Big fat peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are easy, thick, and exploding with peanut butter, oats, and chocolate chips to satisfy your cookie cravings.
Tomorrow, May 15th, is National Chocolate Chip Day!!! A holiday just as important as any other on our calendars, so we MUST bake cookies.
A few years ago we celebrated with chewy chocolate chip cookies. Last year we celebrated with soft & chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. This year we celebrate with PEANUT BUTTER. As if there’s any other way to celebrate chocolate?
A cookie to end all other cookies, these big fat peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are a mouthful. They’re unapologetically fat and thick with loads of peanut butter, chewy oats, and of course—the star of this week’s holiday—chocolate chips. Inspiring today’s cookie recipe is the cover of Sally’s Cookie Addiction. My monster cookie recipe, found in chapter 2 of my latest cookbook, combines chocolate chips, peanut butter, oats, and M&Ms. I skipped the rainbow candies so the focus remains on the peanut butter and chocolate chip pairing.
These massive peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies surprise me every time I bake them, which, in the past year, is more than I care to admit! As the cookie dough bakes, I confidently exclaim that these cookies “surely won’t be as thick as last time.” As I stare at them finishing in the oven—because we all do that—I’m overcome with satisfaction that not only will I eat the thickest peanut butter oatmeal cookies ever, I’ll eat my words too.
