Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Rounds

This recipe is taken from Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook.  I used 1 cup chocolate chips instead of the peanuts. Super yummy!  



3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup chopped cocktail peanuts or semisweet chocolate pieces

1.  In a large mixing bowl beat butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed about 30 seconds or until combined.  Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda.  Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.  Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.  Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer.  Stir in any remaining flour.  Stir in rolled oats and peanuts.

2.  Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake in a 375F oven about 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.  Transfer cookies to wire rack and let cool.  
Makes about 48 cookies
