Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Posted on: August 20, 2010

After work I decided to do a little baking. I was in the mood for something sweet, dense and carb-y. After perusing in my cabinets I found this recipe from Vegetarian Times magazine. They came out pretty good. Moist but cake like in the middle and VERY filling. Well, at least I assume they are filling . . . I’m sure if I didn’t eat more dough then actual baked cookie I’d know for sure 😉 The one thing i would change about them is that there aren’t enough oats or chocolate chips throughout the finished product. I’ll be sure to load up for next time.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Yields about 4 dozen.

12 tbsp unsalted butter

3/4 cups creamy peanut butter

1 cup raw or granulated sugar

2 large eggs

2 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups white flour

2/3 cups whole wheat flour

1 1/4 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

1 cup old fashioned or quick cooking oats

1 to 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. In food processor or mixing bowl, combine butter and peanut butter, and process, or beat together with wooden spoon, until well blended. Add sugars and process or stir until combined. Beat in eggs and add vanilla; blend well until smooth and creamy.

3. Combine flours, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet and process, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl, or mix well with wooden spoon. Dough will be stiff. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.

4. Roll dough into balls about 11/2 inches in diameter and place about 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten dough.

5. Bake cookies for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden brown. Cool on baking racks.

Those look REALLY good. I love Vegetarian Times!!


Wow, I haven’t gotten Vegetarian Times in YEARS. I think my parents gave me a subscription when I first went Veg in like 6th grade.

I still think I have those old issues somewhere. I should dig them up! Even though there are soo many recipes online you would never need a cookbook or a magazine again, sometimes it is just nice to open up to a page and cook.

[…] prepping for dinner. I finally settled enough to have a cup of my favorite coffee and have 2 Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies that I unfroze and popped in the toaster oven. I’m still so puzzled at how there was only […]
