From: For the Love of Cooking

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Using an electric mixer, combine melted butter and granulated sugar until fluffy. Add peanut butter and brown sugar, beating well until thoroughly combined. Add egg and vanilla and mix until smooth. In a small bowl stir together flour and baking soda, then add to cookie dough and mix just until blended. Using a mixing spoon, stir in oatmeal and chocolate chips.
Scoop balls of cookie dough and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheets.
