 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           butter -- softened
    1 1/3  cups          sugar
    1 1/3  cups          brown sugar -- firmly packed
    2      large         eggs
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
    1 3/4  cups          all-purpose flour
    1      teaspoon      baking soda
    3 1/2  cups          quick-cooking oats -- uncooked
    1 1/2  cups          salted peanuts -- coarsely chopped
    1      cup           semisweet chocolate chips (6 ounces)
 
 Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add
sugars, beating at medium speed until blended.	Add eggs, one at a
 time, beating just until yellow disappears; stir in vanilla.  Set aside.
  Combine flour and soda; stir into butter mixture, mixing well.  Stir in
 oats and remaining ingredients, mixing well (mixture will be crumbly).	Drop by
teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.  Bake at 350 degrees
 for 10 to 12 minutes.  Let stand 1 minute; remove to wire racks to cool.
