My favorite peanut butter cookie recipe is this flourless peanut butter cookie recipe I posted about last year.
Recently, I came across a variation adding oats to the batter on Domestic Fits. Same easy batter, but with healthy oats added to it. Genius!
I had all the ingredients on hand, so I was able to quickly whip this up this weekend, cram a few in my mouth between cleaning the kitchen, and pack a bunch for Mr. K to snack on at work.
Flourless Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter use store bought rather than natural
- 1 cup packed golden brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup quick oats
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Add everything except oats and chocolate chips in a large bowl. Using a whisk or large spoon, mix until batter is smooth. Stir in oats and chocolate chips. Batter will be very sticky and wet. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop generous 1 tablespoon dough and place onto cookie sheet, space about 2 inches apart. Using moistened hands, shape dough on sheets to form balls.
- Bake cookies until golden about 10-12 minutes. Cookies will look done but if you touch them, they will not be fully set. Leave cookies on sheet to cool and set before moving them.
