  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup quick cook oats
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • In a large bowl, cream together butters and sugars until fluffy.
  • Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
  • Mix together dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until the dough comes together.
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Roll spoonfuls of dough into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake at 375°F for 10 to 12 minutes.


TIP: Sift your flour and other dry ingredients making sure to get rid of any lumps.
TIP: Leave about 1½ to 2 inches of space between cookies on the sheet, keeping in mind that they’ll expand quite a bit.
TIP: To quickly judge if your cookies are ready, remove the rack from the oven a bit, and push at the sides of a cookie lightly with either a spatula or carefully your finger. If the edge stays firm and doesn’t fall inwards, then your cookies are done.
