Best Cookies Ever


I love a classic peanut butter and chocolate combination in any kind of dessert. And cookies happen to be my most favorite kind of dessert. (Anyone a Gary Gulman fan? You have to listen to his Cookie stand-up bit...hilarious!)

So like I mentioned last week, B Daddy and I spent the weekend with the high school small groups we lead at a church retreat and I decided to make cookies for the occasion. Which turned out to be the best cookies ever as a matter of fact.

I wanted to involve peanut butter and chocolate naturally and M&Ms happened to be on sale at Publix....so I put it all together and added some oatmeal for health purposes. ;) They turned out to be absolutely delicious. Make these fairly large so they stay nice and soft and serve with a glass of ice cold milk. Oh so yummy!



Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted from Brown-Eyed Baker, makes about 30 cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup M&Ms

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

3. On medium speed, cream together the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and beat to combine. On low speed, gradually add the flour until just combined. Stir in the oats, and then the chocolate chips.

4. Use a large cookie scoop (3 tablespoons) and drop dough onto prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden. Cool completely on the baking sheet and then store in an airtight container at room temperature.
