No joke, I am addicted to sweets. I cannot make it through the day without having something sweet! I am constantly scrolling through Pinterest trying to find new recipes because I love baking new treats.
Some of my favorite cookies are peanut butter cookies and oatmeal (chocolate chip or raisin) cookies. So, when I came across a peanut butter oatmeal cookie recipe, I had to make them, and I knew they would be frickin delicious. Spoiler alert, they were. I love the combination of peanut butter and oatmeal because it has such a good texture. They are perfectly soft and chewy. I also personally love the taste of peanut butter cookies, because they are sweet and a lil salty. If you like dipping your cookies in milk, these are the perfect cookies for this. These cookies are the perfect snack, treat, or even a sweet breakfast because they are filled with oatmeal and peanut butter.
Today, I am going to share this delicious recipe with you. I found it on justsotasty.com and I recommend making these cookies ASAP!
I promise I will stop gushing about these cookies in one second, but… another thing to love about this recipe is that it is super quick and easy!
*I made a few adjustments to the recipe below based on what I did, click the link above to see the original recipe*
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
In a large bowl beat together the butter, sugars, and peanut butter until fluffy.
Mix in the egg and vanilla.
With the mixer on low speed, carefully beat in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Then mix in the oats.
Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Form the dough into little balls (I like to use an ice cream scooper)
Place 2 inches apart on a lined cookie sheet. Do not flatten. Then bake for 8-10 minutes or until the tops are just set.
Ahhh I hope you all will take the opportunity that I am giving you (haha) to make these delicious cookies. I love baking year round, but I especially love baking during the Winter. I would actually really like to do more recipes on here, so let me know id you want to see more! Also, what’s your favorite baked good? Cookies, cupcakes, brownies? I’d love to know.
Sidenote – I really love taking pictures of my baking, and I feel like I did ok?
