Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Here on My Sweet Mission, we’re always trying to find ways to add more fiber to our delicious recipes, so, I created this high fiber, lower sugar cookie recipe that is definitely healthier than most cookies out there.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Actually, if my soft & chewy chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and my nutty peanut butter cookies got together they would make these delicious Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies!

Oh, but it’s not as easy as you may think because peanut butter and oats are tricky ingredients to work with. I know because I made these cookies twice to get them just right for you. You’re welcome. ?

Hey, that’s my job and both batches tasted great so we shared them with family and definitely enjoyed eating them. But, when I decreased the flour and oats a bit I liked the 2nd batch a little better.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

So, let’s get baking!

  • In a large bowl cream the butter, peanut butter, sugars, and salt.
  • On low speed, add the eggs and blend until incorporated, then mix at medium speed for a minute, and then at high speed for an additional minute. The mixture should be pale yellow and fluffy.
  • On low speed add the flour, baking powder, and baking soda and mix until just blended.

Pro Tip: Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt before adding the oats. This will ensure the small ingredients are incorporated well and eliminates sifting them. However, if the baking powder or baking soda is lumpy sift ingredients over the mixing bowl.

  • Continuing on low speed blend in the oats and then add the milk chocolate chips, saving 1/4 cup for the tops.

Pro Tip: You can use milk chocolate, semi-sweet, white chocolate or peanut butter chips. Just be creative and have fun!

  • Using a medium (2 oz) cookie scooper, put the dough on an ungreased nonstick baking sheet about 2″ apart and press the dough 1/2 way down.

  • Bake in a preheated 360º F oven (try this temperature, it works) for 12-13 minutes, or until the tops start to crackle and the edges are lightly golden. Making sure to not over bake.
  • Cool on baking sheets for 10 minutes then transfer cookies to a cooling rack.

Pro Tip: These cookies are nice and thick and as mentioned almost granola-like. But if you like your cookies a little softer and thinner, just decrease the oats by 1/2 – 1 cup. Boom, softer cookies!
