These are just awesome, everyone loves these as long as they can have nuts. I just recently made these for my coworkers using almond butter instead of peanut butter and the result was a little more subtle but just as good. These might turn into your favorite cookie, until I post my “The Cookie” recipe. (Thanks for the name Mere). Double this recipe if you want a full recipe of 36 cookies, I just eat too many so I only make half which make about 15-20 cookies.
Chocolate Chip Nutbutter Oatmeal Cookies
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup peanut butter or almond butter
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F
Cream butter and sugars together until smooth. Stir in the nut butter, vanilla and egg until it has an even consistency.
In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt stir into the butter/sugar mixture. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.
Drop by tablespoonfuls on to a greased or non-stick cookie sheets
Bake for 8-12 minutes or until you see the until the edges start to brown. One of my tricks to really good cookies is to let them sit on the cookie sheet out of the oven for about 5 minutes until they set. Then transfer them to a cooling rack. That way they set, and don’t fall apart in transport. Although when that happens I just eat the damages goods and call it a day
