Chewy peanut butter oatmeal cookies loaded with rich chocolate chunks!
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/4 cups flour
1 1/4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chunks OR chopped dark baking chocolate
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and very lightly grease a large baking sheet (or multiple if you have them).
In a large bowl cream butter and sugars for 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Add vanilla, egg, and peanut butter and mix well.
In a medium bowl whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chunks.
Place balls of cookie dough (about the size of a golf ball) on baking sheet about 3-4 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden. Allow to rest for a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
