Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these cookies for the first time as part of my Christmas baking. These are absolutely the best cookies ever. Seriously, these are officially my favorite cookie.

1 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ c creamy peanut butter
½ c granulated sugar
1/3 c light brown sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
½ c rolled oats
1 c semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. On medium speed, cream together the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and beat to combine. On low speed, gradually add the flour until just combined. Stir in the oats, and then the chocolate chips. Using a tablespoon drop a walnut size dough ball onto prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. (Note: the original recipe suggested a 3 tbsp. sized dough ball but I didn't want monster cookies). Before placing in the oven slightly smash the dough down so it is not in a ball shape. Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden. Cool completely on the baking sheet and then store in an airtight container at room temperature.
