Chewy Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies - No Flour Needed!

    These are my go-to drop cookies.  They are always go over really well.  It is a big batch, so be prepared to share.  This started out as a monster cookie recipe, but has morphed over time to have more peanut butter and less add-ins.  Now it is a simple chewy cookie that is so good.

    One of Jax's daycare ladies is having a birthday, and I wanted to make something peanut butter for her.  I knew this would be the perfect thing.  I made enough for them and some for the kids.  The rest of the batch went in the freezer for later.  Now we'll just see how long that lasts!




     I'm trying out a new way to format the blog today.  The recipe should be printable.  Let me know what you think.  It is a few steps longer to put it together, but if it makes the recipes easier to use it may be worth it.  Any feedback is appreciated.  Thanks!

    All you have to do is mix everything together and drop them on a cookie sheet.

Then bake them until they just barely start to brown around the edges.

Freeze whatever dough is left for more cookies later!

Fresh cookies ready at a moment's notice!

  1. They look scrumptious!! Thank you for sharing! I see that you used both racks in your oven. I am never brave enough to try that - I guess I figure the ones below won't get done as well. What advice do you have for using both racks? Thanks!

    1. I turned on the convection oven for these, so the air circulated around both trays pretty well. However, sometimes I cook two trays at once and just switch them out half way through the baking time. That way both trays get done pretty uniformly.

  2. Yummy! I love peanut butter and I love oatmeal, but for some reason I don't think I've had them together in a cookie before. I can't wait to try these!

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. I could go for a couple right now! They have oatmeal in them, so it would be an acceptable breakfast right? See you Sunday!

  6. Hi Carlee- I'm new to your blog and found you via Oh My Heartsie Girl Wordless Wednesday.

    I always check new recipes and I love making cookies so I'm sure these will be on the short list to make soon.

    I'll add a link to my blog to where I found the recipe.
