Peanut Butter, Oats and Chocolate Make Mondays Better

I love making cookies. I love finding new cookie recipes to bake. I love serving cookies. And I love eating cookies!

Win. Win. Win. Win.

Here’s the thing. I love a simple, traditional drop cookie. There’s something comforting about the method, the texture and the goodness of chocolate chips. I really like finding quick, easy drop cookies that are a little bit different than the normal cookies we’re accustomed to.

These cookies fit that bill like none other.

Chocolate chip cookies (win)

WITH OATS! Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (even better)


I LOVE these cookies!!!

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


(makes about 2 1/2 dozen – I like to double the recipe!!)

  • 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.

4. Stir in the oats, and then the chocolate chips.

5. Use a cookie scoop and drop dough onto prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for 7-10 minutes (based on the size of your cookies), or until the cookies are lightly golden.

6. Cool on the baking sheet (about 8 minutes) and then cool completely on a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Make. Eat. Give. Smile. Show Monday who is boss.
