Ingredients For Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

Tips For Making these Cookies:

  • We recommend Creamy peanut butter. The cheap store brands I have tried work fine. Crunchy has a bit too much texture for this recipe. Stick with creamy.
  • Do NOT use a natural peanut butter for this recipe. I don’t know why but the natural style peanut butters cause the cookies to be dry and crumbly. Not what we are going for here at all.
  • Use old fashioned oats. They will create a better texture and flavor by far than quick oats.
  • Use room temperature eggs and butter for best results.
  • In our video demonstration you will see we use a stand mixer. You can also use a hand held mixer at least until you get all the whisked dry ingredients mixed. Then stir in the oats and chocolate chips.
  • And yes a large wooden spoon, large bowl and LOTS of muscle will work fine to make this recipe. 🙂
  • The baking time will vary slightly depending on your oven. The cookies are done when they are lightly browned. I recommend you babysit the first batch to be sure the cookies don’t over bake.

Storing and Freezing:

  • Store in a cookie jar once completely cooled. They will hold well for up to five days.
  • For Longer storing refrigerate in a airtight container.
  • These cookies stand up great to freezing once thoroughly cooled and set up.
  • Freeze them flat so they don’t crumble.
  • You can freeze them solid right on your baking sheet. Then remove the cookies to a freezer bag with all the air sucked out.
  • Or layer the cookies in a freezer container with an airtight lid. Place parchment between the layers for easy thawing and removal.

Thawing:

  • Thaw at room temperature for quick thaw.
  • Do NOT microwave these cookies to thaw or you will have a mess.
  • For slower thawing set your freezer container right in the fridge and let sit several hours to all day.

Helpful Products:

  • Jenaluca Scoops. This is a beautiful set of three scoops. Would make a lovely gift for your favorite foodie. I use the middle size for cookies.
  • Nordic ware Baking sheets
  • Silicone Sheets are so handy for baking cookies. The cookie bottoms won’t stick to the pan or burn.

Notes

*Do NOT choose natural style peanut butter. Here's why:

For all of our peanut butter cookie recipes we recommend your favorite brand of creamy peanut butter.( I use Jiffy or the house brand)

All of the Natural style peanut butters we have tried will make the cookies dry and crumbly. We don't know why but we can't recommend them for cookies.

Storing and Freezing:

  • Store in a cookie jar once completely cooled. They will hold well for up to five days.
  • For Longer storing refrigerate in a airtight container.
  • These cookies stand up great to freezing once thoroughly cooled and set up.
  • Freeze them flat so they don't crumble.
  • You can freeze them solid right on your baking sheet. Then remove the cookies to a freezer bag with all the air sucked out.
  • Or layer the cookies in a freezer container with an airtight lid. Place parchment between the layers for easy thawing and removal.

Thawing:

  • Thaw at room temperature for quick thaw.
  • Do NOT microwave these cookies to thaw or you will have a mess.
  • For slower thawing set your freezer container right in the fridge and let sit several hours to all day.
