  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 1/2 cups uncooked regular oats, divided
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (11.5-ounce) package chocolate chunks, divided

  1. Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugars, beating well. Add peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla; beat well. Add 4 1/4 cups oats, soda, and salt; stir well. Stir in 1 cup chocolate pieces and pecans. (Dough will be stiff.)
  2. Pack dough into a 1/4-cup measure. Drop dough 4 inches apart onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Lightly press each cookie with fingertips into a 3 1/2-inch circle. Press 3 or 4 remaining chocolate chunks into each cookie and sprinkle with remaining oats.
