Chocolate and Peanut Butter Dessert

Does anything taste better than the delicious combination of chocolate and peanut butter? These cookies are absolutely a chocolate peanut butter lover’s dream. Plus the addition of oatmeal adds an extra level of goodness to the cookie so that it has a soft and moist inside with a slightly crispy outside. Each bite melts in your mouth with fantastic flavor!

Since no one likes to wait to eat them, the best part is that they do not require any chilling time! Just mix up the batter and bake. In only a few minutes, you’ll be drooling with the sweet smell of this incredible dessert.

How To Make Them

To summarize, all you have to do is:

  1. Cream- butter, sugars, and peanut butter. I like to use creamy peanut butter for this. It makes it a little moister but crunchy will work as well.
  2. Addegg and vanilla.
  3. Combineflour, baking soda, salt, and oats. Quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats will both work here. I tend to use quick-cooking since it is finer in texture.
  4. Mix– dry ingredients into wet ingredients.
  5. Stir– in chocolate chips.
  6. Bake– 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are just slightly browned.
  7. Store– covered at room temperature for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

Variations

These cookies are very versatile. You can mix up the ingredients to suit your taste preferences.

  • Peanut Butter: try using chunky peanut butter for a nuttier taste. I do not recommend using natural peanut butter since it will make the cookie too dry.
  • Chocolate Chips: switch it up with milk, semi-sweet, or dark chocolate. All would taste delicious!
  • Mini Chocolate Chips: need extra chocolate? Add 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips to get an even chocolatier cookie.

Baking From Frozen

These Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies can be mixed up and frozen to be made another day. Just mix up the dough, scoop it into dough balls, and place each ball on a baking sheet as if you are going to bake but put it in the freezer instead. Then allow the balls to freeze for a few hours before removing them from the baking sheet and placing them in an air-tight freezer container or freezer bag. When ready to bake, remove the cookie dough balls and place them on a baking sheet. Add just a few extra minutes of cooking time when baking.

Why are my peanut butter cookies crumbly and falling apart?

If your cookies are crumbly, you have added too much flour. Peanut butter adds extra moisture so that the batter may be slightly creamier than other batters but this is normal and no extra flour is needed.

Should I refrigerate my dough?

For this recipe, there is no need to chill the dough before baking. But if you would like a more thicker cookie, you can chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to help the cookie keep its shape while baking.

Helpful Tips

– For a crispier cookie, switch the amounts of brown sugar and white sugar. Brown sugar makes a chewier cookie while white sugar makes a crispier cookie.

– If your cookies are spreading too much, be sure the butter is just at room temperature and not too warm. You can also refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes as well.

– Do not use natural peanut butter. This will make the cookie too dry.

    These Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies are absolutely delicious!! Very peanut buttery!! Yum! They deserve 10 stars! I followed the recipe exactly as stated, but used old fashioned oatmeal. Also, used milk chocolate chips. I refrigerated the dough before baking. These are soft and thick as stated and the oatmeal is somewhat subtle in the overall taste of the cookie. These cookies are so quick and easy, and are now one of my top 3 go to cookies that I will make over and over again. Thank you for sharing this recipe!!
