Who likes to enjoy delicious, warm peanut butter cookies every now and then? ? I do! ! Although they are not always my favorites, I do like PB biscuits. They are usually chewy and delicious, and are the perfect combination of sweet and salty.
We recently saw a recipe for peanut butter oatmeal cookies and knew we had to try it. I mean, we are a little obsessed with coconut oatmeal cookies and know that oatmeal will be a great addition to these cookies. Boy, I am so glad we tried them because I think I can officially say that they are my favorite peanut butter cookies! !
Oatmeal biscuits have always been popular in our family, but we combine our two favorite biscuits into one to make a better recipe. Oatmeal is absolutely perfect for this cookie recipe, making them soft, delicious and irresistible.
How to make peanut butter oatmeal cookies:
We like that these cookies are simple and delicious. As I mentioned above, the dough is good and addictive, so don’t say we didn’t warn you.
To make these cookies, only a few simple steps are required. They are so simple that even children can help. This is what you have to do…
Wet ingredients. In a kitchen utensil (or large bowl), whisk the butter, sugar, and peanut butter until smooth. Add eggs one at a time and mix well.
Dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir into the cream mixture. Add the oats until fully combined.
Scoop roasted. Use a biscuit spoon to scoop onto the biscuit slices. If you want to leave a criss-cross pattern on your cookies (typical peanut butter cookies), use a fork to gently press on the dough to make a criss-cross mark. Bake at 350°F for 12-15 minutes.
- Stay away from natural peanut butter. Use Skippy, JIF, generic store brand or similar.
- To add texture, use crunchy peanut butter
- To change the taste, try adding chocolate chips or ½ teaspoon of cinnamon.
- Cool the dough before scooping it. This will help to roast well on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside.
How to store/freeze
To bake cookies: Put the baked biscuits in an airtight container on the counter for about 4 days. In order to make the biscuits fresher, you can also put a slice of bread in the container. To freeze them, let the biscuits cool completely. Place in a freezer-safe container and separate the layers with parchment paper. Freeze for up to 3 months.
Dough: You can store the cookie dough in the refrigerator. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and store for 1-2 days before baking.
To keep the dough longer, scoop the dough onto a baking sheet and freeze it quickly. Freeze for about 2 hours. Transfer the dough balls to a freezer-safe container, label them and freeze for up to 3 months. When baking, put the required number of biscuits on a piece of paper, defrost for about 30 minutes, and then bake according to the recipe instructions.
We do like making cookies! This is something that kids can easily help, and we are happy that we have another preferred cookie recipe to add to our growing list.
Even though you may not add oatmeal to PB cookie often, I still hope you give it a try. I think you will enjoy it more than you think. 😉
