Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies…

Wow, there is a lot going on in this little cookie, but it has all of my favorite things.

I have been wanting a peanut butter cookie for awhile, but when I make a sweet treat, I try to make it somewhat healthier.  So here is my attempt based on a Martha Stewart cookie from her Cookies cookbook.

I love this little cookie.  It is crispy!  Sometimes when I reduce the butter or try to add an oil substitute it turns into a cake like cookie.  Which is fine for some cookies, but a peanut butter cookie needs to be crispy.  These didn’t spread out like I figured they would, so you can put a lot on one cookie sheet.  They are super yummy, light and crispy and full of goodness.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adapted from: Martha Stewart’s Cookies
Yield: 6 dozen
Preheat oven: 35o°

Ingredients

  • 3 cups old fashion rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar substitute (I used Splenda)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) room temperature butter
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon good vanilla extract
  • 2 cups salted peanuts (lightly chopped)
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Stir together oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in medium bowl.
  2. Cream sugars, butter and peanut butter in mixer on medium speed until pale and fluffy (about 5 minutes).  Add eggs and vanilla.
  3. Reduce mixer speed to low and add oat mixture until just combined.  Mix in peanuts and chocolate chips by hand.
  4. Use a small ice cream scoop or cookie scoop (about 1.5 inches).  Drop onto cookie sheet about 1 inch apart.
  5. Bake cookies, rotating sheet halfway through, for about 13 to 15 minutes until set.  Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling racks to cool completely.

I hope you enjoy, I know we sure did!
