Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Happy Friday!!  Since it's Friday and, well, just because, I think we need a cookie recipe today, dontcha think?!  I definitely think so. These Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies are truly a favorite of ours because not only are they super delicious, but easy to make! I always have the ingredients I need for these cookies in the pantry.

I kind of get stuck in my routine of making the same cookies over and over (Brown Butter Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies for LIFE!) but every once in awhile I need something different.  Maybe "need" is a bit dramatic but you know what I mean.  Need/want.  Same diff.

Anyways, if I'm going to cheat on my beloved chocolate chip cookies, it's gonna be with peanut butter.  Duh.

Soft Yet Chewy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

These Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies totally hit the spot!  I hate to say it, but I'm kind of particular with how I like my cookies.  When it comes to oatmeal cookies, I like a big chew factor.  I can't waste my time with crunchy oatmeal cookies.  Nope.  I need them soft and chewy.

These Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies are incredibly soft (even the next day!) and yet still chewy with all of the old fashioned oats.  On a scale of 1 to 10, these are pushing 11.  (p.s. as a health care professional I hate when patients rate their pain as 11/10 but as a professional cookie taster, I approve this rating).

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

The best thing about these peanut butter oatmeal cookies is just how simple they are.  No brown butter (although GAH I love brown butter so much), no artisan sea salt, and nothing that can't be found in most people's kitchen cabinets.  They're basic and I just love that about them!

    I used freshly ground, organic 100% peanuts. I also used whole wheat pastry flour. I stuck 2 very dark, fair trade chocolate discs con the middle of each cookie ball. I made them without the chocolate the first time but nothing is better that peanut butter and chocolate.
