Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these cookies for my dad for Father's Day this year. He loves a good oatmeal cookie packed with peanut butter and chocolate! On a whim, I threw some white chocolate chips into the cookie dough and it was a great decision. I know the classic combination is milk chocolate and peanut butter, but white chocolate and peanut butter is equally delicious.

Happy Father's Day dad! xo


1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 egg
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

With a mixer, cream together the butter, peanut butter, white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract until smooth. 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.

Drop balls of 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.
