Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate Chips

I developed this recipe for peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, because basically, it combines all of my favorite cookies into one, which makes things a little easier on an indecisive person like myself sometimes.  To me, they are the perfect oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, with a hint of peanut butter - love them!!

You can make these with the same method found in my Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies tutorial.  Just make sure you add the oatmeal in at the same time you add the flour.  I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate Chips

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 Tbsp. oil
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 cup flour
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Combine together all ingredients except the flour, oatmeal, and chocolate chips.  Beat together for at least 5 minutes, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally, to allow the sugars to begin to dissolve into the butters.  Add flour and oats and mix well.  Add chocolate chips and stir until incorporated throughout the dough.  Drop by tsp onto ungreased baking sheets and bake at 375 F for about 10 minutes until the edges are lightly browned.
