Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip & Toffee Cookies
So I promised to make cookies for this charity event to help kids with math and reading. I wanted something different than the normal chocolate chip cookie. So I whipped these up as a treat for the kids.
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup wheat flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup regular milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup toffee bits (I like the Heath Bar kind)
1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. In a bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda.
3. In another bowl cream butter and sugars. Whisk in egg and vanilla extract until combined. Next add the peanut butter until combined scrapping down the sides of the bowl.
4. Slowly stir in the dry mixture to the wet mixture until just combined. Next add in the oats and mix until evenly distributed.
5. Add in mini semi sweet chocolate chips, regular milk chocolate chips, and toffee pieces and mix until even distributed.
6. Using a cookie scoop, drop onto a non stick baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for about 9 minutes or until cookies turn a golden brown. Keep a eye on the cookies because they will be a little darker than normal because of the wheat flour.
7. Remove from oven and let cool for about 5-10 minutes on baking sheet. Then move to cooling racks to cool completely.
These cookies came out really yummy and just chewy enough. All the chips made it super yummy. Oh and the wheat flour and oats made them healthy. Right? Muahahahaha!
But, something happened and the event was canceled. However, no one told me about this. So guess what they did. Some of the volunteers just divided up my cookies and ate them! I guess at least someone got to enjoy them. Wish it were me!
