Ingredients

  • 1 stick 4 oz unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup 3.5 oz granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup 3.5 oz brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup 2.5 oz peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all purpose flour stirred and then spooned into the cup (4.5 oz)
  • 1/2 teaspoon EACH - baking powder baking soda and salt.
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 1/2 cups Cheerios
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips a little more if you like chocolate

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment or foil.
  • With an electric mixer, beat the butter and both sugars until creamy. Stir in the peanut butter, egg and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, then add the flour mixture to the butter mixture; stir until incorporated.
  • Stir in the cheerios and chocolate chips.
  • Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto the baking sheets. Bake one sheet at a time at 375° for 10-12 minutes.
  • Let cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and let the cookies cool completely before serving. They are much better when cool.

Notes

Substitute butterscotch chips, throw in some salted peanuts, top with a little sea salt and call them Salted Butterscotch Cheerios Peanut Butter Cookies
