Makes 1 dozen

Ingredients Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Cookies

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter

  • ¾ cup granulated sugar

  • ¼ cup light brown sugar, packed

  • ¼ cup whole milk

  • 3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • 6 Tbsp creamy peanut butter

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1½ cups quick-cooking oats

Directions

Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Cookies

  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.

  2. Place the butter, sugars, milk, cocoa powder, and salt in a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat, making sure to stir often until the butter is melted and everything is well combined. Bring the mixture to a rolling boil and allow it to boil for 1 minute stirring occasionally.

  3. Remove from the heat, and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla extract until combined. Stir in the oats and mix until all of the oats are evenly coated with the mixture and everything is well combined. Allow the mixture to cool slightly for about 5 minutes.

  4. Drop the mixture by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet. Allow the cookies to cool at room temperature for about 1 hour until hardened. Refrigerate in an airtight container (if the cookies even make it to a container without being gobbled up!
