Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

What you have here is the ultimate trifecta of cookie goodness:

Peanut butter? Check.

Oats? Check.

Chocolate Chips? Check.

And there you have it – pretty much the most amazingly flavored cookies you could ever imagine. A great big thank you goes out to Jane, a reader who so kindly sent me this recipe as a thank you for sharing my recipes. She received this recipe from her mom, who found it on the back of a flour bag years ago and they have been a staple in her house ever since. I can certainly see why! As you might imagine, these are fabulous. Soft and tender from the peanut butter, a slight toasted flavor from the oats and just the right amount of sweetness from the chocolate chips. I think you’ll want to go ahead and start preheating your oven before you even read the rest of this post…

Now that you’re ready to get baking, a few notes on the recipe:

♦  I used the shaping method from the Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip cookies. Gives cookies a nice crinkly look on top!

♦  If you’re addicted to weighing when you bake like I am, note that each ball of dough weighed 1.7 ounces.

♦  The cookies will not look “done” when you pull them out of the oven, but they will continue to bake on the hot baking sheets out of the oven. If they are slightly brown, the edges look just set and they are puffy in the middle they are ready to come out!

Disclaimer: You will not be able to resist eating the dough. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: Makes about 16 cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
½ cup rolled oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

3. On medium speed, cream together the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and beat to combine. On low speed, gradually add the flour until just combined. Stir in the oats, and then the chocolate chips.

4. Use a large cookie scoop (3 tablespoons) and drop dough onto prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden. Cool completely on the baking sheet and then store in an airtight container at room temperature.

    Oh Michelle, You take such pretty pictures! I might add that when I’m totally going all out, I use chocolate chunks in these. Happy baking. I printed off your recipes for the pumpkin scones and quiche lorraine scones this morning. Can’t wait to try them.

  6. Erin on February 24, 2010 at 7:50 am

    I agree, that’s one of the best combinations! These are a must-try for sure!

    Oh my goodness! Every recipe you post looks to-die-for and every recipe I’ve made so far lives up to it.

    I will definitely make these for a bake sale (the soft & chewy choc chip cookies were a HUGE hit at my office).

    Wow, those look divine! I love the texture of oats in cookies! Yummy!


  14. jaclyn@todayslady on February 24, 2010 at 10:05 am

    Peanut butter, oats, and chocolate in a cookie = heaven!! I love the shaping method that you used to get the crinkly top. I’ll have to make these and send some to friends and family to prevent me from devouring them all!! As for family recipes, my grandma uses an oatmeal raisin cookie recipe that is my favorite. I have no idea where the recipe came from but its different than any other oatmeal cookie recipe I’ve ever tried.


    • Becca on April 20th, 2011 at 10:52 am

      jaclyn, this post was a while ago, but I’d love to make your grandma’s oatmeal raisin cookie. These are our favorites and I’d love to try them! Can you post the recipe, please?

      These peanut butter-oat-chip cookies look delicious, too!

    Mmm nice cookies, I love the second photo with them all stacked up.


  16. TammyJo Eckhart, PhD on February 24, 2010 at 10:47 am

    Looks yummy. I might even get the Milk Chocolate Acolyte to eat these since he’s so fond of peanut butter but hates baking chips… he’s strange.

    These cookies may make me break my Lenton promise of no white flour!! I have to try that method to make the cookies look crumbly on top. What a great trick!

  25. Lisa @ The Cooking Bride on February 24, 2010 at 11:42 pm

    I needed this recipe about a month ago. I wanted to make cookies, but didn’t want to run to the store. I had the ingredients on hand to make either peanut butter or oatmeal cookies. My husband asked if we could have both, so I mixed together two recipes I had. They tasted like dog biscuits. I”m sure yours will be much yummier.


  26. ZJM on February 25, 2010 at 4:58 am

    Thank you for this! Stumbledupon it tonight and it saved my butt!! Needed to make cookies, had not enough ingredients for my favorites. Turned out perfect. Glad to find your blog, will keep coming back for more. (Already see the Onion Ring recipe…)


  27. Talita Gomes on February 25, 2010 at 6:26 am

    These look kinda perfect! What a yummilicious crust!


  28. Lauren on February 25, 2010 at 9:00 am

    Those look absolutely amazing and have 3 of my favorite ingredients…peanut butter, chocolate and oatmeal! Can’t wait to try the recipe!


  29. Jelli on February 25, 2010 at 10:59 am

    I gave up sweets for a month to squelch my sweet tooth. It seems that now I’m a peanut butter addict. These cookies look like the perfect end to my sugar-free days…only about 15 days away now. Absolutely fantastic. I can’t wait to try these.


  30. Nicole on February 25, 2010 at 11:09 am

    OMG I made these cookies last night and they were fantastic!!!! Great recipe! I only had chunky peanut butter and I think it added yet another dimension to the cookie and my husband and I could not stop eating them! Thanks for another great cookie recipe!


  31. Laura on February 25, 2010 at 1:13 pm

    OH my gosh those look amazing. And with the oats in them you could pretend they’re healthier 😉


  32. Karen on February 25, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    My daughters don’t like oatmeal. My husband is not fond of peanut butter. I’m making these cookies tomorrow. Go on, ask me why.

    No competition! They are gonna be alllllllll mine!


  33. Allison Raines on February 25, 2010 at 5:03 pm

    Oooo! These look just delectable! How could a cookie go wrong with pb, oats and choco chips?! Can’t wait to try them. They look so perfectly browned in your pictures!


  34. Kim on February 25, 2010 at 6:23 pm

    Perfection. I made these today for a pitch in at work.


  35. Jenny on February 25, 2010 at 7:20 pm

    Oh man these are exactly what I’m looking for! Thanks! I’m going to make them right now


  36. CaseyW on February 25, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    I just made these. My husband’s not a big fan of peanut butter cookies, but he loved these! They have almost a no-baked cookie flavor – sooooo good!

    I needed to bake them a little longer than the 10 minutes, though – my oven runs about 50 degrees too hot, and even with the oven thermometer, it’s hard to get a good, even temp in there.

    Another wonderful recipe!


  37. Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction on February 25, 2010 at 11:48 pm

    I love oatmeal cookies… Something about them always reminds me of my mom because she always made them for us as kids. loving the peanut butter and chocolate, too. Perfect!


  38. Baking is my Zen on February 26, 2010 at 11:27 am

    It looks great. Good combo of flavors. My fav is chewy…all the way.

    these came out great!! love it…


  40. Krista on February 27, 2010 at 10:42 am

    OH MY these were too good to be true!! I made them exactly as you said, although I thought the 3tbsps of batter per cookie was going to be too much, it soo wasn’t and it made them nice and thick in the middle, and the perfect texture!
    These were beyond a huge hit in my house and are now going to be our go to cookie recipe! thank you so much and I love love your blog!

    ps: your right, the dough was too good to resist! lol

    Man these were really good! So soft!!


  42. Barb on February 28, 2010 at 5:36 pm

    These are now my new favorite cookie. I made these over the weekend and had to bring some into work, so I didn’t eat them all..though I did set a few aside for just myself


  43. Megan on March 1, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    These look delicious-they look so moist and gooey! Cookies are best when they come right out of the oven 🙂 I am a total peanut butter + chocolate addict so you can bet I’ll be making these very soon!


  44. kristina on March 2, 2010 at 4:17 am

    so yummy and moist!! these are great cookies..i will definitely make them over and over again 🙂


  45. Amy on March 2, 2010 at 8:19 am

    I TRIPLED this recipe the first time i made them! It wasn’t a mistake, they were gone in 24 hours. I passed them out to family and hubby, kids, and myself finished the rest! The best cookie recipe i have ever had. Thanks so much for the fantastic recipe!


  46. Joan on March 2, 2010 at 8:27 pm

    This recipe is out of this world! I used chocolate chunks. This recipe is replacing my other pb cookies recipe. Thanks for sharing!


  47. Danielle on March 3, 2010 at 8:04 pm

    Sounds like all of my favorite cookies rolled up into one!
    Can’t wait to try it out!


  48. Pam on March 4, 2010 at 3:47 pm

    I’ve been looking for days for a different peanut butter cookie recipe. I have a standard one, which I enjoy, but I’ve been wanting to try something different, and nothing was really impressing me. I’ve been craving peanut butter cookies for awhile and then I saw these! Since I’m also a chocolate addict, and my husbands two favorite cookies are oatmeal and peanut butter, I have a feeling this will be a huge success in our household!

    I’m trying them tomorrow!


  49. Amanda on March 5, 2010 at 2:29 pm

    I just took these cookies out of the oven and sampled a small one, HELLO delicious! I think my neighbor is going to be happy she invited me over today for tea!


  50. Christine on March 5, 2010 at 2:41 pm

    I just made these and WOW! They were so delicious. I substituted whole wheat flour for regular flour and they still turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!


  51. Liz@HoosierHomemade on March 5, 2010 at 10:58 pm

    These cookies look amazing! I was just thinking this morning while eating my oatmeal that I put a spoon full of peanut butter in, that they would make a great cookie.
    I can’t believe I haven’t found you yet. Ugh, Blogland is so big.
    I found you thru RecipeSoup, BTW.
    Thanks for the great recipe!


  52. Lyss on March 6, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    The cookies are in the oven right now. You were right about resisting the dough temptation…
    I love that these combine my 2 favorite cookies: oatmeal choc chip and peanut butter. The peanut butter flavor isn’t too intense and the oats give it a more interesting texture…and fiber so they’re great for you, right?
    My only problem is that this recipe doesn’t make a whole lot of dough, will definitely double it next time!


  53. Meg on March 9, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    I just made these and they are delicious. The oats are not obvious flavor wise but I am sure they added to the texture. The dough tasted just like Nutter-Butters! Mine took almost 15 minutes to bake and were definitely still underbaked before cooling (which is what I wanted) so they came out soft and chewy when cooled.


  54. Matt on March 12, 2010 at 7:54 pm

    Amazing cookies! Just made these for my friends up at school. We all loved ’em.


  55. Kirsten on March 14, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    Just finished making a double batch of these cookies tonight and they are fantastic! I had to kick up the temp 5 degrees and add about 3 minutes to the baking time but they were perfect! And you’re right they don’t look “done” but they finished just right. Thanks for the great new recipe! My husband loves them, says he needs a full glass of milk to eat just one. That’s a compliment!


  56. Kaitlin on March 15, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    Holy deliciousness! Just took these out of the oven and yum!! Doubt they’ll last long around here!


  57. Elizabeth on March 21, 2010 at 6:25 pm

  58. Jamie on April 8, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    Sooo chewy and flavorful! I made these this morning and they are almost gone! I will definitely make these again!


  59. Samantha on April 30, 2010 at 7:43 pm

    Super recipe! The dough was fantastic! Made them with a group of friends and they never actually made it to the oven… next time!


  60. Samantha on May 18, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    Made these again today (they did make it to the oven this time!). Wow! How delicious!!! I used the crinkle effect, too. I’ll definitely be using that on all my cookies from now on 🙂

I have just taken these cookies out of the oven and WOW, they are an amazing combination. Congrats on the awesome website, keep up the great work!


  69. Kristi on August 8, 2010 at 6:23 pm

    I made these cookies tonight and they turned out great. Only problem I had was the dough turned out really crumbly? What did I do wrong? I added some egg whites to the dough and it fixed my problem, but what caused the dough to be crumbly in the first place? I followed the directions exactly. Any advice?


  70. jenn on August 10, 2010 at 2:52 am

    i made these just this morning… except I vegan-ized them! and they came out great! crispy and chewy, and beautifully golden… DELISH! thanks for sharing again the tip on shaping the dough so it gets that really beautiful texture on the cookie.


    • kate on October 16th, 2010 at 11:15 pm

      how did you vegan-ize them? a friend of mine is vegan and i think he would enjoy these!


      • Stephanie on December 9th, 2012 at 12:40 pm

        You can veganize them with a flax seed egg – the best egg replacer I’ve found. It’s 1 Tbsp ground flax seed (you can grind it fine yourself or buy a bag of flax meal) to 3 Tbsp water per egg. Works great!!! and these cookies are the tops

  81. Kate on October 10, 2010 at 12:14 am

    This is a great recipe! I wanted to make a healthy low glycemic version and it totally worked. I substituted both the white and brown sugar for palm sugar and substituted half the flour for almond flour but kept the other half white flour. Almond flour really needs to be combined with other flours to work well. If you have never fooled around in the kitchen with palm sugar ( low glycemic and totally natural) and almond flour ( full of nutrients and protein) I highly suggest it. This recipe works nicely as does many others. Thanks!

    We went to a 4th of July potluck at the beach this summer and someone brought the most amazing, home made chocolate chip cookies I had EVER tasted. They had peanut butter and oats. Alas, she would not give out the recipe!! I’ve searched once before for something similar and was about to wing it on my own (based on your recipe, I can see I would have been close) and then made one last ditch attempt to search online again today and found this. Voila! This MUST be them!! Butter is sitting on counter right now, waiting to get to room temperature! 🙂

    Did a google search for chocolate chip peanut butter cookies, and yours popped up. Made a vegan version of this (vegan margarine/egg replacer) for a vegan birthday request at work. They turned out fabulous, and the bonus was finding your blog. I have a feeling I’ll be visiting often–thanks!

  105. Jill on December 23, 2010 at 7:59 am

    I made these last night and followed the recipe exactly and they turned out awesome!! So chewy and delicious….one question though. Both my boyfriend and I thought it could use a little more oatmeal, could I add more and leave the rest of the ingredients as is, or should I add more liquid somewhere?


    • Michelle on February 16th, 2011 at 9:57 pm

      Jill – I think you could add a little more and leave the rest of the quantities okay, maybe decrease the chips a bit to make up for the extra heft.


    • Megan on May 10th, 2012 at 8:30 pm

      We left out the egg, didn’t replace it with anything, added extra oats, and they turned out fine! The batter was quite wet to start with, so all was well.

Oh my…fresh out of the oven with a cold glass of milk! HELLO! Mommy like! I pointed my sister to the website….she made them, and instead of milk chocolate chips like I use, she went with half semi sweet, half chopped up reeses p.b. cups! num-num-num!


  108. ahnkadragon on December 31, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    Just followed the link from the Bankingdom blog. So glad I did! Just finished baking these cookies and they are the awesome!! Decided not to bake all of the batter at once. Good thing I didn’t because I would have eaten every single one of these delicious cookies. Only had mini chocolate chips on hand but that doesn’t seem to have had an adverse effect. Love these and will be making them again. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Looking forward to exploring the rest of your site for more great recipes=)

    OMG! I made these for a church class tomorrow night… they are SO DELICIOUS!!! I made them a little smaller so they’d go a little further… ended up with 54 cookies when I doubled the recipe. AND!

    I just made these TWO nights in a row. My boyfriend barely eats desserts or cookies and he loved them last night. I took the rest of the batch to work today so I wouldn’t eat them all and all my co workers loved them. Tonight I was tempted to make them again, and my boyfriend said “yeah make them, and I can take the rest to work tomorrow.” I’ve NEVER seen him ask for cookies!! HUGE HIT 🙂

  117. Misaki on January 17, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    Hello! Thank you so much for providing these recipes! I looked at this one, and I immediately wanted to try it out. I did, and the taste was wonderful! However, I didn’t understand the shaping method for the cookies. Could you explain? I did read it on the other recipe, but I was a bit confused… xD
    As for how your cookies look, all round and perfect, mine came out flat and without that toasty look. What do you recommend to do? Would adding oats help?
    Once again, thank you so much!


    • Michelle on February 15th, 2011 at 9:24 pm

      Hi Misaki, I wouldn’t add any more oats, as they are already in the recipe. To shape, basically roll the dough into ball, then pull it apart in half (so the jagged edges are facing each other), then turn those halves up (so the jagged edges are now facing up), then press them together (side by side) to make them round again, with the jagged edges on top. Hope that explanation helps!


  118. Keyron on January 21, 2011 at 9:49 pm

    OMG………..these are perfect! I love chewy cookies so when I found your recipe I had to try them right away and all I can say is Oh My God.

  124. Ann Baker on February 2, 2011 at 10:41 am

    These are quite possibly the best cookies I ever made. And considering I have been cooking for decades and went to culinary school…that’s saying a LOT! Made these yesterday as 2 feet of snow and 60 mph winds descended upon Chicago.

    Question for BEB – Can I substitute KAF’s White Whole Wheat flour for the all-purpose flour?


    • Michelle on February 14th, 2011 at 9:33 pm

      Hi Ann, I definitely think you could substitute KAF white whole wheat. I have used it in brownies and couldn’t tell a difference!


  125. Denise on February 2, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    Just made these cookies today and oh my. I have been snowed in for a few days now, and a while back was thinking about cookies but didnt want just regular chocolate chip cookies which I love or just peanut butter cookies which i also love and was actually thinking how good peanut butter and oatmeal cookies would be. have to say have never had any till now or don’t think i have ever seen a recipe for them so after being snowed in got to searching online for a recipe, looked at several and then came across these and decided they were they ones i was going to try.. All I can say is WONDERFUL.. I did though add some chopped almonds to mine and they were superb. I don’t think I will be making just regular chocolate chip cookies anymore.. love love these cookies and thank you Browneyed baker for sharing your recipes.. I have also bookmarked a few other recipes that i hope to soon try. including your peanut butter and chocolate cheesecake.. like you i am a sucker for peanut butter and chocolate and for cheesecake and to combine the two.. oh my i can’t wait to try it.. and if i had the ingredients i would probably make it already.. but since i cant even get out my driveway right now will have to wait

I did find I needed to bake mine 12 min. and almost waited til they were completely cool to try them! Just perfect! Can’t wait for some of our guests, who will be arriving shortly, to try them and get their feedback. This will definitely go into our regular rotation for afternoon refreshments at our B&B!

  138. katie on March 8, 2011 at 6:05 pm

    I made these tonight and was excited to try them for Fat Tuesday to get in a treat before I (try) to refrain from sugar for a bit. But in my excitement I neglected to realize I didn’t have eggs since we ate them all this morning! I had already creamed the sugar and butter and added the pb and vanilla when I realized this little detail. I added 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce and when all mixed it seemed a bit runny so I added 2 more tbs of flour and 1/4 cup extra oats. I also only had mini chocolate chips, but that just makes for a little chocolate in each and every bite. This dough- whoa. It might be my most favorite cookie dough EVER and since I didn’t use raw egg (like that bothers me lol) it was totally safe too. The cook time was funny- I did 6 cookies for 12 minutes, but they really didn’t look done at all, so I gave them 1 more then pulled them since you warned that they won’t look done. I ate one after cooling about 5ish minutes and it was super tasty, but kinda fell apart. I don’t know if it was undercooked or the lack of egg but either way they are delicious. I will definitely make again when I have a need for a great cookie!

    Made another batch, and once again got rave reviews as well as requests for more. This recipe is a “keeper-classic”, no doubt about it. I use chunky PB for the added texture and “quick oats” so my grandson doesn’t wrinkle his nose at the sight of whole oats. :p

    Wow – these were just what I needed today. I didn’t have much oats left and the thought of oats-peanut butter-choco chips together sounded great. I am new to the idea of letting the cookie cool on the cookie sheet – my oven is very small so I speed bake by removing the parchment paper as soon as they come out and slipping a newly made one on & back in the oven. The texture on these were like nothing I’ve ever made. Delicate crunch of a peanut butter cookie with the added dimension of the oats. I used mini-chips at 1/2 the quantity and they turned out fantastic.

    Wow! Just discovered this recipe (and your website) today and the first batch is already in my cookie jar. I’ve been searching and experimenting for quite some time to come up with the perfect peanut butter/oatmeal/chocolate chip cookie recipe, and…the search is now over! These cookies bake up beautifully and they are absolutely delicious. Can’t wait for my husband to try them. Also can’t wait to check out the rest of your website. Thank you, thank you!

    I made these yesterday. They didn’t really spread or brown as they baked and seemed a bit dry after they cooled, maybe because I subbed shortening (I can’t do dairy) for butter? The flavor was really good though.


    • Michelle on October 22nd, 2011 at 1:42 pm

      Hi Michelle, Using the margarine is most likely the reason for what you experienced. It has different properties than butter, and one of them is that it helps baked goods to hold their shape and NOT spread (it is often used in place of butter in cut-out cookies for that exact reason). I think that’s your culprit!

      Hi Bex, That could be possible, I haven’t tried this recipe with low-fat peanut butter.

    I made these last night, and they were so easy and I LOVE the texture of them. It’s a dense little cookie, but soooo delicous. Only thing is that I used milk chocolate chips (I made them because I was trying to get rid of 3/4 of a bag I used for something else), and I think I would definately use the semisweet called for the recipe. YUM YUM! Just like the picture, too.


  214. Yasmine on December 12, 2011 at 9:18 pm

  215. Eliza on December 15, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    I just made these and while they are REALLY good, I dont think they’re peanut butter-y enough. Hopefully the flavor will develop more over time… if they last that long 😉

    I loved the way these cookies looked in the picture and fell in cookie like. So I made them, with just one substitution. Instead of chocolate chips, I used three one ounce squares of Bakers unsweetened chocolate roughly chopped, they really came out great! And, this is a kid baker friendly receipe. I made it with my three year old grandaughter and we both had a ball, simple easy and delicious, just they way we like it.

    Hello! Found your blog through Pinterest and literally spent a couple of hours looking through your site! There are sooooooooooooo many wonderful looking recipes and treats on your blog – it as tough picking which one I would make first. Well – it was these cookies (it was a long, tough debate, but I am a peanut butter & chocolate lover myself!) and I am certainly NOT disappointed! They look like a professional made them! YUMMY! I did have to cook them for 14 minutes or so in order to get the right amount of done-ness – but I can’t stop eating them! Anyways – another bit of advice for anyone else who attempts these cookies…double the recipe! You will be sorry if you don’t! Now – to figure out what to make next!

    Just wanted to say thanks!

Made this cookie and have been making them at least once a month since February, I made them all through Mardi Gras and carried them to every parade for a quick snack and pick me up.

    Those 3 ingredients all go well together! However, I find this recipe too buttery, and too sweet. I like to taste the salt in my peanut butter cookies and I like lots of oats in my chocolate chip cookies. I would cut down the butter and sugar and add more oats. Or, just make a batch of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and a batch of peanut butter cookies and serve on the same plate!


  256. Nikki Fox on May 10, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    I made these last week and they were great! The only thing I would change is the type of oats I used. For some reason I bought quick oats instead of the old fashion kind. I would have liked to have larger oats in my cookie but you won’t get this using quick oats since they are smaller.


  262. Sue on June 6, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    I was looking for a peanut butter/oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe and I found this. Thank heavens I did! I made these today and I am in love. I live in hot, humid Mexico and it is tough sometimes to find a cookie that can withstand this climate. These hold up magnificently.

    I didn’t bother with the “jagged top” method. Instead, I pressed them slightly with a drinking glass dipped in sugar, and then I sprinkled just the tiniest bit of sea salt on top. I will be making these cookies again and again. Thank you so much!!!!

    Great recipe- a nice twist on traditional chocolate chip cookies. We loved the addition of the oatmeal too. I made a few changes including that I used a heaping cup of flour instead of an exact cup. I also increased the salt to about 1/2 tsp. Instead of making huge cookies I used a 1 1/2 inch cookie scoop and got about 3 dozen normal sized cookies. Instead of using parchment paper I just used ungreased cookie sheets. Taking the cookies off were a breeze and I just gave the sheets a quick wipe with a damp paper towel and they were ready to store. Loved these cookies- Yum!

    Divine deliciousness!!! I’m not a professional baker, but I sure felt like one after making my first batch of these fantastic cookies!! I have followed this recipe exactly a few times, but the last batch I made it with fresh almond butter (since we were out of peanut butter) and the results were PHENOMENAL!!! We had guests that said that these were some of the best cookies they have had in years. Definitely a family favorite that will be a staple in our kitchen.

    Well a true testament to the deliciousness of these cookies; I made these this morning, forgot the eggs, and they still tasted delicious. A wee bit dry and crumbly, but nothing a tall glass of milk can’t save! On a side note, I use half whole wheat and porridge oats (which contain wheat bran, oat bran, and flax seeds) just to make myself feel a little “healthier” 😉


  281. Amy on August 30, 2012 at 9:53 pm

      Amy, I added an extra egg to the recipe one of the times I baked these and I noticed they were more deliciously moist. You could definitely play with the recipe and adjust it to your preference.

    I was wondering if you could tell me the difference between rolled oats and old fashioned rolled oats. When should I NOT substitute quick oats for “rolled oats”? Are they the same thing? I am at a total loss when it comes to knowing when I can use quick oats and the difference between “old fashioned rolled oats” and “rolled oats”

    thanks! Can’t wait to make these guys!

      Hi Rachael, Rolled oats and old-fashioned rolled oats are one in the same. The only difference is when you talk about quick oats, which are a finer cut. You typically do not want to substitute one for the other when a specific one is called for in a recipe, as it will change the texture in the final product. Quick oats will absorb moisture much more readily than old-fashioned rolled oats. I hope that helps!

    I found that 16 oz of chocolate chips was too much by half. Otherwise these cookies are great!

    These bad boys are perfect! My most used cookie recipe. I’ve made them at least a dozen times now. Typically I make a double batch because my family eats them up quicker than I can pull them out of the oven. The best cookie recipe ever! Thanks.

    This is the BEST cookie recipe ever!! I have been making it for almost 2 years now and have yet to find another one that even comes close. I made many of the other chocolate chip cookie recipes on this site and the others are usually a little too sweet for my taste, but this one is the perfect trifecta of all my favorite things: peanut butter, oats, and chocolate! This one will be a lifetime favorite!


  342. Anna on August 11, 2014 at 1:43 pm

    I know this is one of your older recipes – looks like the last comment was back in 2010 – but I LOVE it. The recipe is great for my little toddlers (I have THREE of them!) because it is full of protein, has a little bit of fiber, and is a cookie! I swap half the chocolate for pecans or walnuts and half the flour for whole wheat flour just to make them a little more healthy.


  343. Ariane on August 11, 2014 at 6:48 pm

    I thought the cookies were a bit too high; too thick. Should I flattened them a bit before baking? It took about 20 minutes to bake these in my oven. Next time I will add less chocolate chips because I wanted more of a peanut butter taste. They are delish!

    Thank you so much for this recipe! My family’s new favorite! You Rock!

    I love these cookies. The are so simple to make and lets face it…they taste amazing. However i am not a huge fan of chocolate chips so the only thing ive changed it’s that i only add a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (i like the mini ones) and then i add a 1/2 of peanut better chips. These cookies are perfect!


  346. Laura on November 13, 2014 at 10:15 am

    These came out great! New favorite cookie! I didn’t use a cookie scoop and the shape was still perfect. I only wish it made more cookies. I want to bring them to a party, but it made less cookies than a normal batch of chocolate chip cookies. I may need to try doubling the recipe next time.


  347. Asia on January 15, 2015 at 4:20 am

    Omg, I love this recipe. Just made a fresh batch and have made them for the fam multiple times. So good

    These look yummy! Do you bake one sheet at a time or two sheets at once and rotate halfway? Thanks!


    • Michelle on May 1st, 2015 at 10:24 pm

      I typically do one at a time. Enjoy the cookies!

    I literally just finished cooling these cookies! Of course I snatched one and they are good! The only things I did differently were:
    #1……I made them about half the size so they would “last longer.” My son in law loves ANYTHING with peanut butter in them (they are visiting!) so I wanted the other three of us to get some!!
    #2…….I added about 3/4 cup of salted peanuts (I adjusted the quantity of salt in the recipe) to added more texture and another dimension of peanut flavor!
    Love, love your site!! :0)

    Hi! Do you think you can make the dough one day ahead? Refrigerate maybe?


    • Michelle on August 27th, 2015 at 7:00 pm

      Hi Carolina, Yes, I think that would be okay!


  356. Jodie on October 9, 2015 at 6:33 pm

    In my house I prefer oatmeal and peanut cookies. My husband and boys prefer chocolate chip cookies. So this recipe was the perfect find for me. Baked these today for my boy’s when they came home from school. They are delicious! Great texture, moisture and slight crunch. I used a large cookie scoop and scooped them on the cookies tray. Baked for 8 minutes, then used the outer round part of the scoop to flatten some(removed the domed appearance) and baked for the remaining 2 minutes. They were perfectly crackly and slightly brown around the edges. If I had the ability, I would have posted a pic. Thank you Brown Eyed Baker for sharing this recipe of cookie perfection.
