Chocolate Chip & Peanut Butter Oat Bran cookies.
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter,melted
- 1 egg (or 2 egg whites)
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup all natural creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup white or whole wheat flour
- 1-1/2 cups Oat Bran cereal
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Start by mixing melted butter into a bowl with both white and brown sugars. Then add your egg and blend together.
Next, add peanut butter and vanilla
Once the mixture is smooth, add flour, oat bran, baking powder and baking soda into the bowl.
Then mix in your dark chocolate chips.
Using 1/2 Tablespoon (or however big you want your cookies), place batter on an ungreased pan.
I always line my pan with aluminum foil for easy clean up
Criss cross the cookies with a fork to create the peanut butter cookie symbol.
Bake @ 350 for about 12 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown.
Compared to oatmeal based cookies, oat bran has a lighter and more delicate
Enjoy the rest of your weekends!! xoxo
