PB Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

 We have about 9 inches of snow on the ground and didn't go anywhere today so I decided to bake cookies with the kids (as well as vacuuming, dusting, picking up, couple loads of laundry, and oatmeal fruit bars...all before noon!).  Found this one at Brown Eyed Baker and they turned out really good.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick unsalted butter, at room temp (I used margarine)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (I used crunchy)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

On medium speed, cream together butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla, about 3 minutes.  Add the egg and beat to combine.  On low speed, gradually add flour until just combined.  Stir in oats, then chocolate chips.

Use a large cookie scoop and drop dough onto prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart.  Bake 10 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden.  They won't look done but they'll continue cooking on the pan a bit.  Cool completely on baking sheet and then store in airtight container at room temp.
