Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies


How about some awesome cookies? I'm a real sucker for anything with peanut butter, and when you add chocolate.. and oatmeal.. and actual peanuts? Well, these are some really good cookies, that's for sure.

As most cookies, they freeze well, but even better is freezing the scoops of dough, so you can bake a few cookies just when you want to eat them. Frozen cookies are fine, but freshly baked ones are always better. This was definitely a major discovery for me. As was cookie scoops, for that matter - such excellent tools!

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Makes about 35 cookies

125 g butter
100 g peanut butter
100 g brown sugar
100 g sugar

1 tsp baking powder
125 g flour

1 tsp vanilla sugar
125 g milk chocolate, coarsely chopped

Whisk butter, peanut butter and both types of sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the egg, and whisk for a few more minutes. Add all other ingredients, and mix until you have a cohesive dough.
