Print Pin
Servings: 12
Author: Maria Jose

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Plain flour
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted butter (room temp)
  • 1/2 cup Creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 1 Egg (@ room temp)
  • 1/2 cup Oats (I used regular Quaker oats)
  • 1 cup Butterscotch/Chocolate chip

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180 C, 10 mins before baking. Line two baking sheets with parchment/baking paper.
  • Whisk together the four, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  • On medium speed, cream together the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla essence, about 3 mins. Add the egg and beat to combine. On low speed, gradually add the flour until just combined. Stir in the oats, and the butterscotch/chocolate chips.
  • Use a large cookie scoop (3 tbsps) and drop dough onto prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart (refer notes). Bake for 10 mins (refer notes) or until the cookies are lightly golden. Cool completely on the baking sheet and then store in an airtight container at room temp.

Notes

The original recipe says that it yields 16 cookies, but I got 24 cookies. I used around 1.5 tbsp of dough for each cookie. One portion of the dough weighed 30-31 gms. If you want all the cookies to have uniform size, I recommend you weigh each portion of the dough. I baked only 1 dozen initially and froze the second dozen. After dividing the dough, allow it to freeze for sometime (say 30-60 mins). Once it is frozen, store them in a zip lock bag in the freezer. Thaw it in the fridge overnight for baking. You can freeze the dough for 2-3 weeks. I baked the cookies @ 180 C, for 12-14 mins. Since the cookies on the middle was getting baked faster, I rotated the baking sheets after 10 mins of baking. It's better to keep a close watch on the cookies after the first 10 mins of baking.

  1. Hey Maria,
    I think a Thank you note from me to you is long overdue. I have been baking your recipes since last 5 years now. Honestly I am not a big fan of baking.. but I have been doing it nevertheless for my family and nowadays especially for my 2 year old (she is a huge snacker).
    I am an old school person who loves reading recipes rather than watching a video of it (my sister call me weird.. so I know) and so Marias Menus is my “I have no doubt that the recipe will turn out excellent ” place.
    Trust me when I say this.. I have tried plenty of your cakes, cupcakes and cookies.. not a single one has gone wrong. So when my family thinks that I am good baker and I simply take the credit myself(hahaha.. sorry Maria.. I never tell them that all I do is follow your recipes to T)
    Though I do not bake that often, I like my baked goodies to have a proper traditional, lengthy, time taking and perfect recipes.(not a fan of “Easy” baking).
    Thank you so much for all your recipes. You have always kept my trust in giving Perfect recipes. If my daughter is snacking on healthy goodies.. all thanks to you again.
    Best wishes and regards.

    PS: I tried the Peanut butter oatmeal butterscotch cookies just yesterday and it came out just perfect.
