These thick, no flour peanut butter oatmeal cookies are full of Reese’s Pieces and peanut butter cups, with some peanuts thrown in for a little crunch!
Before we started this recipe website, I hated nuts. I didn’t even like peanuts very much, which of course is closely related to peanut butter. Now I like a variety of nuts. I like almonds, pistachios, peanuts, and sometimes walnuts. I like to incorporate nuts into my recipes once in awhile, but I’m not going to go as far as saying they’re anything like smooth peanut butter and chocolate.
My dad, however, loves nuts and always wants me to throw some nuts, any kind of nut, in my cookies. I decided to surprise him with some of his favorite cookies, peanut butter oatmeal cookies…nuts included.
Speaking of peanut butter and chocolate, what’s your favorite thing to put in cookies? One of my favorites is Reese’s Pieces. And not only do these peanut butter oatmeal cookies have Reese’s Pieces, but they have my FAVORITE type of candy that consists of peanut butter and chocolate. Yes, you guessed it- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
This fantastic peanut butter oatmeal cookie recipe is my mix of Reese’s world and oatmeal-nut world. The peanuts inside along with the Reese’s just makes this cookie a Triple Threat…bursting with peanut butter chocolate goodness. And, you can never go wrong with oats. It makes for a soft, chewy, thick, perfect cookie.
The simplicity of these peanut butter oatmeal makes it stand out. There’s no need to refrigerate the dough before baking. Just whip them up and bake them, and you’ll be eating the crunchy nuttiness, soft oatmeal,peanut butter and chocolate cookie in no time.
They also make a big batch and freeze really well. When you pull these out of the freezer and let them defrost, they’ll be just as soft as if you never had frozen them.
What could be better for a loaded oatmeal cookie lover??
Mmmm…just look how thick those are!
