I love me a peanut butter cookie. But I like chewy cookies -- not the crumbly ones (unless I am putting on top of ice cream or yogurt!) If you're like me and like yourself a chewy cookie, you are going to love these peanut butter cookies. Enjoy!


  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Mix together peanut butter, sugar, vanilla extract, and eggs until blended well.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and mix until combined well. 
  5. Roll dough into balls and place on cookie sheet.
  6. Press down with fork vertically and horizontally to make the traditional peanut butter hashmarks.
  7. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes (depending on how big you roll your cookies).
  8. Let sit on baking sheet for 1 minute before transferring to cooling rack or plate.

Yields 12-16 cookies
