In a small mixing bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in Grape-Nuts.

Looks yummy! I've never used grape nuts before, but I bet they add a nice crunch. Definitely a must-try
