If you love peanut butter and chocolate together, you will love these Oatmeal Cookies Peanut Butter Chocolate Chips.

A couple of years ago, I reviewed a cookbook by New York Times Bestselling Author Susan Mallery.  I fell in love with her Oatmeal Cookies from her Fool’s Gold Cookbook.  They were indeed the best oatmeal cookies I had ever had.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Combination

My kids enjoy all desserts with the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, so I decided to replace the toffee and pecans with Peanut Butter Chips and Chocolate Chips.  They turned out terrific. If you have family members who enjoy this chocolate and peanut butter, you have to bake these cookies together.  You will be making memories that will last a lifetime.

Why are oatmeal cookies sometimes hard?

When you overmix your cookies, develop the gluten in the flour, which leads to a hard cookie.  If using an electric mixer, do not overmix your flour.  It is best to stop mixing even if you still see flour.  You can hand stir to incorporate the rest of the flour.  When making oatmeal cookies, always stir in your oatmeal and add-ins by hand. That way, you will not be over mixing your cookies.

How do you keep oatmeal cookies soft?

Let them cool for a couple of minutes before removing them from the baking sheet.  Serve the cookies warm.

How to store Oatmeal Cookies?

To keep oatmeal cookies from drying out, store them in a zip-lock bag or air-tight container with a piece of bread in it.

How to get a more Chewy Oatmeal Cookie?

Try replacing the white in the egg with an extra egg yolk.  The white tends to dry cookies out when baking.  The extra yolk will help keep your cookies moist and chewy.

Baking Cookie Tips

  • Use butter and eggs at room temperature.  You should be able to leave a fingerprint in the butter.
  • Whip the butter, shortening, and sugars until light and fluffy.
  • Do not over mix the flour!
  • Mix in the dry ingredients just until you do not see any dry ingredients, and everything is incorporated.
  • Use parchment paper – I love parchment paper when baking.  Once you remove the cookies from the oven, slide the parchment paper off the baking sheet with the cookies still on it.
  • Use an ice cream scoop when scooping out your cookies.  This way, they will all be the same size and will bake evenly.

Refrigerate cookies at least 20 minutes before baking.

  • If you do not refrigerate them or even freeze them, cookies will spread out.
    Freezing Cookie Dough – Scoop the cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  You can put the cookies closer together on the baking sheet when freezing them than when you are baking them.  If you scoop the cookie dough out first and then freeze it, you do not have a problem with the cookie dough being as hard as a rock, and you cannot scoop it out of a container.  After scooping out the cookie dough, place the baking pan in the freezer until the cookies are frozen.  Place frozen cookies into large freezer zip lock bags and store them in the freezer.  Freezing the cookies helps the cookies not spread when baking them.  The cookies do not spread out so much.  Also, you will have cookies on hand in case of an emergency.
  • Do not overcook your cookies.  Once you remove the cookies from the oven, they will continue to bake.

Types of Oats

  • Steel-Cut Oats these are oats that have been cut into small pieces but not rolled into flakes. They are more chewy and nutty than rolled oats. They are used in muesli and slow-cooked oatmeal.
  • Rolled Oats are the most common type of oats. It is also called old-fashioned oats. Rolled oats are steamed, rolled, and flaked, so they cook quickly. Old-fashioned oats are perfect for making oatmeal cookies.  They provide a chewy, nutty texture to oatmeal cookies and are the oat of choice for granola bars, cookies, and muffins.
  • Instant Oats consist of very thin, pre-cooked oat flakes that only need hot water to cook. They are often sold in packages with other ingredients added to them.
  • Quick Cook – If you want stove-cooked oats but are in a hurry, quick cook oats are a great option. They cook in one minute.

The most significant differences in oatmeal are the shape, texture, and cooking times.
