Peanut Butter~Oatmeal~Chocolate Chip Cookies

Have you ever had a hankering for a cookie, but couldn't decide between a chocolate chip, oatmeal or peanut butter?  Well, this cookie fits the bill for your indecision! It's all three classic cookies rolled into one...a peanut butter, oatmeal, chocolate chip cookie:)  How can you go wrong?

My son found this wonderful recipe when I was visiting him and his family, but I didn't get a chance to make it for them when I was there.  Soooo...I made a batch when I got home and shipped them off.

Of course I had to sample one (or two) before I sent them:) Besides tasting GREAT, these cookies are just the right combination of crispy and chewy. The peanut butter doesn't overpower the chocolate chips and vice versa, with the oats rounding them out nicely.

Peanut Butter~Oatmeal~Chocolate Chip Cookies

From: For the Love of Cooking
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Using an electric mixer, combine melted butter and granulated sugar until fluffy. Add peanut butter and brown sugar, beating well until thoroughly combined.  Add egg and vanilla and mix until smooth. In a small bowl stir together flour and baking soda, then add to cookie dough and mix just until blended. Using a mixing spoon, stir in oatmeal and chocolate chips.

Scoop balls of cookie dough and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheets.

  9. My Hunny and I are both looking at these and drooling - big time! His fave cookie is oatmeal chocolate chip - mine is peanut butter. This could be the very glue that holds our marriage together. Thanks, Sue! :)

  15. I made these yesterday and thought they were perfect! You're right that none of the ingredients overpower the others. I also love that the dough isn't super sweet, so with the chocolate chips it's perfect. Also like you mentioned, they are the perfect combo of crispy and chewy! Thanks for sharing this great recipe. Love your website!

  18. Waiting on the secon batch to finish baking, and just tried a yummy warm one from the first batch. I thought they'd taste a little more peanut buttery, but they are still awesome!! It's a perfect mix of everything together. This recipe is a new fave : )
