Or in this case, maybe it’s my love for peanut butter! Not just in cookies as you can see by my other peanut butter based recipes like my Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies or Rick’s Peanut Butter Fudge. I also love Oatmeal cookies so making Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies was a no brainer for me.
Just like almost every other peanut butter cookie recipe, these are pretty easy to make. Just a bunch of ingredients you already have in your pantry and 15 minutes to bake.
These cookies are soft and moist unlike my other crunchy peanut butter cookies posted on this site.
