1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup peanut butter

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 large egg

2 tsp vanilla

1 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup old-fashioned or quick oats

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/2-1 cup chocolate chips or chopped chocolate/chocolate bars

1/2 cup crushed pretzels

anything else you like


1Preheat the oven to 350F. In a large bowl, beat the butter, peanut butter and brown sugar until creamy; beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the flour, oats, baking soda and salt and beat on low or stir until the dough comes together. As you stir, add the chocolate, pretzels or chips, and anything else you like.

2Drop by the large spoonful (or use a scoop) onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden around the edges, but still soft in the middle. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Makes about 1 1/2 dozen cookies.

    Hi Julie,
    I felt like baking brownies today and I haven’t found THE recipe yet so I tried yours. Delicious! Also, I heard about the Trash Cookies on the Eyeopener. I actually didn’t have any candy left from Halloween so bought “Scaries” on sale. The cookies are amazing! I added Scaries, chocolate chips and pretzels. Yum!!
    Thank you,
