Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
If you are an unabashed fanatic for cookies, you likely have multiple favorites. Chocolate chip, peanut butter, and oatmeal are all popular choices, and these peanut butter-oatmeal chocolate chip cookies combine the best of the best into one fantastic cookie!
What you have here is the ultimate trifecta of cookie goodness:
Peanut butter? 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…
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.

One of the most forgiving cookie 🍪 recipes I’ve ever used! They are a fam fave and of course disappear fast. This recipe is super easy and I usually have these ingredients on hand. Love this one so much!!
Made these and loved them! They were gone in 24 hours. Thank you for the recipe.
The directions was simple to follow and the ingredients were ones I usually have on hand. The cookies turned out perfectly and are delicious. Thanks for a great recipe!
These cookies are my favorite! They’re delicious. Whenever I share them with friends or family they get rave reviews.
I’ve been making this cookie for years! It’s my absolute favorite and everyone who tried it love’s it as well!
My go-to cookies!
All 3 key ingredients are a family favorite, I can’t believe I haven’t made these before tonight! They hit the spot!
These are absolutely delicious! I easily make them vegan with vegan butter and one flax egg! They turn out great every time!
These are the absolute best! So easy and yummy. Definitely my go-to cookie recipe, and EVERYONE loves them!
I LOVE these cookies. My husband likes peanut butter cookies and I like oatmeal, but no matter your favorite, you will love these! I didn’t make cookies the last couple years with little babies, but I looked for the recipe a couple months ago and I couldn’t find it :( I thought they were chocolate chip cookies and saw your other recipe and knew that wasn’t the one. I finally stumbled across this and I remembered they have everything you love in a cookie. Also, my two year and four year never want to lick the beater (I know – what is wrong with them:)) but they brought back the beater and said , “All done. More please.” Thank you!!!
A new family favourite! I added Reese’s pieces to the mix also!!
I just made these. They are amazing!!! Exactly what I was craving. Thanks!
These are great! I added some chopped peanut butter cups to the batter also, as my family can’t get enough peanut butter and chocolate! I also made them smaller and adjusted the baking time. So good…added this recipe to my to my recipe collection.
These are a go-to for making cookies in my home! My family LOVES them! I keep the recipe bookmarked in my phone.
The cookies were great, the dough is amazing. Might add a touch more oats next time, but seriously, these are fab as is. Happy baking :)
Made these last night! Switched the peanut butter out for almond butter and they were fabulous!
Made these tonight! Omg thank you, seriously sooo
Good , quick, easy and delicious!! I will use this one over and over again !
I made these for the second time today. My family got so excited. I had no idea that they loved them so much. The taste is amazing. I love the crunchy outer layer and soft inside. It’s a scrumptious cookie. Thanks Michelle for a great cookie!
This is my all time fave..I use crunchy peanutbutter and a smaller scoop, at 8000 ft, cookies work better for me like that. Yes, I eat the dough!
This recipe has become a favourite of my entire family! I started putting them in the freezer immediately after they cool to deter hungry snackers from gobbling them all up, but alas now my family prefers them right out of the freezer. Go figure! I don’t bother making any less than a double batch every time I make these. Thank you for this and all your delicious recipes!! :)
Do you have to use unsalted butter ?.??..
Hi Marietta, No you can use salted, but omit the salt in the recipe.
I just made these for my husband. He like peanut butter and chocolate chips but is not that fond of oatmeal cookies – until now. These were a great hit. I will make these again. 16 cookies wouldn’t have been enough, so I doubled it. They turned out great. You are right about the dough. I couldn’t stop nibbling. Thank you for sharing.
I lived overseas for four years and my roommate introduced me to this recipe. I swear they are the perfect cure for homesickness. When I moved back to the states, I made these cookies for a guy I liked at my work place. We’re married now, and he says these cookies were the start of our romance :) In short, these cookies can change your life. I follow the recipe exactly and use creamy natural peanut butter.
Awww I love this!
This recipe is fantastic. I followed it exactly. Recipe did not specify but I used natural peanut butter. I doubled recipe and got 20 large cookies after whatever dough eating went on (using suggested 3 TBLS ice cream scooper) The dough is ridiculously good. My son is in his 1st year away at college and these have already been sent twice. Our new family favorite. Thanks so much!
Yep, the batter is almost too good to stop! Thank goodness we had enough restraint because these cookies are our new favorite! I added some chopped peanuts, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Perfect! Thanks so much!
These were a huge hit! I think they could have used a few extra tbsp of flour, but they were perfect other than that.
Epic – soft, thick and delicious
I had been meaning to bake these for weeks. And after hearing about Anthony Bourdain’s passing, I was sad and decided that life is short and I should bake these cookies. Wow! So good! It took a few rounds to figure out how much batter with the twist method. I used crunchy peanut butter that I bought by mistake and it works BUT I would use all natural peanut butter instead of Peter Pan when I make these again. I don’t like overly sweet things and I think sweetened peanut butter puts it a bit over the top but I’m sure most people would like it with sweetened peanut butter. This is an amazing recipe and definitely worth making again. Thanks!
These cookies look so good! I love chocolate and peanut butter together!
Made these for a Thanksgiving potluck at work. Fabulous flavor, texture, and appearance. Highly recommend using the shaping method mentioned. Super delish!
I have been baking these cookies for 5-6 years now… A few times a year at my mom’s request. I’ve tweaked the recipe by cutting half the butter and replacing with apple sauce. The addition of apple sauce gives these already yummy cookies a softer texture. I play with the flour and replace half the white flour with whole wheat. Thanks for posting this recipe over 7 years ago!! It’s always a crowd pleaser.
Help! I’m looking for a recipe that I made once before and now cannot find in my digital recipe file. I thought the recipe came from your blog but I’m not finding it now. The recipe is for Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies. I remember in the recipe that part of the oatmeal is ground and part isn’t, it included peanut butter (I used crunchy), chocolate chips AND it included grated chocolate too. It was sort of a peanut butter $250 Nieman Marcus cookie. Do you have a recipe like this or am I loosing my mind?
Hi Karen, Oh my that sounds delicious! But I’m so sorry that it’s not a recipe I’ve made :( it must be from another site.
They are incredible. Followed the recipe to a “t.” Best cookie ever!
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.
Hi! Do you think you can make the dough one day ahead? Refrigerate maybe?
Hi Carolina, Yes, I think that would be okay!
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)
Delicious, didn’t change a thing.
These look yummy! Do you bake one sheet at a time or two sheets at once and rotate halfway? Thanks!
I typically do one at a time. Enjoy the cookies!
Omg, I love this recipe. Just made a fresh batch and have made them for the fam multiple times. So good
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.
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!
Thank you so much for this recipe! My family’s new favorite! You Rock!
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!
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.
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!
These cookies turned out FANTASTIC! Followed this simple recipe and they are perfect!! Definitely keeping this recipe handy, thanks for posting! :)
thank you, brown eye.
I was searching for the perfect peanut butter choco chip oatmeal cookies, and viola! It was in one of your posts. I’ve been reading your recipes and have been trying most of it already, and will continue to support your blog. I love each recipe you’ve shared. Thank you so much for these heavenly recipes. More power to you and God bless! Salamat!
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.
I found that 16 oz of chocolate chips was too much by half. Otherwise these cookies are great!
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!
These are the most amazing cookies. I have been on the hunt for the perfect cookie( choc chip).My husband will only want these and said the hunt is over….thanks for a great recipe
THESE ARE DELICIOUS :) I use a small scoop and make about 40 decent sized cookies.
wow! These are amazing. Not to much oatmeal, nor to much peanut butter. I came downstairs after putting my kids to bed to find my husband with cookies and milk. He stops shoveling them for a moment to say “these cookies are off the charts!” The only downside is it doesn’t make a ton of batter. That’s ok. I plan to make some for the freezer.
Just made these for my husband last night. He said they were the best cookie he had ever had. Huge hit. Thanks! I am going to put them on my blog to share and send people your way!
I just happened upon your blog on Friday night while looking for new cookie recipes, and may I say that these cookies are amazing! I baked several batches and brought 4 dozen to work with me on Sat night. I work on a very busy labor and delivery unit, and that night, not everyone got a break…but everyone got a cookie (or 3!!) All 4 dozen were consumed and I received many rave reviews! Thanks for this wonderful recipe and I look forward to making more of your cookies :-)
These are my mom’s favorite cookies. And she is very picky about her chocolate chip cookies! I have been making these for 3 years now! substitute half the amount of butter for apple sauce, and it makes them nice a chewy! Perfection! Thanks so much for this amazing recipe!
Thanks for the recipe! I made them yesterday and they turned out fantastic! I was a little worried at first because my dough was quite sticky but I resisted the urge to add more flour and I’m glad I did. The shaping method is awesome, I’ll definitely use it on other cookies – love those crinkly tops :)
I followed the recipe exactly – but mine turned out crumbly and sandy, not moist and gooey. What happened? :(
Hi Katie, I’m sorry your cookies didn’t turn out. Unfortunately, it’s virtually impossible for me to know what may have gone wrong. Make sure your oven temperature is correct by using an oven thermometer.
Another DELICIOUS cookie recipe I had to come back and thank you for :)
This might be my new ultimate-favorite-of-all-time cookie recipe. Everything turned out perfectly. The texture and the flavor are phenomenal!
These sound so, so good. Straight to the top of my “Veganizing” to do list!
All three of the ingredients…interesting combination…..and my son’s favorite too… it looks lovely….wanna know if chocolate pieces can be added instead of chocolate chips…will it turn out well…?
Hi Maha, You can chocolate pieces; they might melt a little more in the cookies than chocolate chips would.
Thanks for sharing the recipe. The cookies are perfect with a slight crisp but tender inside :)
I have made these a few times now and they are wonderful! The first time I made them, I had just started dating my now husband and brought some over to his apartment. Pretty sure these are the reason he decided to keep dating me and eventually marry me :)
Aw, I love this! :)
Hi – These are great but I find that the next day they are already dry. I am taking them out of the oven while they’re still somewhat raw, so it must be something in the ingredient mix. Ah well.
These were the best cookies I’ve ever baked. I have to double the batch each and every time I make them. And, you were right the dough itself was down right irresistible.
Made these for the third time tonight – and always incredible! Though one time I made a double batch, and only had half of the oatmeal needed. I made up the difference with almond meal, and were equally great!
I’ve made these three times already and am making a double batch tomorrow. They are incredible, definitely one of my favorite cookies!
best cookies ever.
Is this a mix that can be seperated, and rearranged in the recipe, to be able to make it into a “layered mix in a jar gifts”?? I would really like to do it, I think that it would look great layered, and by the sounds of the reviews, would taste great too.
Denise D. Moran
Hi Denise, You know, I have never done the cookie mix in a jar, so I’m not sure if this recipe would be a fit. If you have any similar jar cookie recipes, I would follow the same procedure.
Oh, shut the front door! I just made these cookies… PERFECTION!
Just made these. They are to DIE FOR.
BEST cookies ever. Sooooo yum. Everything I have made from your blog has so far been amazing- thanks!
I use whole wheat flour for these and the result is awesome.
I made these for my husband’s birthday. He is a huge chocolate chip, oatmeal, and peanut butter fan. He has been loving them! About one a day for the past week. Thank you for sharing! I don’t make cookies often, too much of a temptation (unless than can go to my husband’s office :-) ), so I am glad I tried these. I believe they are his new favorite….he didn’t take any to the office, and that is a good sign!
These look great. I have made chocolate chips cookies with the peanut butter chips in them and we love them. We will try this recipe. Thanks for sharing.
Buy Here Pay Here
OMG!!! Just stumbled onto this today… Made them this afternoon… O M Feakin WOW!!! They are solo good!!! Taste like a cookie you would buy at a bakery!!! Thank You!!! ;)
Hey, late to this party but these are now my most-requested cookies by friends and family AND they are easy to make gluten-free…I sub 2/3 C. potato starch flour for the regular flour, and they have such a delicate, buttery texture it’s crazy. My friends think I’m a genius. This recipe rocks! Thanks for sharing.
Um, did anyone else have a problem with the cookie batter being VERY dry? The oats and chips barely stayed together with the batter???
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.
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” ;)
I made these a little bit ago, and they were super good. I didn’t get that nice golden brown you got on the tops of yours, but they were still great. If you’re interested in checking it out, I referenced your recipe in my blog:
Thanks for sharing such a great chocolate chip cookie recipe!
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. Thank you so much for sharing this fabulous recipe!!
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!
These cookies were flawless – the best I’ve ever made. Thanks for the recipe!
Just came out of the oven and they are amazing! They taste as great as they look. The shaping method was a great idea, I’ve never heard of that before.
Hi! I love your blog so much, some of your recipes made me famous in my dorm freshman year hahaha. You might miss this because of how long ago you posted this recipe, but I was wondering how long these cookies stay? I’m hoping to ship them to some friends. :) Thank you1
Hi LaTricia, Well-wrapped, they should keep for a good 5 days or so at room temperature.
I love this recipe! My husband has given them a nickname, “Epic Cookies”. I’ve even added shredded coconut on occasions! Yum!
OMG these are the best best bestest cookies ever. Baked them and couldn’t stop eating them. Even the hubby loves them (he’s so not into sweets!) told me to stop eating them so I would not finish all up before our friends arrive. I cut the white sugar by 1/2 and use chunky peanut butter.. Nuts, chocolate and oatmeal in every mouthful, melts in the mouth, it’s heavenly! Thanks so much for the recipe, I’m going to swear by your recipes!
OMG these cookies are delicious!! I loved them, ate 3 last night when I made them and it was hard to stop! I love peanut butter and chocolate and this recipe has the perfect combination. I know my boyfriend will love these and be addicted, he loves the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I make. This will definitely be a repeat recipe, thank you for sharing it!
Best cookie ever!! Made with dark chocolate chips and used more oatmeal.
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!!!!
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.
these were awesome!!! thank you!!! I used a bit less sugar, b/c I always tend to do that, but I added in about a cup of mini marshmallows, on a whim, and they were like PB smores!!! So amazing!
I just made these, but with white chocolate chips…so good! Thanks for another great recipe!
Hey I am makeing these cookies right now!!!!
I had to eat a little bit of the dough I can’t wait the ten min.
I’m looking forward to making these with my mom. It will be the first time we’ve made cookies in ten years, and I know these will make the occasion even better.
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!
These were UNREAL. I couldn’t stop eating the cookie dough… I used guittard milk chocolate chips, which made them even better because you got big chunks of chocolate with every bite. By far my favorite cookie recipe.
Hi there – thanks for posting this yummy recipe. I made it & posted about it here, with a link back to your site: http://shereckons.posterous.com/peanut-butter-oatmeal-chocolate-chip-cookies
I just made these cookies yesterday for my husband who is a peanut butter-chocolate fanatic. They were a hit with him and the rest of the family. The flavor was really good. I was looking for a recipe like this and I”m so glad I found it. Thank you!
Just wanted to stop by and say thank you for all your beautiful recipes! My family request these cookies on a regular basis, they always come out with the perfect texture chewy inside crunchy outside just plain Amazing! You Rock!
OMG this is the cookie that just keeps giving. 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. And, I have even tried adding coconut and crunchy peanut butter! They just keep getting better and better, next dried cherries! Yum.
Awesome cookies, just made them. I did use Dark Chocolate dreams peanut butter instead of regular peanut butter and they turned out great! :)
I’ve been reading your blog for a while, but this is the first recipe I’ve tried. Loved it! My cookies didn’t come out as pretty as yours, but they were delicious. I substituted chopped-up peanut butter cups and a dark chocolate bar for the chips (decided to clean out the pantry) and they came out great. :)
How would you recommend turning this recipe into a cookie cake? It’s my roommates birthday this weekend and he loves oatmeal cookies and doesn’t love regular cakes…this would be perfect! Thanks!
Hi Kathryn, I would double the recipe and press it into whatever size pan you plan on using – round is always popular!
These are delicious! Just go ahead and double the recipe, everyone. :)
THIS is the ABSOLUTE BEST cookie dough you will EVER EAT!!!
These are so delicious that after taking my first bite, I almost submitted a comment begging you for the recipe! Wow, wow, wow, wow. Perfect!
I made these a few days ago when my sister and brother-in-law were visiting…they were ALL GONE by the end of the day!! A new favorite recipe!
I actually did double the oats in the recipe and they were great. Soooo delish!! I’m making them, again, today. Might add nuts and leave the oats at 1/2 cup.
Not only did these taste great, but they looked really pretty too. My husband loved them, I knew I should have doubled the batch because I baked them this morning and I only have a few left.
Oh my gosh! These are so dangerous – I’m already on my second one and the chocolate chips haven’t even set back up yet.
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!
Oh my goodness these are hands down the BEST cookies i have ever made. Awesome w lots of chips, ( I actually put in a few more and substiuted wheat flour the last time. I also love you comments on the foods makes me feel as if I can taste it thru the computer. YUMMMMM
I love oatmeal cookies, and peanut butter cookies. This recipe sounds perfect. I gotta try ’em. Should I use regular rolled oats?
You will love these! Yes, regular rolled oats (not the quick kind, the traditional).
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.
These are excellent! Really! The texture and flavor are wonderful!
Just finished making these bad boys. Oh my goodness – a little bit of heaven for sure!! Thank you so much, Michelle, for sharing your brilliantness with the rest of us! I’ve found your site over the past year and made so many delicious recipes and never taken the time to thank you. So thank you, thank you, thank you. You are amazing! My first stop when I’m looking for something to impress. Love your site! Wishing you your best year yet! :)
My family were talking cookies over tamale making this year (I bake masses of cookies over Christmas for gifts) and were were joking about combining three cookies in one. On a lark I decided to look up some recipes and lo and behold, there you were. I can’t wait to get these to my family. They are going to love it!!
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 thought the best cookies I ever made were you thick and chewy chocolate chip cookies….but I think these have just surpassed them! AMAZING!! thank you for all your wonderful recipes!
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.
These look awesome! I’ve added this to my list for holiday baking. I can’t wait to try them.
I just made these tonight for a friend. They are the best cookies ever! They’re so easy to make and I (and my friend) just loved them. Perfect amount of oats and peanut butter. Thanks so much for the recipe!
Ok well we only had reduced fat peanut butter( my husband eats peanut butter like it healthy to eat a jar …..so im guessing he thinks reduce fat is good lol.. i say no way) the cookies did not flatten much you think thats why???
Hi Bex, That could be possible, I haven’t tried this recipe with low-fat peanut butter.
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.
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!
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!
Just coming back for the third time to get this recipe! My husband is addicted to it, thanks so much!
I made a fresh batch (again) today! They are by far the best of the best!! Thanks for great recipe!! :D
What would you think about freezing the dough and baking later?
You could definitely freeze and bake later, they will just need an extra couple minutes in the oven.
Thanks, Michelle. Is there some sort of general rule about freezing cookie dough? Certain recipes (such as the salted chocolate shortbread) specifically mention freezing them, but it is always okay to freeze any cookie dough?
Hi Amanda, Generally I think cookie dough is definitely okay to freeze, just bake it for an extra minute or two.
I cannot wait to make these!! They look wonderful.
Fabulous! I used chocolate chunks……yummmmm!
I have been baking a lot of cookies from your blog, and I think this is my favorite one thus far. Thanks!
I made these cookies minus the oatmeal because I was out…THE best cookie I have ever made! They came out perfectly the first time, which I have found is difficult when making cookies from scratch. I have already been reamed for this recipe from multiple people from events that I took them to. THANK YOU FOR COOKIE PERFECTION!!
Just made these cookies — the ingredients are a perfect trifecta of my favorite flavors! I followed the recipe exactly except I baked them 14 mins. because the tops weren’t light brown at 10 mins — they didn’t look done. Fabulous!
These are amazing!! They have become my staple cookie recipe. EVEYONE loves them.
delicious!!! just made these last night & between the family & myself we have eaten half the batch! made half with a little shredded coconut- tasty treat. thank u!
I can’t stop eating these after making them last night! I even brought some to work so I could make it through the day! Oh, and the dough…it’s the best!! Ate so much of it, I couldn’t eat a cookie till this morning…that’s okay, right : )
Can you refrigerate or freeze dough a day before?
Hi Tania, Sure, I don’t see why not!
Okay I have made these twice and i will confirm that these are the best EVER. its almost not worth making anything else because these are just that good. Sooo soft and moist.. even the half batch that i accidentally left in the oven a little too long turned out really soft.
HI – I’m making these for the third time. Each of the other times the cookies were devoured within minutes! My friends and I are in a running club and these are the perfect post run snack (and pre!).
THESE ARE MY FAVORITE COOKIES IN THE WORLD!! Every time I make them everyone is blown away by how amazing they are! Thanks so much for posting them. They are probably going to be my go to recipe for the rest of my life!
I only bake mine for 8 minutes tho because I like them super soft :]
I’ve searched for this recipe for years! I used to make them all the time for my sons and they have asked for them now that they are grown. I had lost my recipe but kept trying to “doctor” other recipes that I found. These are great! On the flour sack, they were titled as “Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies.” I used to find mini chocolate chips. They boys really liked them when I used whole bag! Thanks for posting it!
I made my first batch yesterday, and I will def be makn them again. Brought them to my weekly prayer meeting, and they went like a flash!! :D Thank you for sharing the wealth! Deeeelich! :D
These look great! I have to make cookies/biscuits every day after lunch for my guests so its always good to have a new recipe to try :)
I baked these over the weekend and they are amazing! The oats add such a wonderful texture. Thanks for the delicious recipe!
I just baked a batch and they are very nice! I used a small cookie scoop – perfect size and very cute! :D
Oh. My. Goodness. My 3 year old and I just made a double batch. I used half whole wheat flour and half the chocolate chips called for. I also used natural peanut butter with no added sugar or yuky hydrogenated oils.
I have found my new favorite cookie. These are amazing. Soft. Not too sweet. Wonderful. Heavenly. Yum.
Absolutely delicious. I used 50/50 white/wheat flour and natural PB and they turned out perfect. I will make them all of the time. Thank you for sharing.
Browneyedbaker, your recipes are reliably excellent – they always look just like your pictures, and taste great. I’ve made these cookies (and other recipes) so many times now, and each time they are perfectly perfect. Thanks for having one of the few blogs which are absolutely trustworthy!
Made these today – they are AMAZING!! Thanks for another great cookie recipe!
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.
I made these cookies and took them to work (I’m a teacher). I put them out at 7:30 and they were GONE by 9:00! There weren’t even any crmbs. They were a huge hit! Thanks for the great recipes.
Wow, I have used this recipe twice, and the end result is perfection! The cookies turn out soft and delicious, and I usually don’t have the best luck with cookies. Thanks for sharing!
WOW!!! The dough tastes great!! And the cookies are amazing. (raw and cooked).
I used an ice cream scoop to measure out the dough and it works super. I’m supposed to take these to church tomorrow but may have to hide them from hubby first or they’ll be gone.
Thanks for sharing this recipe. Can’t wait to make it for the grandkids.
I must admit, what drew me to this website’s recipe (through google) was the well made website and pretty pictures! Low and behold – the cookies were also AMAZING!!! By far the best trifecta of cookie I’ve ever made (or had). Thank you for sharing! <3
Oh my! These look amazing. I can’t resist a chewy peanut butter oatmeal chip cookie. These are definitely going on my short list to make! I haven’t been disappointed in any of the recipes you post, thank you thank you for such a great blog! How do you normally measure your flour (scale or spoon & sweep)?
Hi April, I always weigh with a scale!
Excellent! Do you use 4.25 ounces per cup of flour?
Yep, 4.25 ounces for all-purpose flour!
I have been looking for a recipe like this forever. I made this tonight and they turned out amazing!! Thank you so much.
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
I’m a relatively new follower of your blog, and it’s the first thing I check every morning! Love it. These are hands-down, without a doubt, the best cookies I have ever made! Soft, chewy, lightly crisp on the outside…perfection. Half of the absolutely scrumptious dough never even got turned into cookies…
Also, I was short on chocolate chips, so I used about 3/4 c. of those plus some Heath Bits. Nommmmm.
These look amazing! I’ll be whipping them up tonight for sure!
They are amazing!!
I followed your recipe to the T and these cookies were perfect! I used Ghirardelli semisweet chocolate chips and Smuckers Natural PB (I noticed some people had asked earlier). Thanks so much for such a great recipe! They will definitely become a staple in our kitchen (since I’ve already eaten like half the batch, lol).
Perfect!! My cookies are delicious and chewy. I followed the directions for shaping as well as the melting butter directions from the other recipe you referenced. I also chilled the dough in the freezer for about 20 minutes before baking (something I learned from Alton Brown on the food network). Awesome recipe, thanks!
Just made these! But I was a little low on PB so I subbed half of it for Nutella! Turned out so chocolately and amazing. Still can taste the PB, and I love the texture of the oats. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing.
I have three boys (including my husband) and they loved these cookies! Great recipe! Thanks for sharing!
I forgot to add that we were out of creamy peanut butter so I used chunky instead. Great results!!
This is an amazing recipe, and the hit of a gathering I went to today. Everyone gave a rave review after the very first bite!
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!
These were brought to me by a friend for my birthday yesterday, and wow, they were great. Picture perfect, wonderfully chewy, and oh so tasty! Great recipe!
Just found this recipe by “chance” and tried it today. Spectacular! I forgot about the shaping idea from ATK, and used a large cookie scoop to wonderful results, all the same! 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!
I’m wondering what kind of peanut butter you used for this recipe, natural or the standard ie Kraft?
Thanks for a great blog!
Hi Dilek, I just used regular peanut butter for this recipe.
I made these and brought them in to work. They were a HUGE hit! When people came in later in the day, the first thing they were told was about these cookies. Everybody has asked for the recipe. Thanks again!
Thank goodness tmrw is Cookie Friday!!
I’m new to your site and I love it!! I’ve made this recipe twice, and I fell asleep last night thinking of making it with craisins instead of chocolate chips to make “PB&J” cookies. I may gain a few pounds, but I’m definitely going to be a regular reader!!!
Made em – yeah, ate the dough. Everyone absolutely loved them. My new go to cookie!
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
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?
Hi Ann, I definitely think you could substitute KAF white whole wheat. I have used it in brownies and couldn’t tell a difference!
I made these today, but substituted Raisinets for the chip. FANTASTIC!
Oh these are dangerously good! I featured them on my blog today and will be taking some to work tomorrow and sending the rest with my hubby so that I don’t end up eating them all myself! I just started following your blog and I am so excited for all of the great recipes! Keep up the good work! Enjoy your day! Positive vibes…D
I just found your website and your recipes all look so deliscious! This was the first one I have tried and I loved these cookies. So yummy!
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.
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!
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!
This has to be the best cookie recipe I’ve ever made. SO SO SO good. Thank you!
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 :)
Oh wow! I am so making these this weekend!!!
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 must say, I love the little trick to get the bumpy tops. They come out SO freakin’ yummy looking!
I stumbled upon your blog last weekend and am in LOVE! It is my new time filler. This was the first recipe I tried–and WOW. AMAZING! I have a very picky eater for a husband and they got his approval. Thanks for sharing. I can’t wait to try more!
Just made these and they are delicious! Perfect amount of oats, chocolate and peanut butter! YUM!
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=)
On Christmas everyone agreed that these were the best cookies to ever come from my kitchen! I agree! These are friggin beautiful and over the top good! 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!
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?
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.
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.
I made these yesterday and turned out great! The peanut butter flavor was subtle and the cookie dough was delicious!
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!
Awesome to know these can be adapted to be vegan-friendly! Thanks for sharing!
^^^ Had exactly this experience – googled chocolate chip oatmeal peanut butter cookies and found this recipe. Veganized it with margarine and egg replacer, and have a new favorite cookie. LOVE IT!
i think i am finally going to make these:-) do you refrigerate the dough before baking?
Nope, no refrigeration needed! Enjoy the cookies :)
Oh my dear goodness, I was so THRILLED to see your comment on my blog! I am such a big fan of you, your amazing site, and your recipes! I had to pass the wonderfulness on to my readers!!
Thanks for making my day! Wishing you a lovely Thanksgiving! :)
Aw you are so sweet Meg, hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
Do you use old fashioned or quick-cooking oats?
Hi Joan, old-fashioned oats.
Tried these a couple months ago and now my husband asks me to make them on a weekly basis! They are perfect!
Gotta love when cookies make your man happy! :)
i am only 11 yrs old and these came out just like your picture!!!!!!!! they were so easy to make and they are so delicious!!! YUMMY!
Hi Becca, I’m so glad you enjoyed making these! Thanks for coming back to comment!
I tried this recipe out and pleased 9 children! Not to metion the 3 adults. thank you so much for sgaring! YUMMMMY
Woo for pleasing kids and adults alike!
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! :)
I can never understand why people won’t share recipes! So crazy! Well, I am glad you found your way here and hope that these cookies lived up to the ones you had this summer!
I added skor toffee bits to this recipe, it made the cookies even more chewy and amazingly delicious!
Oooh love the addition of toffee bits, thank you for sharing!
Oh man… or some broken up Heath bars would be DIVINE, I bet!
Awesome!!! This is the best cookie ever! I did a rare thing and followed the recipe exactly as written and boy oh boy am I happy I did!! Delicious…. Well, actually, one small substitution, which isn’t really a substitution…I used butter flavored shortening instead of butter, but that’s an even swap out.
So glad you loved these Elisa! And great to hear that a Crisco sub works well too, thanks for sharing!
These were amazing! My girls gobbled them up. I had to add to the cooking time by a whole 5 minutes though, I’m guessing because I used a thinner, organic peanut butter. This is a great cookie recipe – thanks for sharing! :)
So happy your girls loved these! A great after-school treat, for sure!
thanks so much for this recipe! i just made these and they turned out amazingly delicious, if a little flat because i accidentally only put in 1/2 the baking soda!
Yay Kate! Oops, I’ve had that happen to me too, glad they’re still delicious!
just made these, they are INCREDIBLE. the texture is amazing. they look so pretty and bakery-like. thanks for sharing this with us. :)
You are welcome Tanya! Thanks for stopping back to share your review, so glad you loved these!
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!
Hi Kate, Thank you for the tips on adapting this recipe for low-glycemic baking, very helpful!
I made these tonight— and people, THEY WERE FABULOUS!!! I love the smaller recipe because I make them without a mixer. This is just the perfect amount for today and tomorrow, and makes me want to make them again in soon!
Woo! So happy you loved these as much as I do!
Thanks for sharing this recipe.
I made them & took them to work a couple of weeks ago… wow, I have never had so many people track me down to tell me how delicious my baking was!!
I often take goodies in to work & usually get good feedback, but these are seriously the favourite by far. People are still commenting on them now… I may have to do some more soon :) These are going straight into my ‘go to’ folder!
Yay for impressing the coworkers Jayne! Glad these cookies were a hit!
Wow!!!!! These cookies are so good, think they will be gone very soon. Taking them to a friends house tonite. I made the cream cheese cinnamon rolls several weeks and they were the best I have ever tasted…Cant wait to try some more of these recipes…
Thanks for the recipes…. I’ll be back again soon.
Yay for cookies and cinnamon rolls! So happy you loved them both!
I made these cookies a couple hours ago and they are perfect! i will definitely be storing this recipe for future occasions.
So happy you liked them Rachael, thank you for stopping back to share your feedback!
I just made these and they are wonderful! Thanks for sharing the recipe!! They are a hit in my home…made a double batch and I think I will be making another double batch real soon.
You are most welcome Donna! Mmm love double batches of cookies!
can’t stop leaving comments on every recipe, sorry . I just can’t wait to make these cookie recipes, I want to try them all, I think I’m goin to the supermarket now and buy the ingredients so I can start bakin :-)
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.
how did you vegan-ize them? a friend of mine is vegan and i think he would enjoy these!
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
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?
Hi, I found your website yesterday and am absolutely LOVING it. In Australia, we have never heard of some of your recipes, but i’m having an ace time checking them out. 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!
awesome cookie!!! used maple syrup instead of vanilla and most ingredients including peanut butter were organic…..I needed 5 more minutes, I’m at over 9,000 feet
this is THE BEST peanut butter cookie recipe EVAAAR!
everyone i’ve made then form adores them. thank you for sharing!
ooh, and if you’re ever looking to spice things up, a teaspoon of cayenne pepper mixed in with the flour is magical (in a tricky haha you’re cookie is spicy, here have another kind of way).
again, thanks for the recipe!
Oooh awesome tip about the cayenne! I would have never thought of that, I’ll have to give it a try, thanks!
My boyfriend just said these are the best cookies he has ever tasted, and he’s not trying to flatter me. They are perfect. Thanks for posting.
Hi Meagan – That’s awesome! Gotta love anything that impresses the boys :)
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 :)
Super recipe! The dough was fantastic! Made them with a group of friends and they never actually made it to the oven… next time!
Sooo chewy and flavorful! I made these this morning and they are almost gone! I will definitely make these again!
i just baked these today and my family LUVED them! thank you
Holy deliciousness! Just took these out of the oven and yum!! Doubt they’ll last long around here!
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!
Amazing cookies! Just made these for my friends up at school. We all loved ’em.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
Sounds like all of my favorite cookies rolled up into one!
Can’t wait to try it out!
This recipe is out of this world! I used chocolate chunks. This recipe is replacing my other pb cookies recipe. Thanks for sharing!
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!
so yummy and moist!! these are great cookies..i will definitely make them over and over again :)
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!
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
Man these were really good! So soft!!
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
these came out great!! love it…
It looks great. Good combo of flavors. My fav is chewy…all the way.
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!
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!
Oh man these are exactly what I’m looking for! Thanks! I’m going to make them right now
Perfection. I made these today for a pitch in at work.
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!
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!
OH my gosh those look amazing. And with the oats in them you could pretend they’re healthier ;)
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!
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.
Those look absolutely amazing and have 3 of my favorite ingredients…peanut butter, chocolate and oatmeal! Can’t wait to try the recipe!
These look kinda perfect! What a yummilicious crust!
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…)
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.
O-M-G!!! These cookies look AMAZING!! I’ve been craving chocolate chip cookies, and then you posted this!! Goodness!! I may have to make this tonight.
These cookies look perfect and delicious! I love how big they are. Can’t wait to make them.
Big fat YUM!
I love peanut butter – in anything! sounds so…good! I’ve saved this recipe – it’s a keeper!
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!
Whoa, heaven melted into heaven! It just doesn’t get a whole lot better, does it?
Oh, drool! Can you send over a dozen or so of those, please?
I think I just found the cookie recipe of all cookie recipes!!! These sound (and look) absolutely amazing.
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.
Mmm nice cookies, I love the second photo with them all stacked up.
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.
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!
Wow, those look divine! I love the texture of oats in cookies! Yummy!
These look so much better than the ones I have been making! I think I have a baking project for this weekend.
Those cookies are flawless!
Those cookies look amazing and I am sure they taste really good.
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).
“trifecta of cookie goodness” love it!
there goes my diet… I MUST make these tonight!
I agree, that’s one of the best combinations! These are a must-try for sure!
I looove throwing together PB. chocolate, and oatmeal. What a great mix for a yummy, chewy cookie!
Well, I guess I know what I am doing this afternoon ;)
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.
Definitely the perfect trifecta! I love the shaping method, can’t wait to try it!
I wouldn’t even try to resist eating the dough. Heh. They look amazing, totally my kind of cookie.
