My friend brought these over to me fresh out of the oven and I ate all 6 right away. I'm sensing a theme here with me devouring a lot of cookies in one sitting! I don't really know why they are called breakfast cookies because they have all the makings of a regular cookie but they were extra soft....
Recipe from Renee Waterer, in my ward
1/4 c. butter, margarine, or shortening
3/4 c. white sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 t. vanilla
1 c. peanut butter
3 c. uncooked oats (rolled better than quick)
1 + 1/4 t. baking soda
3-4 oz. chocolate chips (2/3 c-1 c)
optional: 2 T. flour and 2 T water, for high altitude
Blend butters and sugars. Blend in vanilla and eggs. Combine oats, baking soda, and flour in another bowl. Drizzle in the 2 T. water while stirring into the mixture of oats. Add the oat mixture to butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes. The edges only should start to turn golden, let cookies sit for 1-2 minutes to finish cooking the center. Remove to rack and enjoy!
