Oatmeal Peanut Butter (GF)

Thanks to a student for not only sharing these delicious cookies in class but also the recipe. Yeah, she actually came prepared with the recipe in hand. This was in her mother's recipe box going back to the 60's and enjoyed it throughout her childhood. She recently discovered that it was GF and wanted to share it. How cool for us!

I have since made it about a dozen times and everyone has enjoyed it and asked for the recipe. Sharing it here makes it much easier for everyone to always have it.

Cream together:

1 c. white sugar
1 c. brown sugar
½ c. butter


3 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla add butter/sugar mixture add
1 ½ c. creamy peanut butter


4 ½ c. oatmeal
2 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt

Add wet ingredients and stir well

Stir in:

½ c. chocolate chips
½ c. mini M&M’s

Chill overnight before baking for a more chewy texture.

Spray cookie sheets, scoop by the tablespoon and lightly flatten dough before baking. Bake at 350˚F, 10-12 minutes until edges begin to brown. Let set for 1-2 minutes, cool on racks.
