Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar firmly packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups uncooked old fashioned oats not instant
  • 1 cup dried blueberries
  • 1 package (10 ounces) package peanut butter chips
  • 1 tablespoon butter for greasing the cookie sheet
  • A cookie sheet with sides 17-1/2 by apprx. 11-1/2 inches

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  • In medium size bowl, add flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Stir the dry ingredients together and set aside. 
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg and vanilla extract. Beat until light and fluffy. 
  • Turn the mixer speed to low and slowly add the flour mixture. Once incorporated, turn the mixer to a higher speed until a dough forms.
  • Using a spatula or large spoon, stir in the oatmeal, dried blueberries, and peanut butter chips. 
  • Grease a cookie sheet with butter. Add all of the cookie dough onto the baking sheet. 
  • Using a rubber spatula or large spoon, gently spread the cookie dough out evenly over the entire bottom of the cookie sheet. Keep the dough about 1/8th of an inch away from all sides of the sheet.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for about 19 to 20 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven when the dough in the middle of the pan is still slightly soft.
  • Let the pan sit on a rack to cool. It should continue to cook a bit more in the middle of the pan from the residual heat. 
  • After 20 minutes, use a large pizza cutter or knife to cut the cookie into bars. Carefully remove the cookie bars from the pan onto a rack to cool further.  
  • Serve once the cookie bars have cooled.
