Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Wholesome oats and yummy peanut butter combine to make one delicious cookie.

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup chocolate chips or raisins

Cream butter and peanut butter. Add sugar, egg and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Add flour and baking soda; mix. Add oats and choclate chips; mix. Roll spoonfuls of dough into balls and flatten with a fork. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350F.

I am a sucker for peanut butter and chocolate, so of course I chose chocolate chips over raisins. You’ll notice most of my cookie recipes have chocolate chips in them and it’s because I’m a chocoholic. I can’t help it! My mom used to make these cookies when we were little so I know them well. I hadn’t made them in ages, and when I had a playdate to go to I decided it was a good time to bake them again. I brought them along and they were quickly devoured.  The two cookies in the photo above were the only ones that made it back! Thank goodness, because you know I would have eaten the entire batch by myself.

    I have been searching Kraft for a chocolate chip, peanut butter OATMEAL cookie, and only a few grabbed my interest, but I felt like the ingredient lists were to long or something 😉 thanks for posting this! I finally made them…baking right now and I’m eating my 2nd one already, so good. I use natural peanut butter and quick oats, otherwise the exact same ingredients…uhm maybe a few extra chocolate chips heheee

    Hey Meg

    I was searching for these in “cookies” and thought I was going crazy, since I couldn’t find them, and swore you had the best chocolate chip, peanut butter oatmeal cookie recipe! Thanks to the search I found it. Just wanted to say you should add a cookies tag to it 😉

    …and I should really print off the online recipes I love :)
    off to bake while the monkey is napping!

    Oh my, how could I forget to tag it ‘cookies’? That’s the most important tag, lol! Thanks for pointing that out, I’ve fixed it. Happy baking!

    I just made these and they’re delicious! I think I came out with about 27 but I may have miscounted because they were being eaten almost as soon as they were out of the oven.
