Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


The peanut butter I made recently was just screaming for me to bake with it so I obliged.  I used several recipes for inspiration and finally was happy with the results from this. 

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3 cups oats
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of your electric mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, mix together butter, shortening, and peanut butter, until light and fluffy.  Add in brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract; icorporate thoroughly.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.

Reduce the speed to low and add the flour mixture, mixing until just incorporated. Add the oats and chocolate chips and mix until they are distributed evenly.

Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Drop golf ball size scoops of dough about 2 inches apart onto the baking sheets.

Bake the cookies, rotating and switching the sheets halfway through, until they are just set and golden brown at the edges, about 13 to 15 minutes. Let the cookies cool and set for five minutes before transferring to wire racks.
