  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

    In a large bowl, add butter, sugars, and peanut butter. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Then mix in egg and vanilla.

    Add flour mixture a 1/2 cup at a time, blending well after each addition. Stir in chocolate.

    Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto non-stick baking sheets. (Avoid using baking sheets you have to grease because the grease can cause your chocolate peanut butter oatmeal cookies to burn.

    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Two extra minutes can mean the difference between rocks or soft chewy oatmeal peanut butter cookies.

    Allow cookies to cool 1 - 2 minutes before removing and placing them on wire racks to cool completely.
