Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

This month’s Cookie Carnival recipe – the Chocolate Brownie Oatmeal Cookies that I recently posted here – was from the Quaker Oats website. When I went to the Quaker website to get that recipe, I decided to browse through some of the other recipes on the site. I came across this recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Cookies and a few others that I marked to try later.

In the past I have made cookies with chopped  up Peanut Butter Cups in them using a chocolate chip cookie dough as a base. This recipe is a little different because is has oatmeal in it.

I made a few small changes, increasing peanut butter, cocoa, and oatmeal, and adding peanut butter chips.

Krista’s Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

  • 1-1/2  cups Flour
  • 1/2  cup Cocoa
  • 1  teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4  teaspoon salt
  • 3  cups Oatmeal
  • 20 Miniature Peanut Butter Cup Candies, unwrapped and cut into quarters
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter Chips

Cream sugar, margarine and peanut butter. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add combined flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; mix well. Stir in oatmeal, candy and peanut butter chips.

Drop dough by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 12-14 minutes in a preheated 350°F oven. Remove from cookie sheets and cool completely on a wire rack.

    I’ve tried contacting you a half dozen times through email but every time it’s coming back as undeliverable -even when I hit “reply”. I’ve set up a new account for the Cookie Carnival: tamiskitchentabletable {AT} gmail {DOT} com.
