Add the butter, peanut butter and coconut oil to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with blade attachment

Continue to mix until mixture is light and fluffy

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients

Add the oats, mix

Fold in the chocolate chips

Using clean hands, form the dough into cookie dough balls*

Place cookie dough balls on a parchment lined baking sheet

Bake for 10-12 minutes


*the dough may be a little flakey so it is important to use your hands to form the balls instead of just scooping them out with a cookie scoop.
