Darleen's Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

I have to admit, I don't know Darleen or the woman who blogged these cookies. I found them on Foodgawker. If you don't know about foodgawker, run there, right now, I will wait for you to come back. Ok, Foodgawker is a sight that, everyday posts the best pictures of all the blogs in one place and they will directly connect you to that blog. It is really amazing. I check it out everyday. Some of the things people make and the incredible pictures of them makes me want to cook and bake even more. I searched the sight last night for peanut butter cookies, and I found the picture of these and they looked so good. Thick and chewy, not your normal thin, crunchy peanut butter cookie, and maybe the addition of oatmeal will make you feel better about eating them, it didn't work for me, but maybe for you. This is the original recipe, her name is Suzy and she has great pictures and stories. But this recipe is so simple and seems like a classic to me. I added chocolate chips and it worked really well.



Darleen's Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies


1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup shortening
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup chocolate chips( my addition)
2 eggs
2 cups oatmeal
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt



Beat shortening, then add both sugars, and then the eggs. Add peanut butter. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and then stir in chocolate chips. Roll into balls and press with a fork. Bake 350 for 12-15 minutes, depending on your oven. I went about 14 minutes. Let them cool on the pan, then transfer to rack to cool. Makes about 5 dozen delicious cookies.


Don't they look great. Thick and chewy and the peanut butter is the star. So next time you pull out that old recipe for peanut butter cookies, maybe be daring and try this one. You won't regret it. This is my new go to peanut butter cookie recipe, which makes it keeper worthy, in my book.




Just an additional note, Congratulations to Justine and Emily this week. Justine is graduating preschool and getting ready for Kindergarten next year, yes, I am panicked over the bus, and my Emily had her moving up ceremony, she will attend Pre K next year.

  1. CONGRATS to your girls for their graduations! I would be panicked about the bus too..I hope it turns out well. Maybe she can make friends with one of the older kids so they can watch out for her..or just give the bus driver some gifts so she will watch out for her. :-)

  12. Congrats to both girls! They look adorable.

    Oatmeal cookies are my favorites and I also happen to be addicted to peanut butter. I think making these would be dangerous to my health. But also completely necessary.
