Chewy Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies!

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 12 mins

These cookies are chewy inside with a crusty outside , the ultimate combination for a cookie!! I think next time I make these, I'll add a little more flour as I like a thicker cookie. I used some sultanas, apricots and extra peanuts in mine.

Ok, I haven't eaten these yet...but I wanted to put down the measurements in how we understood them. 3/4 cup flour and of oats, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar and 1/3 cup butter. We shall see how they turn out...

We loved these cookies... I am partial to PB cookies but Dugan is partial to oatmeal. This is a great recipe that we both enjoyed. It combines both of our favorites.It is crunchy/crisp on the outside(which I love)but chewy(which Dugan loves) Excellent recipe. Just the right combo amount of white and brown sugar. (I had to run my regular white granulated sugar in the processor to make caster sugar) Excellent excellent excellent recipe.

Very scrumptious! Loved the combo of the oats, peanut butter and I used semi sweet chocolate chips. Perfectly baked in 12 minutes (but I did watch them) and I received an exact 36 cookies! The conversions are easy to be made to US measurements too - had not one issue. Thanks for a keeper of a treat! Made for the I Recommend tag game.! :)
