The Best Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 11 mins

I got this recipe off the net about a year ago and it is a favorite in this house! They are always gone within a day or two, they are just fabulous!


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix dry ingredients (other than choc chips).
  3. Cream shortening, peanut butter, and sugars in seperate bowl.
  4. Beat eggs and vanilla into shortening and sugar mix.
  5. Add dry mix.
  6. Blend chocolate chip in (is a bit tough but well worth it!).
  7. Bake 11-13 minute.

I made these cookies for a family reunion in Mississippi. Now I am sending the recipe to family members in Indiana and Florida. Everyone raved about these cookies. I found that it is best to transfer the baked cookie from the cookie sheet to a plate instead of a wired rack to cool. I used 1 stick of butter and 1/2 cup of shortening instead of 1 cup of shortening which resulted in a buttery flavor.

I never write reviews, and joined this network solely to write this one! This is really the best cookie recipe ever. They are so good I have to get them out of my house or I will eat them all!!! Thank you for sharing the recipe!

Great cookie recipe, made them as written. They are a peanut butter cookie & oatmeal chocolate chip all rolled into one cookie. Thank you.
