  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temp.
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon EACH - baking powder, baking soda and salt.

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (a little more if you like chocolate)
Instructions
  1. Cream the butter and both sugars with an electric mixer.
  2. Stir in the peanut butter, egg and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, then add the flour mixture to the butter mixture; stir until incorporated. Add the oatmeal, Cheerios and chocolate chips.
  4. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  5. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes.
Notes
I am not quite sure of the yield yet, as I only baked part of the dough.
