Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups organic all-purpose flour (I use Bob's Red Mill)
  • 2 cups rolled oats, GF if preferred! (I use Bob's Red Mill)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup pure cane sugar (I use Wholesome Sweets)
  • 1/2 cup organic brown sugar (I use Sugar in the Raw)
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened at room temp. (I use Earth Balance)
  • 2 large eggs, at room temp. (I use Organic Valley)
  • 3/4 cup organic peanut butter, softened
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli)

Instructions

  • Begin by lining a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, pinch of cinnamon, and sea salt in a large bowl and set aside.
  • Now, in the bowl of your electric stand-mixer (w/ a paddle attachment), beat together the butter and both sugars until fluffy and creamy, beating on medium-high speed, about 2-3 minutes. Keeping the mixer’s speed on medium-high, add the eggs, peanut butter, and vanilla extract and beat for another 1-2 minutes until well combined. Be sure to scrape the bottom and sides if needed.
  • Reducing to low-speed, add the dry ingredients and continue mixing until well incorporated, about another 1-2 minutes or so. 
  • Next, add the chocolate chips and gently stirring using a rubber spatula, until fully incorporated into the batter, about 10 seconds. **NOTE: The batter should be sticky + thick.**
  • Once done, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or freeze for 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Once chilled, remove cookie dough from the refrigerator and allow it to sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes. Then, form cookie dough balls (using 2 Tbsps worth of cookie dough), and line them up on each baking sheet, keeping them at 2-3 inches apart for when they spread. 
  • Place cookies in oven and bake for 12-14 minutes or until edges are brown. **NOTE: Cookies will look very soft in the middle, however, it will harden once they cool.**
  • Remove them from oven and let cool until fully set before removing them from baking sheet. Repeat until all cookies are made.
  • Bon Appetit!

Notes

STORAGE: Cookies can be stored in a tightly covered container at room temperature for up to 3 days or refrigerated for slightly longer freshness (about 2 weeks). Can be frozen for 4-5 months and reheated to thaw out. Any unused cookie dough batter can be refrigerated for up to 3 days, or frozen for up to 1 month and then thaw overnight in the fridge, if you choose not to use it right away!
