Homemade Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate Chips

I love cookies – these delicious cookies are a perfect sometimes snack.  My trick is to make treats on Sunday night and then bring them into work to share on Monday.  I eat less and everyone is happy! If you have kids, this is a great recipe for them to get involved and help in the kitchen. My youngest son loves to help (I think it’s so he can taste-test the white chocolate chips!)

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter

1/3 cup peanut butter

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup oats (old-fashioned or quick one minute)

1 1/4 cup flour (we use unbleached – you can buy private label brand at Target)

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup white chocolate chips
