I made 32 smaller cookies (around 100 cal/cookie) or you can make 16 larger cookies.
- 1 c whole wheat pastry flour (or you can use all purpose)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 c unsalted butter, at room temperature (I use Earth Balance vegan vegetable blend)
- 1/2 c creamy peanut butter (try the freshly ground---Mmmm)
- 1/2 c granulated sugar
- 1/3 c light brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1/2 c rolled oats
- 1 c dark chocolate chips (I split the dough and used 1/2 c dark chocolate chips in one half and 1/4 c chopped peanuts in the other)
Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl; set aside.
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.
|How can you not like chocolate?!?|
|But just in case you don't, there is always this version|
|I really need some new baking sheets or maybe some of those silpats|
|These are perfect all the way through|
|You better go preheat your oven :)|
