Ingredient Checklist


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

  • Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.

  • Beat peanut butter, butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat eggs, 1 at a time, into creamed butter, beating well before adding next egg; mix in vanilla extract and almond extract.

  • Slowly stir flour mixture into creamed butter mixture until fully incorporated; fold in oats using a wooden spoon. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and arrange 1-inch apart on a baking sheet. Press a fork into each cookie if desired.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If you find your dough oily, place the dough in the fridge for an hour until it firms up. This will ensure that you don't end up with pancake-shaped cookies because the butter/fat is melted. Alternately, consider sifting in additional flour.

Make sure that the cookie sheets you use are always cool when you place a new batch, so it doesn't melt the cookies before they make it to the oven.

If you want a lot of almond flavor to sweeten up the cookies, feel free to add a full teaspoon.

I love these cookies but I change it up a little for my taste. I use organic whole wheat pastry flour and stevia in place of the white sugar. I use almond butter which replaces the peanut butter well and no need to add almond flavoring. I add pieces of nuts and raisons, also. My family and neighbors love them. Read More

Absolutely fabulous and delicious easy to make. 4 stars just because we prefer more peanut taste. Read More

The almond extract adds a nice touch. I also added some almonds. None of the ingredients are too overpowering. Beating the sugars and fats until light and fluffy made the cookie turn out...light and fluffy. Read More

This was a great recipe. Just the right amount of peanut butter flavor just the right amount of sweetness. The almond flavor was a great touch too. Read More
