Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love starting the week with cookies.

You'll never guess where the inspiration for these cookies came from!




I know - such obscure places, huh?

Oh, and my love for cookies is always an unspoken place of inspiration for a cookie recipe.


Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup canola oil
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups flour
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the oil with the sugars.  Add the eggs, vanilla and peanut butter and mix again.  Add the remaining ingredients and stir until just combined.  Use a cookie scoop to scoop cookies on a cookie sheet.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 8-12 minutes, depending on how big your cookies are and how done you want them.  Don't overbake or they will be crumbly.
