Peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

PB Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies|, chocolate and peanut butter come together in this chewy cookie to make them irresistibly good. My son complains each time I make cookies with oatmeal until he tries them and then remembers that he likes oatmeal. Oatmeal makes me feel like cookies are healthy and with the protein in the peanut butter even more healthy right? I really can’t say no to oatmeal cookies they seem to beckon me for more with each bite, these little babies are a bit dangerous to have around. Hubby  literally doesn’t go a day without peanut butter and the kids love chocolate chips so it seems this cookie meets everyone’s needs all in one cookie.

Oatmeal = Fiber. Peanut Butter = Protein. It’s all good! The formula for a pseudo-healthy but super delicious cookie treat! Have a good weekend, Suzanne!

These look wonderful Suzanne. It’s so funny how people don’t think they like oatmeal and then, after one bite of a yummy cookie like this, they can’t stop eating them 🙂

How delicious do these look? So delicious I just wish I could whisk it right off the screen and eat one right now. I don’t use oatmeal enough in cookies – you have inspired me!

I love oatmeal cookies but I’ve never thought to add peanut butter… wish I had a few straight from the oven for a Saturday night snack!

Oatmeal cookies are my favorite, especially when they contain both peanut butter and chocolate chips!

I would love these cookies right about now! So many of my favorite ingredients in one cookie

I have insatiable oatmeal cookie cravings, even in summer! These look like the perfect cure. 🙂

I know I do too Valerie 🙂

Yes and it’s basically because oatmeals are healthy. It’s just weird that your son likes oatmeal when most of the kids I have encountered despised it. It is indeed healthy but the taste is not that pleasant.

I know it’s strange not liking oatmeal but I really think it’s a textural thing that he remembers oatmeal from a little boy.

I have a hard time turning down oatmeal cookies, too, especially if they contain peanut butter and chocolate chips!
