If you like peanuts and chocolate, you will probably love these big crunchy cookies with oats, peanuts and chocolate chips!
1/2 cup (120g) butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup (150g) brown sugar
1 medium egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups (100g) rolled oats
1 cup (130g) spelt flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
6 oz. (170g) semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
3.5 oz. (100g) peanut butter chips
1.8 oz. (50g) peanuts, chopped (plus some more)
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with baking parchment and set aside.
2. Add the butter and sugar to a large bowl and mix at high speed until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Add the rolled oats and mix until just combined. Mix the spelt flour with baking powder, baking soda, and salt and add to the bowl – mix until just combined. Add the chopped chocolate, peanut butter chips, and chopped peanuts and fold in. Use a cookie scoop or tablespoons to place dough portions on the prepared baking sheet with enough space in between. Flatten slightly, sprinkle with some more chopped peanuts if you like, and bake for about 10-11 minutes – the edges should have set but the centers of the cookies should still be a bit soft. Take out of the oven and let cool down on the baking sheet for some time, transfer to a wire rack and let cool down completely. Repeat with the remaining dough.
