Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter & Oatmeal Cookies
These cookies are soft and chewy, perfectly peanut buttery, and just the right amount of salty-sweet to keep you coming back for more. This is the perfect cookie for any gathering, afternoon sweet craving or heck, even breakfast. It's oatmeal right?
- 1 sticks salted butter, softened
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
- 1 egg
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2/3 cup rolled oats
- 2/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- Flaky sea salt for topping
In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars. Add peanut butter and mix until fully incorporated.
Add egg and vanilla. Mix until combined.
Sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Add to bowl along with rolled oats. Mix until just combined. (Be sure not to overmix.)
Scoop dough, with a medium sized scoop, ( I used two small scoops and rolled them together) onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 14-15 minutes or until edges are just starting to brown. (The longer you bake them, the less chewy they will be)
Transfer baked cookies onto cooling rack to cool.
