Oatmeal-Peanut Butter Cookies

Total Time

Here is the best of both worlds, when you can't decide which is better. I feel like, at least we are eating something sort of healthy. ( do ya think?)


  1. Cream butter; gradually add sugar, beating well.
  2. Add eggs and peanut butter, and beat well.
  3. Combine oats, flour, soda, salt, and cinnamon; add in creamed mixture, beating well.
  4. Stir in raisins.
  5. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonsfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheets.
  6. Bake at 350F for 10-11 minutes.
  7. Cool slightly on cookie sheets; remove to wire racks.

I can't believe I forgot to review this recipe. These cookies are now my all time favorite. I did use half white and half brown sugar, half white and wheat flour and used chocolate chips instead of raisins. For Christmas, I am going to use cranberries instead of raisins. Excellent recipe!

I tried this recipe, yesterday, but made three changes to it. First, I substituted half of the butter with 1/2 cup Canola oil. Next, one of the cups of sugar that I used, became brown sugar. And third but finally, I added 1 tsp. of vanilla to the recipe. I left everything else as is. The cookies were "yummy," and I suppose they would be yummy without the changes, but with these changes, they were closer to the ones I've always made. I only got 48 cookies from this recipe, because I made them on the "big" side. Gave half of them to a neighbor who thought they were excellent.
