Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
Recipe type: Cookies
Serves: 24 cookies
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup natural, unsweetened peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cups rolled oats
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup chocolate chips (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Add the butter and sugar to a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar for about 3 minutes, until fluffy and lighter in color. Add the peanut butter and mix until combined. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda and stir to combine. Stir in the oats. Gradually add the flour/oat mixture to the sugar mixture, using a wooden spoon to stir just until combined. Do not over-stir.
  4. Scoop the batter by the tablespoon to form 1-inch balls and place them on a cookie sheet. Press down on each one with a fork to create a criss-cross pattern.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to sit for 2 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool.
