PEANUT BUTTER OATMEAL COOKIES INGREDIENTS

peanut butter oatmeal cookies raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need:

  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup quick cook oats
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Butter: Cutting out butter? While it may cause a change in flavor and make your recipe a bit ‘coconut-y’, coconut oil can be used as a 1:1 substitute for butter.

Egg: If you’re looking to replace the egg, using ¼ cup (approximately 65 grams) of applesauce or ¼ cup of pureed bananas can replace a single egg. 

Chocolate Chips: Try dark or white chocolate chips instead of your semi-sweet chocolate chips to change the flavor.

STEP FIVE: Stir in the chocolate chips. 

STEP SIX: Roll spoonfuls of dough into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.

PRO TIP: Leave about 1 ½ to 2 inches of space between cookies on the sheet, keeping in mind that they’ll expand quite a bit.

PRO TIP:  To quickly judge if your cookies are ready, remove the rack from the oven a bit, and push at the sides of a cookie lightly with either a spatula or carefully your finger. If the edge stays firm and doesn’t fall inwards, then your cookies are done.

    Made these for the first time today…YUM! They are the perfect combination of crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. I used mini chocolate chips and made them bite sized. They will be the perfect treat in the kids lunch boxes tomorrow.
