Sharing is caring!

Don’t let the long name of these Peanut Butter Oatmeal Raisin cookies fool you, they are really easy to make and  use every day ingredients.

You can mix these oatmeal raisin cookies up for lunches, faster than you can drive to the store to buy something.  I don’t even bother using a mixer, and just whip them up old school style with a wooden spoon.  You will find these peanut butter oatmeal raisin cookies are a bit moister and softer than my regular oatmeal raisin cookies.   If you love chewy cookies your going to really enjoy these ones.  They aren’t as sweet as my other oatmeal raisin cookie recipe, but sooo good,  Did I mention your going to love the chewy texture?

This  cookie recipe is a bit smaller than most of my other cookie recipes, it makes two dozen large cookies.  Its the perfect size for smaller families and empty nesters.  For larger families with teenagers  just double the simple ingredients.

After all that, lets get started.
