One Cup Cookies call for 1 cup of most ingredients. This version includes wheat bran, which makes them a little bulkier and more filling.

1cup8 oz salted butter, if using unsalted add 1 teaspoon salt
1cuplight brown sugar280 grams
1cupgranulated sugar280 grams
1cuppeanut butter250 grams
1cupall-purpose flour130 grams
1cupchopped and toasted walnuts and/or pecans
1cupshredded or flaked coconut
1cupdark chocolate chunks or dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter and both sugars until creamy. Add vanilla and beat until blended, then add eggs one by one and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in peanut butter, then add baking soda and beat until thoroughly blended. With mixer on the lowest speed or by hand, add the flour and stir until blended. Stir in the oats, nuts, bran, coconut and chocolate.
Scoop up dough by slightly rounded tablespoons and shape into balls. If desired, you may chill the dough first or you may shape the dough into balls and chill the balls before baking.
Arrange 2 ½ inches apart on a foil lined baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
Chilling the dough will improve the shape of the cookie somewhat, but it's not necessary.
