Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

You can't beat a fresh cookie out of the oven. You can't beat the combination of anything chocolate and peanut butter either. These little treats are delicious and I'm glad I found this recipe on Pinterest.

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with baking paper and set aside. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. On medium speed, cream together the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract for about 3 minutes (I gave myself a right arm workout because I don't have a mixer). Add the egg and beat to combine. On low speed, gradually add the flour until combined. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips. Drop about 3 tablespoons of cookie dough onto baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Repeat until all cookie dough is on baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes, or until cookies are lightly golden and irresistible to taste. Cool completely on the baking sheet and store in an airtight container at room temperature.
