Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Susan Bartley


This cookie was birthed as a result of a friend who likes, peanut butter cookies, oatmeal cookies and chocolate chip cookies. I laughed that they liked the 3 most popular cookies they needed them all in one. So thus this cookie was born. I took the recipes for all three and combined parts of each to come up with this recipe. Everyone seems to prefer it made with milk chocolate chips. However you can use semi sweet chocolate chips. I have also made them with Hershey's Delightfulls too.
