A delicious cookie, that you could even have for breakfast with the added protein from the peanut butter, nuts and oats. Recipe from
Serves: 3 dozen cookies
  • ⅓ cup peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup nuts, chopped {I used walnuts, the recipe called for pecans, either are great}
  • ¾ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup {1 stick} butter, room temp
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup old fashioned oats
  • ¼ cup quick cooking oats
  1. Combine peanut butter and chopped nuts in the food processor and mix until almost smooth
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt, set aside
  3. In a large bowl, beat together butter and both sugars until light and fluffy
  4. Add peanut butter mixture and vanilla, beat to blend well
  5. Beat in egg
  6. Add dry ingredients, mix well
  7. Add oats, mix well
  8. Beat well for another minute
  9. Cover with plastic and place in fridge for at least an hour
  10. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  11. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray
  12. Drop dough by spoon or use a small cookie dough scoop
  13. Bake for 7 minutes, and then turn the pan
  14. Continue baking for 2-4 minutes more
  15. If you want a soft cookie, slightly under bake them {9 minutes} if you like a crisp cookie, bake them for 11 minutes. For the soft cookies, they will look a little doughy in the middle, but don't worry, they continue baking a bit after you remove them from the oven.
