Brown Eyed Baker

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:

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

  1. When you say 1/4 a stick of butter are you saying that you want two tablespoons of butter? You did not complete the ( cup) of butter. It was a little confusing. I have never seen 1/4 of a stick of butter before in a recipe. It seems to be a little lean in the butter category.

    • Oh Man! Cammy great catch, I totally messed up. It should have been 1 stick, 1/2 cup butter. I also had the wrong amount of salt. ugh! Sorry if this tripped anyone up.

  2. Can you clarify the amount of the granulated sugar, the PB, and the oats? It just says “cup” and I want to make sure. Thanks! This is on my to-do list for this week :)

    • Good catch! Sorry about that. My NoshBot site wasn’t smart enough to handle the 1/2 and 1/3 characters… I will add that to the fix list.
