Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

So soft and chewy! These oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookies will be a new favorite, for sure!

Lately it’s been all cookies, all the time up in this house.

I don’t know what my problem is, but I’m just addicted to the soft, buttery goodness that is a chocolate chip cookie. Of course, I can only make the same chocolate chip cookies so many times before I start seeking out crazy things to go throwing in the mixer. And by crazy things, I almost always mean peanut butter.

Am I the only one that wants to add peanut butter to pretty much everything? Probably not. Peanut butter is life, friends.

Anyway, I took the recipe for my monster cookies and I just barely doctored it up to make these peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

I mean, I already make those monster cookies alllllll the time. Why not give myself another reason to keep making them? These cookies have extra vanilla and more oats. The m&m candies are replaced with loads of chocolate chips that just melt in your mouth.

Why I Love These Cookies:

They’re soft. Like melt in your mouth, fall apart in your hands soft. Of course, if you don’t like that sort of thing, you can bake them for an extra minute or two. I love this in a cookie though.

They’re loaded. These are literally bursting with chocolate chips. The dough could not hold another chocolate chip, so don’t even try. These are perfect as is.

No chilling. Look, I get that most cookies need to chill in the fridge in order to not go flat. I get that, but I still hate it. When I want cookies, I don’t want to wait an hour to eat them. I want them now. This recipe stays super puffy and thick with zero percent chill time. In fact, these pretty much stay in the same shape as when you place them on the baking sheet. If you want flatter cookies, you’re going to need to flatten them with your hand before baking. Love that!

Those oats, though. They make me feel like I’m making smart choices. I mean, yes, it’s a cookie. But it’s a cookie with oats – how bad could it be? (Yes, I know I’m in denial. I don’t care.)

Okay, friends, make these and report back. Are they as good as I think they are? Will you be making them again and again and again?
