Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is a super easy cookie recipe that I like to share with my classes and they're always a hit!  It really shows how you can incorporate whole grains into just about anything.  And with the use of natural peanut butter, rolled oats and whole grains, it's super good for you too!  In moderation, of course Ü.

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth--to your liking)--I like to use the natural PB, but Jif or Skippy work fine too
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup whole wheat flour (Prairie Gold or soft white)
1/2 cup rolled oats (not the instant kind)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips

With mixer, cream together butter & peanut butter.  Add egg and sugars, mixing well.  Add dry ingredients and vanilla, then incorporate chocolate chips.  Use cookie scooper to make about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.  Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
