Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Recipe by Roosie
READY IN: 32mins
YIELD: 2 dozen




  • In a large bow combine the softened margarine and peanut butter.
  • I measure the peanut butter by packing it tightly into a metal measuring cup.
  • Then I scrape it out with my fingers.
  • Add the sugar or Sucanat and the egg to the bowl.
  • Mix it up really good until it is smooth, fluffy and glossy.
  • I do this with a wire whisk.
  • You could use a big spoon if you prefer.
  • Add the vanilla and stir it in a little.
  • Add the salt, baking soda, oatmeal, and flour.
  • Stir it all up really well.
  • You need a spoon to stir in the dry ingredients.
  • A whisk just won't work for this part because the batter is so thick.
  • Drop the dough by spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • These cookies don't spread very well so flatten the cookies with a fork or the flat bottom of a cup which has been dipped into flour.
  • Bake at 350°F for about 12 minutes.
  • Half a cup of chocolate chips may be added to the batter if desired.
