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…

Notes on the Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • I used the shaping method from the Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip cookies. Gives cookies a nice crinkly look on top!
  • The cookies will not look “done” when you pull them out of the oven, but they will continue to cook 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!

If you tend to be a dough nibbler, then be forewarned… you will absolutely, positively not be able to resist sneaking tastes of this dough. It’s TO DIE FOR.
