These are very easy cookies to make. I did make some adjustments to the recipe. I used smooth peanut butter,semi sweet and milk chocolate chips, increased to 2 cups( we love our chocolate chips) 1/2tablespoon of vanilla and 3/4 cup of old fashion oats.

I saw the rating and quickly printed out the recipe. When I went to make them, however, is when I saw the oatmeal listed. I went ahead and made them anyway according to the recipe. They turned out really well and everyone really liked them. However, the oats gave it a grainy texture that I didn't care for. Even though I let them cool on the tray as directed before transferring them to a wire rack, I still had some crumbling problems. Overall they were pretty good and even made 30 cookies, but next time I'll probably just add chocolate chips to a peanut butter cookie recipe.

This recipe was really easy to make and pretty tasty. I made two different batches, one with oats and one without bc I made for work and knew someone was allergic to oats. Both turned out great. I personally liked the ones with out the oats the best, but both were good.

this is an EXCELLENT RECIPE!! I was able to produce a more CRUNCHY textured cookie without burning my cookies by just baking them a little longer. I actually produced soft, medium and crunchy textured cookies from the same batch of dough. (I made a double batch) Everyone is happy!! I prefer dunking my crunchy cookies in milk where the kids like them softer. I followed the recipe as written except I used choco peanut-butter chips.

My hubby asked me to bake some cookies for him to take to work, I gave these a try. One word, delicious. My hubby liked them so much he said "these are too good for me to take to work". Except for doubling the recipe I made exactly as written. I did take the advice of one reviewer and allowed the cookies to cool, on the cookie sheet, before transferring to a cooling rack, I had no problem at all with crumbling. Will definitely be making these again.

Excellent cookie with good peanut butter flavor. I used hershey mini kisses in place of semi sweet chips. I also used whole wheat pastry flour instead of all purpose. They turned out lovely. I think it is a good size batch.

Love cookies?? Oatmeal? Peanut butter! Chocolate chip?? Have a all three in this one easy to make cookie. It combines the taste of these three beloved cookie classics. No need to fridge dough. As a volunteer field editor with Taste of Hime I enjoy recipes that use classic ingredients with a new twist.

Very good! I didn't have chunky peanut butter on hand so just used the creamy peanut butter. Turned out great.

Good cookies. Not having chunky peanut butter, I chopped up some peanuts and added them along with the chocolate chips. Easy to make.

This recipe was great and very simple. I love the peanut butter and chocolate flavors together. I made these gluten free by using gluten free flour and oats. I will be making these again!
