**What You’ll Need**

*Ingredient Notes*

– **Oatmeal**: Use old-fashioned rolled oats to give these cookies lots of chew. Quick oats are more broken down.
– **Peanut butter**: Creamy peanut butter is best for flavor without excessive crunch.
– **Chocolate chips**: Semi-sweet adds chocolatey flavor without too much sweetness, as we’re already adding sugar to these cookies.
– **Butter**: Use unsalted since we are adding salt separately.

**Add-ins and Substitutions**

– *Substitute the oats*: You can make this recipe with steel-cut or quick oats as well. The cookies will just have a slightly different texture and chew.
– *Make them allergen-friendly*: You can sub the butter for plant-based, the flour for gluten-free all-purpose flour, and the peanut butter for sunflower-seed butter to avoid allergens.
– *Add raisins*: Make these cookies even tastier with the sweet-tart flavor of raisins added in.
– *Make your own brown sugar*: If you haven’t got brown sugar, make your own by adding molasses to white sugar and mixing until it’s as light or dark as you want it.

**How to Make Chewy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies**

– **Cream the sugar and butter**: In another bowl, mix the two sugars with the softened butter using an electric hand mixer. Beat for about a minute on medium-high speed, or until the ingredients are well-creamed together.
– **Add the eggs and vanilla**: Add in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract, and beat again until combined.
– **Mix in the peanut butter**: Now add the peanut butter to the mixture and beat at high speed.
– **Sift the dry ingredients**: Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Then mix it into the cookie batter.
– **Pro Tip**: When you measure the flour, spoon it into the measuring cup and level it with a knife. Scooping packs too much in and can cause your cookies to be dry.
– **Add in the oats and chocolate chips**: Pour in the chocolate chips and oats, and mix well.“`html
Steps to make Chewy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies: add the oats and chocolate chips, then mix with a spatula.

  • Scoop out the dough. Scoop out the cookie dough with a cookie scoop, placing the mounds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. If you prefer, you can roll each one into a ball so they bake into rounder cookies.
  • Add more chocolate chips on top. On top of each cookie, add some extra chocolate chips, about 1/2 cup total will do.
  • Bake. Bake the peanut butter oatmeal cookies for 10 minutes on the center rack at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Enjoy!

Recipe Tips

  • Use room temperature eggs- The eggs will blend better with the other ingredients if they are not cold, giving the cookies better texture.
  • Roll the dough balls in your hand- If you like your cookies nice and round, then roll them with your hand after scooping them so they bake into circles. But this step is optional.
  • The chocolate chips are optional- If you don’t have or want to add the chocolate chips, you can skip them. But these cookies are so much tastier with some chocolate in them, so I recommend not leaving this ingredient out.
  • Bake on the center rack- The center rack gets the evenest heat distribution, baking your cookies from all sides and ensuring they are cooked just enough, but not too much, which would affect their chewiness.

Can I use instant oats instead?

You can, but it won’t have the same texture. Because instant oats are broken down more so they will cook faster into oatmeal, they don’t hold onto their shape and texture as well as old-fashioned oats, so you lose some of that great chew. But taste-wise, they’re pretty much the same, so you can substitute instant oats in this recipe.

What is the secret to chewy cookies?

The secret to chewy cookies is high protein flour. This allows more moisture to be absorbed, creating more gluten for a cookie that is elastic and chewy. Baking soda also helps make cookies tender and chewy.
