My friend, Betty, gave these cookies the ultimate compliment. She baked up a test batch for me. The next time I saw her she told me they were so good that she "hid them all in the back of her freezer so she wouldn't have to share them with anyone". A girl after my own heart! ❤️
MAKING YOUR OATMEAL PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
This recipe comes together quickly and only takes a short 45 minutes to an hour of chill time. These oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookies bake up so thick and chewy and are sure to satisfy all the cookie monsters in your life.
I use a #30 cookie scoop to get about 2 tablespoons of cookie dough per cookie. These cookies are definitely large so you'll want to give plenty of room between them on the baking sheet.
They will likely be a little puffy when you pull them out of the oven. I lightly press on the tops (with the palm of my hand) once removed from the oven to give them a less domed appearance.
