Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut butter, chocolate chips, and oats all in one cookie. I don’t know about you, but for me, that has to be one of the best cookie combinations ever. Simply put. . .these cookies are amazing!

The oats lend a slight nutty flavor that compliments the chocolate chips perfectly. And the peanut butter, well, it’s peanut butter. . .what’s not to like!
These cookies are thick and soft with the right amount of chewiness and have quickly become a favorite around here! The hardest part about making these cookies is waiting for them to bake. The ten minutes of baking can seem like forever with the wonderful aroma of chocolate and peanut butter coming from your oven!

Sometimes the simple flavors are the best! Be sure to not over bake these to keep them light and chewy. They will just be just starting to set when they come out of the oven and will continue to set while cooling. . .that is if you can wait that long to eat them!

I tried these with normal peanut butter, and without the 1/4c sugar substitute... They were magical, thank you. :)
