Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are a soft, sweet cookie filled with oats, peanut butter flavor and chocolate chunks. There isn’t a better cookie combination out there!
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies bring you the delicious savoriness of a peanut butter cookie with the chewiness of an oatmeal cookie with the fun surprise of delicious chocolate chunks giving you that added sweetness you didn’t know you wanted.
Peanut butter cookies and oatmeal cookies are two traditional cookies that are good on their own, but when you pair them together, it’s an amazing combination that has you wondering why you didn’t pair them sooner. If you’re a fan of soft and chewy cookies (who isn’t?) and the wonderful flavors of peanut butter, you are going to love these peanut butter oatmeal cookies. Use your favorite peanut butter and choose creamy or chunky to create a cookie that’s more unique to your tastebuds. Plus, chocolate always just makes everything better!
If you think these cookies are good, you should try the edible cookie dough version. There’s no baking involved, and it’s safe to eat straight from the bowl!
What’s In These Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies?
- Butter, salted
- Peanut butter (creamy or chunky, you choose!!)
- Granulated sugar
- Brown sugar
- All- Purpose Flour
- Old fashioned oats
- Baking soda
- Chocolate chunks
It is important to note using old fashioned oats in this recipe rather than quick oats. They bake differently and the cookies may not be a success if quick oats are used.
How to make these chewy peanut butter oatmeal cookies
Preheat oven your oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugars until they’re light and fluffy. Light and fluffy is referring to the color and texture.
Add in the eggs and the vanilla mixing until just combined. Add in the flour, old fashioned oats, salt, and baking soda and then mix until the cookie dough forms (it will be slightly sticky). Then it is time to fold in the chocolate chunks.
Scoop into large balls that are approx 3 tbsp worth of dough. Arrange the dough balls on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 9-11 minutes, making sure to take them out when they are just barely starting to turn golden brown.
Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
How long are homemade cookies good for?
Homemade cookies can survive for up to 5 days just fine when placed in a Zip top bag and stored at room temperature. They may become staler as time presses on, so it’s always best to eat cookies when they are most fresh for the best tasting results!
How to keep homemade cookies fresh longer?
For longer-term storage, you’ll want to place your cookies in the freezer to stay nice and fresh. Allow the cookies to come to room temperature for approximately 30 minutes prior to eating.
