Extra-Chewy Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Cookies
The beginning of November often feels to me like it’s the start of a marathon… Like, Buckle up, Buttercup! The next couple of months are going to be a little insane. …And then, as soon as everything calms down around mid-January or so, I’ll have a baby. Hey, sounds like a plan!

Let’s get back to the discussion on from a few weeks ago about Ugly Food.  Stews, remember?  Ugly yet delicious.  Curries are pretty dang rough looking as well, for all their tastiness.  And then we have these ugly little Chewy PB and Oatmeal Cookies.
Extra-Chewy Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Cookies
Don’t be a hater!  You cant let the ugliness of these cookies deter you in any way.  They are nothing short of my own vision of a chewy cookie wonder; nutty and not too sweet, with the oatmeal flakes competing for perfection along with a crisp-at-the-edges outside and a batter-y inside.  Since I’m in Michigan for a few days for work and hanging at my parents, I baked the (third, final) recipe of these bad boys in my parent’s kitchen.  My mother and I decided that since these cookies have oatmeal (soluble fiber!), peanut butter (protein!) and, uh…  eggs! they were perfect for breakfast.

We’re so smart.  That’s why we sat at the kitchen counter and ate four each at like, 10 in the morning on Saturday.  Breakfast of Champs, that’s what we said to ourselves.

Ready to get started with me and Cookie Week?  Check out the details for the awesome giveaway below the recipe, and make sure to swing by all the other blogger’s cookie recipes when you can.

Personally, I’m looking forward to more reasons to scarf cookies for breakfast.  Yay, holiday baking!

Extra-Chewy Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Cookies
1/2 stick of butter (1/4 cup), melted
2 eggs
1 cup old fashioned minute oats
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white flour
Preheat the oven to 350*F.  Whisk together the butter and eggs and add the oats.  Set aside to let the oats soak a bit.
In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter, dark brown sugar, vanilla and salt and mix until thoroughly combined.  Add the butter, eggs and oats and mix, then add the flour and stir just until the flour is incorporated.
Drop the cookies in tablespoon sized balls onto a baking sheet.  Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the bottoms have browned and slightly crisped, and the cookies come easily off the bottom of the pan.  Allow to cool slightly before serving.

  1. I don’t know what you’re talking about but cookies are never ugly, they are a beautiful delicious thing. Like these!

  2. I love all the cookies. But salty/sweet ones are really my favorites to bake — loaded peanut butter oatmeal cookies with pretzels. And sprinkles. YES.

  3. pshhh these look gorgeous to me! Love the chewiness and the amazing pb and oatmeal goooodness!

  4. LOL, I’m in love with your ugly cookies!!! I cannot resist a chewy oatmeal cookie…and adding pb makes them even better!

  5. My favorite cookie to bake for cookie swaps is peanut butter with 1/2 of cookie dipped in chocolate sprinkled with red or green sugar

  6. Cookies for breakfast? Sign me up! (And since they’re full of healthy fiber, that means that the more you eat, the better for you they are… right?)

  7. Peanut butter and oatmeal sound like a great combination for a chewy cookie. Which are pretty much my favorite kind. I don’t do crispy very often. Love these!

  8. I’m probably not really ready for this whole T-Day/Christmas marathon. I mean, shouldn’t I be recovering from my last one still? :P And then to be having a baby at the end of it all! Kudos to you, my friend. At least there will be lots of cookies!! And these look awesome to me!

  9. So what you’re saying is that these aren’t really cookies, they’re breakfast energy bites, right? Because I think that’s how I’m going to justify eating them for breakfast tomorrow…

  10. Oy, tell me about it! I’ll reward my “hard work” with plenty of cookies, don’t you worry :) The kid will probably come out craving chocolate chips.

  11. These look delicious. My favorite Holiday cookie has always been the Peanut Butter ones with the choc kiss in the middle!
