Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chip Cookies


A little late-night baking resulted in these delicious bite-sized treats. It's funny, you can hardly see the peanut butter chips once they're baked. The color of the chips blend in with the oatmeal cookies themselves, so it's sort of a surprise. I love having these cookies in my cookiejar. They're such a welcoming treat when you get home from a long day. Rating: 3.5 out of 5.



Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chip Cookies: The Complete Magnolia Bakery Cookbook - Allysa Torey & Jennifer Appel

Ingredients:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¾ cup (1 ½ sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- ¾ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 large egg, at room temperature
- 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 ½ cups quick-cooking oats (not regular, old-fashioned rolled oats)
- 1 cup peanut butter chips (I suggest using ¾ cup)

Instructions:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream butter with the sugars until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla, and beat well. Add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Stir in the oats and peanut butter chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, leaving several inches between for expansion. Bake for 11-13 minutes.
- Cool the cookies on the sheets for 5 minutes, and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.


I know it's naughty, but I've been sandwiching these with some Nutella
smeared between them. Double deliciousness!

I love peanut butter, I love oats and I LOVE the sound of these cookies. So don't these work with rolled oats at all? xx

I have been dying to try these but getting peanut butter chips over here is hugely expensive, I'll have to stock up if I get to visit the U.S. this year beacuse your cookies look gorgeous. x

Lovely cookies, just the sort my Mum used to make (of course nothing as exotic as peanut butter chips back then!!)

Cookies in the jar is such a comfort, especially after a long tiring day at work! And yes, the cookies have to look appetizing too like these oatmeal peanut butter chip cookies :-)

Happy baking!

Yum I love this combination. Sometimes if I'm craving peanut butter, I put a little blob on my toasted museli ;) This is one step better.

Yum .. I got in the mood to make oatmeal cookies last night and did so ... they would have been even yummier with the addition of peanut butter! I can see by following this blog that my dessert recipe book is going to be bulging (hopefully not my pants tummy!). Thanks for stopping by the blog this week, sweetie. Belle left you a little note there in response for next time you're by: http://oohlafroufrou.blogspot.com ~ have a lovely weekend! xoxo
