Hearty PB Oatmeal Cookies

Raise your hand if you like peanut butter.

My hand is high in the sky!

When I ventured into my kitchen recently I had two things on my mind; peanut butter and oatmeal.  And here is what those two ingredients will get you when you put them in the same mixing bowl – Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies.

These cookies are hearty, soft, not overly sweet, and slightly denser than most kind of cookie.  The old-fashioned oats gives them a wholesome texture, while the peanut butter gives them a kick of protein. These are a great anytime cookie, but if you’re looking for a cookie that you can grab on your way out the door in the morning, and call your breakfast, then these are the cookies for you.

Hearty Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 c. margarine, softened

1/2 c. brown sugar

1/4 c. white sugar

1 egg

1/4 c. peanut butter

1 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 c. all-purpose flour

1 c. old-fashioned oatmeal (not quick cooking)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.  Makes about 20 cookies.

In a large bowl, cream together margarine, sugars, eggs, peanut butter and vanilla.  Add baking soda, salt, and flour; mix thoroughly.  Fold in oatmeal.  Using a dining sized teaspoon, drop equal sized amounts of dough onto prepared cookie sheets.

Bake for approximately 8-10 minutes.  Remove from the oven and cool on cookie sheet before moving. Storing these cookies in an airtight container will make them even softer.

What’s the last cookie you made?

  1. I made theses today; they’re so good, except they’re super crumbly. Though maybe that’s because I only used 1/2 sugar and added white chocolate chips.
