It’s a simple drop cookie; nothing elaborate here, but the taste makes up for its plain appearance. In my eyes, you can never go wrong with a chocolate-peanut butter combo, but in here you have a subtle hint of maple in the background to usher the flavors in.
And the best part is that most of the ingredients (actually all of them) are staples in my kitchen so I can crank out a batch of these cookies at last minute notice. That’s a handy recipe to have in one’s arsenal, especially around this hectic time of year.

1 ¾ c. all-purpose flour
1 ½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 ½ c. peanut butter baking chips
1 c. chocolate chips
Combine oil and sugars. Add eggs and beat well; then add vanilla and maple syrup, mixing to combine. Add oats, flour, salt, and baking soda and mix well. Stir in peanut butter chips and chocolate chips. Refrigerate dough for an hour.
