Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip& Mini Reese's Cup Cookies

So, It's a long title. But it's a delicious cookie. Ever since Reese's started making the mini unwrapped, I knew I had to put it in a cookie. But, I've been on this whole "let's try and be healthier" kick, so I made the cookies oatmeal. (Note: making them oatmeal cookies is just pandering to my guilt. I don't think these are really healthy cookies, just the oatmeal makes them seem that way.)

You will need:
2 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 1/4 cups Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Sugar
1 cup Butter
1/4 cup Peanut Butter
2 Eggs
1 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract
3 cups Oats (I use Quaker Old Fashioned)
2 cups Chocolate Chips
1 package Reese's Mini Unwrapped (8oz.)

Preheat your over to 375 degrees. Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl, and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, cream together brown sugar, sugar, butter, and peanut butter. Add the eggs, one at a time, and add the vanilla extract. Gradually add the flour mixture. Now, if your using an electric mixer, stop at this point, because adding the oats will kill it. Stir in the oats by hand (work those muscles!) and then add the chocolate chips and peanut butter cups. Scoop out dough in tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Try to make sure there is at least one peanut butter cup in every cookie. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cool and enjoy.
