The Best Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s all about cookies this week! Last week, I started with the Best, Most Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies, and today it’s all about the peanut butter cookie. These aren’t your typical peanut butter cookie that you throw together and criss cross the top with a fork. No these are special. These are the BEST peanut butter cookies that you can make. I know, I know, I threw around that word “best” last week too but I’m serious here, people! Anytime I get a request from family or friends for peanut butter cookies, these are the ones that I make.

They are nothing short of amazing! They include chocolate chips and just enough oatmeal to barely notice it but not be overpowering. Yes, these peanut butter cookies have oatmeal, the secret ingredient to make them perfect.

When you are craving cookies and just can’t decide chocolate chip, peanut butter or oatmeal, this is the recipe to make. Heck, if you are craving any kind of cookies, these are the kind to make. This recipe is easy and as long as you don’t burn them, they turn out perfect every time.

Seriously, enough talk. Just make them. Period.

    I do a lot of baking. Every week. I don’t even have to make these to know they will be an outstanding addition to my recipe book. I will be making these today or tomorrow at the latest. I made 3 doz. oatmeal raisin and 3 doz. peanut butter cookies already today and need around 15 doz more. I bake for the local police and fire departments and they will love these. I will use unsalted butter instead of margarine though as it’s what I have. Margarines are all so different. Oh,and parchment paper for the pans for easier cleanup. Thanks for posting this!

  2. Ashley D says:

    The recipe calls for 2 TSP of baking soda, I’m assuming because it’s capitalized you mean Tablespoons? Thanks!

  3. Ashley D says:

    These turned out awesome! I’ll definitely be making them again! Yum! (Thanks for the recipe correction!)

  4. Maybe I missed it, but approx how much does this recipe yield?

  5. Hi Hollie, can you tell me if these come out chewy or more crispy?
    Thanks!

  6. Absolutely delicious cookies. I made for a football guys party and they ate every last one! My friend Shannon said they were top quality and she’s an excellent little baker! Note: I used butter instead of margarine, natural chunky peanut butter, a little extra of each sugars and milk and chocolate chips! Yum!

  7. I admit I was skeptical at first, but they are absolutely delicious! highly recommend 🙂

  8. kirsten b says:

    Amazing!! Instant family favorite 🙂 They were just crunchy enough and the layered flavors of oatmeal, peanut butter (used chunky) and the chocolate were perfect.

  9. I am wondering if I can replace the peanut butter with almond butter?

  10. Was just hankering for both chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies so these will be perfect. Will make them today. Love your recipes! Keep up the great work!

  11. Ernie Latusinksy says:

    Look, I know margarine is cheap. However, it’s horribly cruddy for one’s health. Just substitute butter.

  12. Thanks for the recipe. I’ll never use another peanut butter cookie recipe after this.

    My 10 year old daughter made these last week. She used half butter, half margarine, just because I had butter on hand, and only half the peanut butter because that was all we had! Lol. She mixed, I baked and they were nothing short of amazing! So chewy and delicious! Going to make them today with full peanut butter. Yum yum yum, can’t wait!!

  14. These cookies turned out great! Love the recipe! The only thing I would change is 2 cups of chocolate chip not 3 cups. 3 cups was just too much, the chips were falling out of cookie dough.

  15. Ohhhhh yummmmm! They really are perfect. It’s the texture, soft, yet crunchy. I did cut down on the chocolate, a heaping scoop of mini chips was right on for our tastes.

  16. Luca (from Italy) says:

    Great recipe, cookies are perfect like you buy (like Chips Ahoj) but you know what there is inside! Thank you very much I really appreciate this useful recipe.

  17. Really looking forward to making these as they look yummy…when the recipe say 1 cup…etc what’s a cup size or amount..any chance anyone could tell me in grams or ounces please??

  18. ellen castello says:

    How many dozen does this recipe make?

  19. Made these for Thanksgiving and everyone loved them, definitely recommend making them

  20. I just finished making these cookies and they turned out amazing!!

    I used butter instead of margarine and substituted half of the flour with whole wheat flour..

    Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!!

  21. Will it still work if i do not have any vanilla??

  22. Had no butter to sub for margerine, so used coconut oil, which is solid at room temp. Didn’t know what to expect but these are the best cookies I ever had! Try with coconut oil instead of butter or margarine. You will not be disappointed, and your heart will thank you too!

  23. Is it ok to add walnuts to the recipe?

  24. Monica Isaacson says:

    I couldn’t quite decide which type cookie to make for my Sweetie’s lunch tomorrow…I am THRILLED…..that I came across this morsel!!! FABULOUS….FABULOUS….FABULOUS….

  25. Absolutely amazing cookies. Truly heavenly.

  26. How can these be the best, when they start off with margarine. No thanks!

  27. WOW!!! These are great! Made with 2 c. Chips vs. 3, and Splenda vs. the white sugar. Amazing!!!! Thanks for sharing!

  28. I just made these and holy deliciousness!! Adding to my recipe book for future use. 🙂

  29. Thank you for posting this recipe! I baked these cookies for a fundraising bake sale and they were a huge hit! Moist and delicious. I will definitely bake them again, and again!!!

  30. Best cookies ever! I can’t stop making them. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

  31. Without a doubt, the BEST cookie recipe ever known. The only exception I made was using butter instead of margarine. I made a batch last night and another one tonight. My workmates and myself went crazy over these cookies. Thank you for sharing. These are absolutely the best and my new favorite.

  32. I made these today, I was a little skeptical on the whole adding oats thing but they turned out great! I’m not a baker, so I appreciate how easy they were.

  33. These cookies are good, but I’ve made a lot of changes to it to make them perfect. Reduced the butter (who makes cookies with margarine?!) to 3/4 c., reduced the white sugar to 2/3 c and reduced the chocolate chips from 3 cups (a crazy amount!) to 1 cup of mini-chips (with 1 cup of mini-chips you still get tons of chocolate distributed throughout). This recipe was a great starting out point, but I made the changes to take it from gluttony to an indulgence.

  34. I just made our first batch of these and they’re delicious! I only used two cups of chocolate chips, but otherwise stuck to the recipe.

  35. Can you put cornstarch in these to make them fluffier, or are they already. I do not like flat cookies.
