Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

My KitchenAid mixer is making me chubby…I gotta lay off the cookies! Even though we only bake two at a time, that’s still two more than we used to eat. However, I was curious about oatmeal peanut butter cookies…we had polished off the other batch of peanut butter cookies and I was wondering if an oatmeal pb cookie would be good…had never seen or heard of one. Thankfully, the internet yielded a bunch of recipes and I chose one that did not require shortening. These are definitely my favorite cookies so far (followed closely by the gingersnaps).

Blue Ribbon Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies (original recipe found here)

My only adjustment was to reduce the sugar by 25%…I may reduce the white sugar by 50% next time.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup butter (room temp)
  • 1 cup peanut butter (I used crunchy, reduced fat)
  • 3/4 cup white sugar (will probably reduce to 1/2 cup next time)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar.
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Mix oatmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Cream butter. Mix in peanut butter. Add both sugars and cream till smooth.
  4. Add eggs and vanilla to the peanut butter mixture, then stir in the dry ingredients.
  5. Drop 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes.
