"My husband and I love to create new variations of this recipe, and this is our favorite. We keep the dough in the freezer and make just a few cookies at a time. That way, there's always dough ready for those times when unexpected guests come by for a visit." -CL Reader
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 large egg white
3/4 cup regular oats
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Lightly spoon all-purpose flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine flour and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Place the granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter, peanut butter, vanilla extract, and egg white in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 2 minutes). Add flour mixture, 3/4 cup oats, 1/2 cup raisins, and 1/2 cup chocolate chips, stirring until ingredients are well combined. Cover and freeze cookie dough for 10 minutes.
Divide cookie dough into 30 equal portions, shaping each one into a ball. Place the dough balls 2 inches apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray, and flatten dough balls with the bottom of a glass. Bake the dough balls at 350° for 15 minutes. Remove the cookies from pans, and cool completely on wire racks.
My 15 month old daughter wouldn't even eat these. I couldn't get anywhere near the 30 cookies that I was supposed to make and the dough was all crumbly. They also got pretty hard after they cooled. There just didn't seem to be enough batter to support all the raisins, oatmeal and chocolate chips.
