Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, aka Erin’s Go To Cookie

This has got to be one of my favourite cookies. It comes from a cookbook called The Happy Baker, which is full of delicious recipes and funny stories about dating and heartbreak. This cookie recipe combines my three favourite cookies – peanut butter, oatmeal, and chocolate chip. And there’s coconut! I hope these become your Go To cookie as well as mine. 

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, aka Erin’s Go To Cookie
Bake temp: 375F
Bake time: 10-12 minutes

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup margarine, soft
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup quick cooking oats
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup shredded coconut

In a large bowl, combine sugars and butter, beat until light and fluffy. Add peanut butter, vanilla, and egg; mix well. Stir in flour, oatmeal, baking soda, and salt. Add chocolate chips and coconut. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a greased or lined cookie sheet, approx. 2 inches apart. Flatten slightly with fingers. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes at 375F until golden brown. Let cool on wire racks. Enjoy, and try not to eat them all at once!

The original recipe can be found on page 56 of The Happy Baker: A Dater’s Guide to Emotional Baking by Erin Bolger.
