Pinned & prepped: Peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

2012 March 26
by Emily Hill

At the age of 37, I’ve finally realized the treat that truly floats my boat is something baked—more specifically, cookies and brownies. Even more specifically, freshly baked cookies and brownies.

Either my tastebuds have matured or the Twix, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Peanut Butter M&Ms have become stale in my not-so-secret stash. (Trust me, they aren’t stale; they don’t sit around long enough. It isn’t called an emergency supply for nothing.)

The other day I was craving (yet again) a batch of freshly baked cookies and scoured Pinterest for a cookie recipe that had a combination of three important things: ease, speed  (i.e., no overnight refrigeration of the dough) and  required ingredients on hand. I also wanted chocolate chips. And peanut butter. Oooh, and oatmeal!

I totally found it: Peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

Maybe it was because I had such high hopes for these cookies from Brown Eyed Baker that they didn’t live up to expectations. While they were good, they definitely aren’t my favorite peanut butter-infused cookie. They weren’t moist enough and I could barely make out the oatmeal. And I like oatmeal. Sadly, this recipe won’t be added to my monstrous recipe binder.

Of course, they look pretty tasty:

And they’d totally do in a pinch, but I think I’ll stick with my famous peanut butter cookies or freezer-friendly oatmeal peanut butter cookies and toss in a couple handfuls of chocolate chips.

Don’t get me wrong. I still ate over a dozen of these cookies. We’re talking baked goods. With chocolate. And peanut butter. And oatmeal.

And I experience some sort of emergency requiring some sort of treat on a daily basis.

What you’ll need for the original recipe:

Baking soda
Unsalted butter
Peanut butter
Brown sugar
Rolled oats
Semisweet chocolate chips

    Wow do they look good. I can imagine the smell as they cook and the warm taste just after you take them out of the oven. Sadly I am on a diet for a competition. Oh the pain…. I think I will save this recipe for June. Yummo

    Good for you for sticking to your diet plan! I’m not sure I’d have the self-control to do so. ;)
