milling mondays: whole wheat chocolate chip peanut butter oat cookies

These whole wheat chocolate chip peanut butter oat cookies taste amazing! In fact the official name for this cookie should just be yummy cookie. The chocolate chip and peanut butter flavors blend together perfectly. Every bite offers a large amount of chocolate. The dark chocolate and milk chocolate adds a nice combination of flavor. All I can say is, do yourself a favor and make these cookies!

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oat Cookies
adapted from pinchofyum


1/2 cup of unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup white sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup whole wheat flour (ratio: 2/3 soft wheat berries and 1/3 hard wheat berries)
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350F.

Mix together the butter and sugar until creamy.

Then mix in the peanut butter, vanilla and egg.

If you mill your own flour, grind your soft and hard wheat berries. I use my WonderMill on the pastry setting.  Sift the flour once or twice to make the cookie less dense.

Mix in the flour, baking soda and salt to the batter.

Fold in the oats and chocolate chips.

Spoon the cookies onto a baking stone (or greased baking sheet).

Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes until lightly brown.

Let the cookies rest on the baking stone for a couple of minutes before letting them completely cool on a rack.


ENJOY this delicious treat!
