Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Dec 28, 2010

My husband's favorite cookies are peanut butter and oatmeal, so when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it. The original recipe calls for all shortening, quick oats, and regular whole wheat (I was out). So I made substitutions and we really like the results.

I kept thinking that these tasted familiar and I finally figured it out...Girl Scout Cookies - Savannahs! Without the creamy filling, of course. But if you really wanted to recreate them, you could blend some peanut butter with powdered sugar and spread it between two cookies or just dip them. :)

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
1 c (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c coconut oil
1 1/2 c natural peanut butter
1 3/4 c packed brown sugar
3 eggs
2 t vanilla extract
3 c rolled oats
2 c whole wheat pastry flour
2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter, coconut oil, and peanut butter. Add sugar, eggs, and vanilla; mix well. In separate bowl, combine oats, flour, baking soda, and salt; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls (mine were more like tablespoonfuls), about 2 inches, apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. By making them bigger, I got 8 per sheet. Flatten with a fork, if desired (I didn't). Bake 9 minutes, until lightly browned. Let sit for a couple of minutes before removing to cooling rack. They are fragile while warm. Makes about 3-5 dozen, depending on size.
