Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients: – 1/2 cup unsalted butter (112 grams), softened – 1/2 cup packed brown sugar (100 grams) – 1/3 cup granulated sugar (66 grams) – 1/2 cup peanut butter (120 grams) – 1 large egg – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (94 grams) – 3/4 teaspoon baking soda – 1/4 teaspoon salt – 3/4 cup quick oat – 1/2 cup old-fashioned oat

Instructions: 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C or 170°C fan forced). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

In a large bowl, beat together the butter, sugars, and peanut butter until creamy and no lumps remain.

Mix in the egg and vanilla extract. Add in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Do a few stirs by hand first, then turn the mixer to a low speed and beat together until combined.

Turn off the mixer and stir in the quick oats and old-fashioned oats.

Form the dough into balls about with about 1 - 1.5 tablespoons each. They'll be about the size of a ping pong ball. Place 2 inches apart on a lined cookie sheet. Do not flatten.

Bake 1 sheet at a time for 9-12 minutes in the middle of the oven, or until the tops are just set.

Remove from the oven. Cool cookies on the cookie tray for 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack and continue cooling.
