Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these cookies. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Plain/all-purpose flour
- Quick porridge oats
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Cornflour/cornstarch: Makes for extra thick and soft cookies.
- Unsalted butter: Melted.
- Light brown sugar: Using mostly brown sugar results in extra soft and chewy cookies, as well as a subtle molasses flavour.
- Caster/granulated sugar
- Large egg
- Vanilla extract
- Smooth peanut butter: If the peanut butter is quite thick, just pop it in the microwave for a few seconds until runny.
- Chocolate chips: Milk, dark, or semi-sweet.
How to make Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
To make these cookies, simply grab a medium mixing bowl and whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cornflour, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter and sugars until combined.
Add the egg, vanilla extract, and peanut butter, and mix until combined.
Add the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
NOTE: The dough will be quite crumbly at this point. Add milk (1 tablespoon at a time) until the dough comes together and is more manageable. I usually need 3 – 5 tablespoons.
Roll the dough into 2-oz balls (or use a medium cookie scoop), and place onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes.
Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 – 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
