Makes about: 55 cookies, 1 tbsp scoop
Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 12 minutes

Whew! The name is a mouthful…and a list of nearly everything in the cookie. These cookies are crispy on the outside and slightly moist on the inside. There’s a nice crunch to them from the oats and from the crunch peanut butter. While delicious, they aren’t really as healthy as they might seem (butter! sugar!) Also, it’s important to use dark brown sugar to get the nice golden tint, since most cookies with less eggs/fat don’t brown as well.

Ingredients
1 ¼ cup whole wheat flour
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup rolled oats
½ tsp cinnamon
1 cup dark brown sugar
½ cup butter, room temp
1/3 cup greek yogurt
½ cup peanut butter (I used crunchy)
1 egg
1 cup chocolate chips

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 375F.
2. Beat together butter, peanut butter and egg.
3. Add sugar.
4. Add salt, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla extract, cinnamon.
5. Add in oats.
6. Add in flour.
7. Add in chocolate chips.
8. Scoop by tablespoons onto prepared pan (they don’t spread that much, FYI).
9. Bake 12 minutes. Enjoy!
