    These rock. The only change I make is margarine instead of butter. Next time I will do the spoon to mash them and add some strawberry jam. Who can say that peanut butter jelly oatmeal cookies sound bad?

    Hands down my favorite cookie recipe ever. My family absolutely loved it, and it was gone within a day. Absolutely perfect! I used chocolate chips in the batter. SOOO good! Thank you!!!

    this was a pretty good cookie. though my dough was so dry and i didnt even add all the oats and flour. i added chocolate to the mix for the last couple batches as to mix it up and it was a good mix. i only had old fashioned oats so i dont know if that made a difference. they had a pretty good flavor too.

    5 star cookie that I went hunting for. I also use crunchy peanut butter, as it then satisfies any need to add in chopped nuts, which is a preference around here. You really ought to double the recipe, as you can see that it makes only 36 cookies, and they are too good! Definitely has the taste of peanut butter cookie with oatmeal in it, rather than the reverse. Yummy yum!
