Chocolate Chip-Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Cookie

Chocolate Chip-Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Cookie

This chunky oatmeal-chocolate chip cookie recipe features the addition of peanut butter and will remind you of the classic no-bake cookies with oatmeal, peanut butter and chocolate.
Yields:  30 cookies

Directions:
  1. In a bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter until well blended.
  2. Beat in eggs and vanilla until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.
  3. In another bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Stir or beat into butter mixture until well incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips & oats.
  5. Drop dough in rounded 2-tablespoon portions, 3 inches apart, onto buttered or cooking parchment-lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.
  6. With a lightly floured fork, flatten slightly into 2 1/2-inch rounds about 1/2 inch thick.
  7. Bake in a 350° oven until cookies are golden and tops feel set when lightly pressed, 8-10 minutes (they will feel underdone but will firm up as they cool);
  8. Let stand 5 minutes on sheets, then, with a wide spatula, transfer cookies to racks to cool.
