Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

After the craziness of my daughters first birthday and being sick I am finally getting around to this cookie recipe. Like seriously, I made these almost 3 weeks ago. I honestly got so distracted, I forgot I hadn't posted about these. And don't you love the name? What a mouthful!
I love peanut butter cookies, and this was the first time I'd made a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. Plus it has oats in it too! I bet you have no clue that the first step to these cookies is softening your butter. Never heard that before right? Once your butter is softened add your sugars, vanilla and peanut butter, then blend until creamy. It should look like the following picture.

Then add your eggs and mix well. Then add your flour, baking soda and salt and blend on low speed until well combined. Then add your oats and stir.

Lastly, add your chocolate chips. It should look like the below picture.
Then drop your dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets. I used a rounded tablespoon and a spoon  to get and keep the dough round. Place them all about 2 inches apart. It should look like this:
Ready for the oven!
You then pop them into a 350 degree oven for about 11 minutes. The should be starting to get a little brown on the top when you take them out. That way they will be a little crispy out and soft inside.
All Done
Allow cookies to cool completely before storing. Or eat one all warm and gooey. 

Recipe (adapted from browneyedbaker)
2 sticks butter (Softened)

Hope you enjoy this recipe! I plan on making 2 new cookies this week and will hopefully have those blogged soon.
