Grandma Wood's cookies

I have fond memories of cooking with my grandma when I was young. She always baked the best bread, sweet rolls and desserts. She had an amazing peanut butter, oatmeal, chocolate chip cookie recipe and sadly, I don't know the origin, but I've seen similar recipes online. I made these for my wedding five years ago. These cookies have a special place in my heart, and my stomach!

Here is my grandma's version:

Ingredients (approximately 20 cookies)
1 c all-purpose flour
1 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/2 c (1 stick) room-temperature butter
1/2 c chunky peanut butter
1/2 c sugar
1/3 c brown sugar
1 t vanilla extract
1 room-temperature egg
1/2 rolled oats
1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together flour, baking soda and salt, and set aside.

Mix butter, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until light and creamy. Add egg and mix. Gradually add flour mixture. Once combined, stir in oats and chocolate chips.

On a parchment lined cookie sheet, scoop dough (approximately 2 T dough for each cookie or smaller  if you prefer). Bake 8-10 minutes until lightly brown.
