What's this?

These protein packed cookies will rock your next expedition. The oats are smoked before being baked into the dough for a true outdoor treat.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Oats, old fashioned

  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 Cup butter, softened

  • 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter Smooth or Chunky

  • 1/2 sugar

  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar, firmly packed

  • 1 Whole large egg

  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks or Chips

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 2

    Line a sturdy rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 3

    Spread the oats in an even layer on the baking sheet.
  • 4

    Place the baking sheet on the grill grate and smoke the oats for 15 minutes, stirring once.
  • 5

    Remove from the grill. Increase the temperature of the Traeger to 375℉ and let it preheat.
  • 6

    In the meantime, make the cookie dough: Let the smoked oats cool completely. Lift the sides of the parchment paper up and tip the oats into a mixing bowl. (Return the parchment paper to the baking sheet; you'll reuse it for the cookies.) Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and stir to combine. Set aside.
  • 7

    In another bowl - such as the bowl of a stand mixer - combine the butter, peanut butter, and sugar.
  • 8

    Mix on medium-high speed (you can use a hand-held mixer or a wooden spoon and elbow grease) until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  • 9

    Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  • 10

    Gradually add the oatmeal-flour mixture using low speed. Stir in the chocolate chunks by hand.
  • 11

    Drop the dough by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheet and flatten slightly with the back of a tablespoon.
  • 12

    Bake for about 12 minutes, or until the cookies have spread and are lightly browned.
  • 13

    Remove the baking sheet from the grill. Let the cookies firm up for a minute or two, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool.
  • 14

    Repeat with the remainder of the dough. Store in an airtight container. Serve and enjoy!
