This easy recipe makes chewy cookies that are a combination of 3 classics: chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal cookies, and peanut butter cookies!
Combine the dry ingredients. In a medium bowl combine the oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Mix wet ingredients. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment combine both sugars with the butter and beat on medium high speed for about two minutes until light and fluffy. Add the peanut butter and mix again until just combined. Add the eggs and vanilla extract. Mix until just combined.
Add the dry ingredients into the stand mixer and mix until well combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix until combined. Scrape down the bottom and sides of the bowl to make sure everything has been well incorporated.
Chill the cookie dough & preheat the oven. Chill the dough in the fridge for at least one hour. While the cookies are chilling, preheat your oven to 350°. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
Scoop the cookie dough. Remove the chilled dough from the fridge, and scoop into balls, about 2 tablespoons each. Place on the prepared cookie sheet leaving at least 2 inches between each cookie. I can usually bake five cookies at a time on a standard size baking sheet. They will spread a bit as they bake.
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until the edges are golden. Cool for 10 minutes before removing to a cooling rack. The cookies need this 10 minute resting time to finish baking. Do not over bake the cookies or they will be hard.
