Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350º. In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, cream the peanut butter, butter, sugars and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Set aside.

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt and slowly mix into batter. Stir in the oats, chocolate chips and butterscotch chips.

  • Form the dough into roughly 1/4-cup balls and gently flatten each on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Make Ahead

The cookie dough can be tightly rolled with plastic wrap into a log and stored in the freezer for up to 2 months. To bake, remove the dough from the freezer and slice into 1/2-inch pieces. Place on cookie sheet, allow to defrost for 10 minutes, then bake for 10 minutes.
