  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer or a large bowl if using a hand mixer, beat the butter until smooth then add the sugars and beat until creamed, about 2 minutes.
  • Add eggs, peanut butter and vanilla and beat on high until combined. Add the dry ingredients and beat until combined, add oats and beat until combined. Beat in chocolate chips.
  • Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes. If longer, let it warm up at room temperature for 30 minutes.

You can freeze cookies before or after baking. If before baking, you don't need to thaw just add a minute or two to the cooking time.
