Peanut, White Chocolate and Oat Cookies

I swear I start the majority of my posts with 'I love [insert food here]' or 'i'm the biggest fan of [yet another food here]' - but what can I say guys, I LOVE FOOD. Peanut butter and white chocolate are two more cheeky little chappies that are high on my fave food list and these little treats will definitely tickle your taste buds; no, honestly, I made 40 of these cookies and took them in for the boys at work (middle aged men LOVE baked goods) and they were all gone within the space of three hours, shared between six of them might I add.

These should come with a warning; you cannot just have one - taste sensation.

Hereeee we go *in the voice of Mario*...I've definitely had far too much sugar today.

All you need is:

160g plain flour
80g rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
115g of melted and cooled butter, unsalted
1/2 a jar of crunchy peanut butter (Not going to lie to you all, I did put the whole jar in)
200g brown sugar
100g granulated sugar
1 egg and 1 egg yolk, room temp
2 tsp vanilla extract
200-250g white chocolate

First things first, preheat that oven! 160 degrees, go go go!

1. Pop your butter and peanut butter into a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second bursts until all melted. You need to leave this to cool down completely.

2. In a seperate bowl mix your flour, oats, salt and baking powder, set aside. Mix the sugars into your cooled butter/peanut mix until well combined. Then add the egg and egg yolk and vanilla and stir. 

3. Now's the time to gradually add the dry ingredients a little at a time until a dough forms. This will seem really crumbly and like it isn't doing what it should do, naughty, but it will come together I promise! If it is still struggling, add a tsp of milk at a time until it comes together. Now fold in your white choc.

4. Shape the dough into golf sized balls and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes/until the edges are slightly brown, leaving the centres soft and puffy. 

Main rule: do not over bake, they will look their soft, mouthwatering goodness.

Dig in.
