1 ½ cups old fashioned rolled oats
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup margarine or butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
¾ cup peanut butter
2 large eggs
12 oz bag of semi sweet chocolate chips
8 oz semi sweet chocolate grated
Bake 325 degrees 15 minutes or till golden brown
In a food processor pulse 1 cup of oats until ground fine. In a large bowl stir together ground oats, remaining ½ cup whole oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In another large bowl with electric mixer, beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy and beat in vanilla and peanut butter. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition, and gradually beat in flour mixture. Add chocolate chips and grated chocolate, beating until just combined. Chill cookie dough, covered, at least 2 hours, and up to one week.
Form rounded tablespoons of dough into balls and arrange about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten balls slightly.
Bake cookies in the middle of the oven 15 minutes, or until just golden brown. Cool cookies on baking sheet 5 minutes and then transfer to racks to cool.
Makes about 60 cookies
