These peanut butter oatmeal cookies are a nice change of pace from the usual peanut butter cookie. My husband never liked peanut butter cookies until I made him this recipe.

48 cookies


  • 1 cup peanut butter

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup shortening

  • ½ cup margarine, softened

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Beat peanut butter, brown sugar, white sugar, shortening, and margarine in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until well blended.

  3. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl; stir into creamed mixture until incorporated. Mix in oats until just combined. Drop teaspoonfuls of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  4. Bake cookies in the preheated oven until just lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Do not overbake. Cool and store in an airtight container.
