Instructions Checklist
  • Place oats in a blender or food processor and pulse until oats resemble flour. Transfer oats to a large bowl and stir in flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  • Beat butter, milk, peanut butter, white sugar, and brown sugar in another bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Beat in vanilla extract with the last egg; stir in oat mixture until well blended. Fold in peanut butter chips, mixing just enough to evenly combine. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Drop 1-inch spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.

  • Bake in preheated oven until cookie centers are set, 10 to 12 minutes.

Not in recent memory have I been so disappointed with a recipe. I’ve always believed it’s just not good common sense not to use your own common sense. My common sense (which I foolishly ignored) told me a half cup of milk just wasn’t right. And it wasn’t. I should have trusted that, followed through, and added milk as necessary, if at all. I ended up with glop. Risking destroying the integrity of the baked cookie I had to add another full cup of flour just to have the dough have some resemblance to cookie dough, and even then it was still sticky. After chilling it in the fridge, it was still sticky, but I’ve made other chocolate cookies where the dough was sticky and they turned out fine. Not this one. While the photo I’ve submitted of these cookies doesn’t look half bad, it is total deception. I handed a cookie to Hubs for a taste test, keeping my comments to myself for the time being. After taking a bite he handed the cookie back to me and with an apologetic look on his face said, “These are bad.” I tasted it too and agreed that outside of sweetness and a faint peanut butter flavor it was tasteless – this in spite of a full cup of very good cocoa powder. I threw out the whole batch, the baked cookies as well as the unbaked dough - effectively, that means one star, inedible. I’m not sure, had the dough called for an appropriate amount of flour, that it would have even made a difference in the final result. Read More

I followed the directions almost exactly (my husband asked me to add some almonds walnuts and a few chocolate chips to the oats in the blender) and these came out great. I was definitely a little weary reading the first person who rated them. If you are too just add 1/4 cup of milk at a time. I used the full 1/2 cup of milk. I did not use the peanut butter chips or any other chips other than the few that went into the blender. These came out delicious. My husband and children are very happy! Read More

Overall a good cookie. I undercooked them just a touch to achieve a more chewy consistency (rather than cake-like). I used 1/2 cup bread flour and 1/2 cup all purpose flour to for a more chewy crisp on the edges cookie! Read More

If you soft bake them they're like peanut butter chocolate lava cake cookies. Fantastic for chocoholics. My peanut butter chips were stale so I had to use semisweet chips. The batter is so good. This is being added to my short list of favorite desserts. Read More
