Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are my go-to for when I need lots of dessert.  This recipe makes 4 to 5 dozen cookies, depending on the size you make them. They have just the right balance between peanut butter and chocolate, and they are keep great in a sealed container in the cupboard or the freezer. They’re also really gooey coming out of the oven!


What You’ll Need:

1 cup butter (or oil)

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup white sugar

1 cup peanut butter

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 Tablespoon vinegar

2 cup oatmeal

1½ cup flour

1½ cup (or more to taste 🙂 ) chocolate chips



What To Do:

  1. Cream together the butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and peanut butter. Add the eggs and vanilla.
  2. Mix together the baking soda and vinegar. It will bubble! Add to mixture.
  3. Blend in the oatmeal, flour, and chocolate chips.
  4. Spoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet. (I use a Tablespoon). Bake at 350oF for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Let cool on the pan for about 5 minutes. Then move to finish cooling on a rack or paper towel.
