PEANUT BUTTER OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE INGREDIENTS
- All-Purpose Flour
- Baking Soda – Remember! Baking soda and baking powder are not the same ingredients which means the two are not interchangeable. Be sure you use baking soda for best results.
- Unsalted Butter – Do not use salted butter when a recipe calls for unsalted butter.
- Sugar – You’ll need both granulated and brown sugar for these Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies! You can use either dark brown or light brown sugar. Whatever you have on hand is fine.
- Peanut Butter – Cooking making is not the time for healthy peanut butter. Stick to the good ol’ fashioned creamy kind.
- Vanilla Extract
- Oats – Be sure not to confuse old-fashioned oats (a.k.a. rolled oats) with quick-cooking oats when picking out your ingredients. For thick and chewy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, you’re going to want the old-fashioned kind. Old-fashioned oats have a firmer texture, whereas quick-cooking oats are thinner and tend to meld into other ingredients when baked.
- Chocolate Chunks (or Chips) – You can use either semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chocolate chips for this recipe. If you are using chocolate chips, you’ll need to cut back the quantity from 1 1/2 to 1 1/4 cup…unless you just really love chocolate. In that case, feel free to leave it as is!
HOW TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
- Mix the Dry Ingredients – To begin, you’ll mix together your dry ingredients — the flour, baking soda, and salt — in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Set the bowl aside, and get started on the wet ingredients!
- Mix the Wet Ingredients – You can mix your wet ingredients in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or in a large bowl using a handheld mixer. Add the melted butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla to the bowl and mix well. Note: Before you add your dry ingredients, scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix once more to ensure your cookies spread properly when baking.
- Add Dry Ingredients to Wet Ingredients – Once your batter is looking smooth and well-combined, add the dry ingredients and slowly mix them in. Then, add the oats and chocolate chunks and mix once more.
- Scoop and Bake – Scoop about 2 tablespoons of cookie dough onto your cookie sheet. For easy removal, make sure you line the cookie sheet with either parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Space each cookie about 1 1/2″ apart to keep these Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies from baking into one another and transfer to the oven for about 14 minutes.
- Set and Serve – Remove the cookies from the oven and allow to them to cool on the pan for 5-10 minutes to set up before transferring them to a cooling. Then, serve and enjoy!
