Oven to 325.
Makes 4-5 dozen
Using an electric mixer, cream together on low speed until mixed:
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons baking soda
Add 3 eggs and continue to beat mixture until blended.
Stir in 4 cups rolled oats and 1 cup chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Let them cool on the cookie sheet for a minute or two before moving them to a cooling rack.
Instead of just chocolate chips, I did 3/4 cup chocolate chips, along with 3/4 cup peanut butter chips and they turned out great. Be warned: there's a lot of oatmeal in these suckers and that means a lot of fiber. Great breakfast cookie, right?
