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.
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).
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!
