Nutella Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

So I hope everyone has access to Nutella because it is by far the most delicious creation ever.  These cookies are ridiculously good and I would highly recommend everyone try these.  They are the idyllic combination of chocolate and peanut butter that makes your taste buds dance!  These are most definitely a crowd pleaser!  


                                     

I made these cookies to send to my aunt who was kind enough to put my boyfriend and I up in a hotel and treat us to wonderful dinners and spa treatments over the weekend so we could snowboard in Tahoe!  We had a great weekend and we hope she likes these cookies!





Yield: About 4 dozen tablespoon size cookies

1 Cup Flour
1 Cup Oats
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Cup Butter, unsalted and softened for about an hour
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter, smooth or crunchy, I used smooth
1 Egg
1 1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla
2/3 Cup Nutella

Directions
  1. Heat oven to 375.
  2. Cream butter, sugars, and peanut butter together.  Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
  3. Add dry ingredients - flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Mix until just combined
  4. Slowly stir in Nutella.
  5. Using a tablespoon, scoop dough onto cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 8 minutes or until lightly brown and still soft.  
  7. Enjoy with a cup of milk!
