Makes about 18 cookies
115g unsalted butter, softened
115g crunchy peanut butter
115g golden caster sugar
115g light brown soft sugar
½tsp vanilla extract
85g plain flour
1tsp bicarbonate soda
50g dark chocolate, chopped
Preheat your oven to 180°C and grease or line 3 large baking sheets.
Beat the butter, peanut butter, and both sugars together until pale and fluffy. Mix in the egg and vanilla. Sift in the flour, bicarbonate and salt and mix until just incorporated. Finally, fold in the oats and the chocolate.
Spoon out equally sized amounts of the cookie dough onto your baking sheets, then flatten into a nice round disc with the back of a fork. Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 12 minutes, or until the edges are just starting to go brown and crispy.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the trays for 5 minutes before transferring onto a wire rack.
