So, when my boys wanted some cookies to sell at their Lemonade Stand last weekend, I decided peanut butter chocolate chip would be the way to go.
These cookies are a little different because I used some ground oats in them to lighten up the texture and give them a nuttier flavor.
1 cup peanut butter (I prefer chunky)
1 cup butter (at room temperature)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar (plus more for dusting)
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1-1/2 cup flour
1 cup oats (toasted and ground)
1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Yield: 2-3 dozen 3" cookies
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the ground oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
Mix until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes).
Add the chocolate chips.
Cover, and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.
Using a large spoon or dough scoop, drop a Tablespoon-sized ball of dough into a bowl of granulated sugar.
