As promised, today is a totally different form  of Cbocolate chip peanut butter oatmeal cookie.  This time prep those cookie sheets the same, but lower the oven temp to 350.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies


1 C butter flavored shortening
1 C EACH brown and white sugar
3/4 C chunky peanut butter
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract (or almond is really good too)
1 C flour
1 C whole wheat flour
2 tsps powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 C cocoa powder
2 C 60% chocolate chips
1-1/2 C old fashioned oats
1 C chopped and toasted nuts of your choice (optional)

Cream the shortening, sugars and peanut butter.  Add the eggs and extract.  Before adding to creamed mix, combine the flours, salt, powder and cocoa.  Stir in until just blended.  Then stir in the chips, oats and nuts.

Drop by rounded 2 tbsp portions and leave 3” between cookies.  Flatten to 1/2“.  If you like crisscross patterns, use a floured fork (or cocoa powder).  Bake for about 12-14 minutes and let rest on pans for 5 minutes before cooling on rack.
