Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

Sometimes when we're in the mood to bake something around here, we just can't agree on what to make. Recently M-girl wanted to make No Bake Cookies, D-boy emphatically did not, and K-boy just wanted something chocolaty and sweet. It was clear to me that the only solution was to wing it and invent something. Some of our best recipes are born this way. Our efforts that day turned into Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies. One taste and all the complaining stopped. I just love cookies like that!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

1 cup chunky peanut butter
2/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup pasteurized egg product
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1&1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In large mixing bowl combine peanut butter, canola oil, eggs, vanilla and sugars. Mix until smooth.

Add dry ingredients, combining well.

Fold in chocolate chips.

Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes.

Yields about 5 dozen cookies.
