Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Chewy oatmeal cookie that is double peanut butter flavor from the addition of peanut butter chips, just perfect with a glass a milk.  Eat them warm from the oven or take along to share with friends and neighbors.

I was looking for something a little different recipe for peanut butter cookie to try.  This recipe ended up being a keeper and a great addition to your recipe box.  It is a recipe that is well worth sharing as the weather begins to turn chilly.

Final thought on these cookies, they are so good.  The flavor is more of a mild peanut butter with the caramel of the brown sugar and butter that blends in.  That flavor would be something you would find in a bakery made cookie.  This cookie doesn’t take the place of a classic peanut butter cookie but it does stand on it’s own and should be a classic.  I am surprised because I used very inexpensive ingredients.

    Comfort food x2. Oatmeal Cookies, great. Peanut butter Cookies, yummy. So these should be marvelous! Only, I think I’ll have to add some raisins for me. (And as I’m probably the only one in my family that would eat them, I’ll have them all to myself! )

      They don’t take the place of a traditional peanut butter cookie but very good. I know you like peanut butter. I still giggle when I think of your giant peanut butter cup you made. My grandkids would have eaten that in a few hours. I hope school has been going well for you. Please keep in touch.
