Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened creamy peanut butter I used Smuckers All Natural (stir variety)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats Opt for certified gluten free oats
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the peanut butter and brown sugar.
  • Add in one egg and mix until smooth.
  • Add in the baking soda, rolled oats, and chocolate chips. Mix until combined.
  • Using a spring loaded cookie scoop, scoop out level rounds of dough.  My scoop measures 1 & 1/2 tablespoons. Roll the dough between the palms of your hands forming a tight ball.  Place the dough in the center of one hand and gently press down to create a flattened disc about 1/4″ thick.
  • Place the cookies 1 inch apart on the baking sheet.  If desired press a few more chocolate chips into the tops of each cookie.
  • Bake for 8 minutes.  Allow the cookies to sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
