These oatmeal peanut butter cookies are not what you may expect but ones that plenty of spicy flavor that surprisingly compliments the peanut butter with a slightly different enhanced taste only made better with underlying chocolate from the chips.

  • 1 cup brown sugar firmly packed of light or dark
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup butter or margarine avoid using a package labeled a spread
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 3/4 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups of uncooked oats either variety
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 ½ cups chocolate chips
  1. Cream the softened butter, oil, eggs, vanilla, peanut butter, and sugar with your electric mixer until well blended.
  2. Sift the flour with the baking soda then add the remaining ingredients and incorporate together in your mixing bowl with the creamed ingredients.
  3. Place by rounded tablespoons or using a small ice cream scoop on greased cookie sheets. These cookies don’t spread as much as some others, but I suggest you give them room and avoid making them too large. The reason for making them more medium size cookies over huge ones is that they may thin out too much and break.

  4. Bake in a 350-degree oven for about 10 to 12 minutes. They will get slightly brown around the edges.

  5. Give them a few minutes to cool because they will lose that initial soft texture and firm up in that time.
  6. ENJOY!
