Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are the best of three worlds-----peanut butter cookies, chocolate chip cookies, and oatmeal cookies!

The recipe was given to me years ago by a friend, and she called them Poppin Fresh Cookies.  That's a great name, but it wouldn't give any of you a clue as to the ingredients, so I just changed the name for the sake of the blog.  They are what they are-----delicious, chewy, yet slightly crunchy on the outside.  Mmmmm!

1 cup softened butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups quick cooking oats
6 oz. chocolate chips

Beat together butter and peanut butter.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl.  Add brown sugar, and beat well.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Beat on low until combined.  Add the oats and chocolate chips.  Stir.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Use a medium cookie scoop to place dough on parchment paper-covered cookie sheets.  Bake for 12 minutes, or until very lightly golden.  Cool on wire rack........or eat hot, straight from the oven, with a big glass of cold milk!  


P.S.  I made my cookies with a large cookie scoop, and then pressed them down slightly with the bottom of a glass.  I baked for closer to 14 minutes.


  1. Oh my, these sound wonderful- and really do combine my 3 favorite cookie ingredients!

    1. Oh yes, me too! :) I definitely like the on the verge of underbaked just to make sure they stay soft and gooey....!
