Nutella, Peanut Butter & Oatmeal Cookies

You really can't go wrong with Nutella!
We had 5 days off because of snow last week
and I was running out of things to bake.
Nutella came up the night before during
our dinner conversation with friends so ~
the next day I went on a search for desserts
you can make with Nutella.
I came across a variety of cookie recipes.
I combined ingredients from a few of the
recipes and came up with this cookie.

Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter (crunchy preferred)
1 large egg
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup Nutella

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; set aside. Mix butter, sugars and peanut butter. Add egg and vanilla and mix well. Add flour mixture into wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Slowly stir Nutella into the mixture. Place batter in spoonfuls onto baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

I would say that they were very yummy!
