Sweet Tooth: My Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

It’s National Cookie Month and this Sunday, October 28th, happens to be National Cookie Day… So in honor of these random cookie holidays I thought I’d share one of my favorite cookie recipes: Oatmeal Cookies with Salted Peanut Butter Chips. (Yum!)

Oatmeal Cookies with Salted Peanut Butter Chips

Makes 2 dozen cookies


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt


  1. Preheat over to 375-degrees.
  2. Cream together butter and both sugars in a medium bow.
  3. Mix in eggs and then the vanilla.
  4. In a separate bow, mix together baking soda, salt, cinnamon and flour.
  5. Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture until combined.
  6. Add in oats.
  7. Mix in peanut butter chips.
  8. Scoop teaspoon-sized balls of dough onto greased cookie sheets and press the balls flat using a fork.
  9. Sprinkle less-than-a-pinch of coarse salt over each cookie.
  10. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

I suggest serving these cookies as dessert after chowing down on my Stuffed Bell Peppers. It’s the perfect date-night duo since the Stuffed Peppers won’t leave you feeling bloated and the cookies will smell your place with a lovely cinnamon scent… Can you say fall?

Are you going to give these cookies a try? What’s your favorite type of cookie?
