Peanut Butter Oatmeal & Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe | Weekend Food

When I ask Mike what kind of cookies he'd like me to make, the response is always the same : chocolate chip.  Being a creature of habit myself, I can appreciate the comfort that the classic cookie provides. But sometimes, just sometimes, I want to experiment a little, I want to step outside of our Toll House (or America's Test Kitchen...) box.

The result?  I bring you the cookie that combines all.  Peanut Butter, Oatmeal & Chocolate Chip Cookies. Oh my gosh, are they good.


Mike will say, "Oatmeal?  Peanut Butter?  Why would you mess up a perfectly good cookie?"

He will try one.  (Did I mention we've been through this a couple of times - he didn't even like tomatoes when we started dating.  Tomatoes!)  He will rave about them and helplessly consume a dozen in 2 days.  The cookie jar will be empty.  He will still request chocolate chip cookies next time I ask.  And I will make these, or try something new. 


We have friends visiting this weekend, so a stocked cookie jar is a must.

  1. Mmm, this is one of my favorite cookies. Yours look delish. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd love it if you'd come by and link your cookies up. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2011/06/sweets-for-saturday-21.html

    Just baked these with my new KitchenAid mixer & was so excited - the batter came out a little dry but I figured I would go with it. Just double checked all my measurements. For some reason it was off. Any suggestions? Tried many other recipes & ABSOLUTELY LOVED THEM - & YOUR SITE! :)

    1. I found the same thing - did you maybe use natural peanut butter? I usually do and I found on another recipe that it made a difference. Could be the same thing here. Next time I'll add a little extra butter or peanut butter I think.

    2. I had the same problem :S Seemed like there was more oats and chocolate chips than there was cookie dough! I had to form the cookies on the sheet because the batter was so dry :S The cookies didn't spread out at all, just little oat/chocolate lumps. They still tasted good tho! My three year old didn't seem to mind.

  5. I only have Old-fashioned oats. I'm thinking I probably reduce the amount of oats to 1 cup so they won't be dry (like others complained of). What are your thoughts?
