My kids are banging the door which is locked because I wanted to focus and complete all the posts sitting as drafts. Do you have any tips how to focus when kids are breaking the door you locked in favor of having some kids-less time or any other tips to hide in the same house and not to be found ???? Well, I’m sure most of you would be clueless because this is the story of every second mom on the planet Earth. I’m sure lives of moms on other planets would be a lot easier. Umm… maybe we should consider moving to some other planet ? Huh!!!!
So I was here to post a new cookie recipe. If you are looking for a quick recipe of cookies which is also loaded with lots of flavor, bake these Oatmeal & Peanut Butter Cookies. Throw in some raisins and chocolate chips to make it kids favorite!
I created this cookie recipe because I wanted to use up leftover oatmeal and peanut butter so I could buy new 😀
I added raisins and chocolate chips to make it kids-friendly and guess what these cookies have turned out so delicious. I can’t stop munching on these. I baked these over the weekend so there were only few left when I was packing the lunch boxes on Monday morning
If you like oatmeal and peanut butter, this could be your next favorite bake. And did I tell you they can be whipped up in less than 15 minutes (minus the time needed to chill the dough) That is the best part of the recipe.
Let’s get to the recipe 🙂
If you are looking for a quick recipe of cookies which is also loaded with lots of flavor, bake these Oatmeal & Peanut Butter Cookies. Throw in some raisins and chocolate chips to make it kids favorite!
- 113g Butter (softened)
- 100g Light Brown Sugar
- 75g Caster Sugar
- 85g Peanut Butter (smooth)
- 1 Large Egg
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 125 g All-purpose Flour
- 180g Oatmeal
- 40g Raisins
- 30g Chocolate Chips
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/4 tsp Cinnamon Powder
- In a large bowl beat together butter and sugars with wooden spoon until the mixture is creamy. You can do this with electric mixer also. But a wooden spoon does it quite well.
- Add egg, peanut butter and vanilla extract. Mix until everything is well blended.
- Add the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon powder. Give everything a good mix.
- Add oatmeal, raisins and chocolate chips. Fold everything together.
- Cookie dough is ready. Cover it and keep refrigerated for two hours.
- Prepare your baking sheets to bake the cookies. Line the sheets with baking paper or parchment paper. When the dough is ready to be baked after two hours, pre-heat your oven at 350F.
- Take an ice-cream scoop and place about 24 scoops of the cookie dough on cookie sheets.
- Bake about 12 minutes or until the cookies start browning from the edges at 350F. The center of the cookies will be soft. They will set more when they are cooled.
- Let the cookies cooled down for a minute before moving to the wire racks to cool completely.
- Keep the cookies in an air tight container in room temperature for 3 to 4 days.
Take out the butter out of fridge before 1 hour you start preparing the cookie dough. Always weigh your ingredients using a kitchen scale to match the results.
