Snowday cookies!

What else would we be doing on a snow day? Baking, of course!
I used 1/4 c raw sugar and 1/4c white sugar with the 1/2 c brown sugar this time, mainly because I was getting low on raw sugar. I like the crunch that raw or turbinado sugar gives to cookies, but you could certainly use what you have or prefer. These would also be really fantastic with a 1/2 c chopped pecans and a 1/2 c dried cranberries…I just didn’t gave any today.
Snow day cookies or Peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

3/4 c softened butter
1/2 c peanutbutter
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 c old fashioned oats
1/4 c flax meal
3/4 c semi sweet chocolate chips

Cream together butter, peanut butter, sugars, egg and vanilla until fluffy. Add in all dry ingredients and stir until well combined. Scoop onto a un greased cookie sheet in heaping teaspoons.

Bake at 375 for 7-9 minutes or until golden on the edges.

If you’re worried about making to many cookies to eat before they go stale, portion out 1/2 the dough into a log onto plastic wrap. Roll it up and seal it in another layer of plastic wrap and pop it into the freezer.

Now you have a roll of slice and bake cookies for any day! Enjoy your cookies and stay warm!
