I used this as a starting point I had limited ingredients. I used a fork to mix everything. The major different I did was instead of brown sugar I use 1/4 cup of raw honey (yellow). They were not crumbly at all. I used extra virgin online oil on the cooking sheet so it would not stick. They almost tasted like little breads. I was worried they would be shriveled but they actually rose and were nice and fluffy and soft. I baked them 11 mins at 360 degrees. I got 7 cookies out of the batch.

Only five stars if you use Old Fashioned Oats. Don't use 1 minute Oats. Also melt the peanut butter for 30 secs in microwave and only use 2 tsp of brown sugar. It won't be too sweet and it's healthier. Brown sugar is super sweet. But make sure to use the right amount of peanut butter.

I love making these cookies for my dad, he tries to grab a bite of the dough any chance he can get! I changed the peanut butter in the recipe for our liking. My dad's favorite peanut butter is the creamy honey kind. I use that instead of chunky peanut butter, which makes the dough easier to scoop with. I would also add honey into the dough to make it sweeter, which also helps the dough become less crumbly. We are not too much of a crunchy texture fan, but we would chop roasted peanuts, or cashews and throw them in the dough.

I made about 14 cookies from these ingredients. Maybe I have a sweeter tooth than usual but I thought a touch more of brown sugar, fruit, etc. could help it. Otherwise, this recipe makes a crumbly, good, easy, quick and yummy oatmeal peanut butter cookie.

Good base recipe, glad I'm learning to read reviews first. Made them into milky cookies with a sachet of mother's milk tea and made a couple more changes based on comments. So much better than drinking that tea. Also I'm leaving this website for l a c t a t i o n being "offensive language"

I doubled the recipe and found it to be too crumbly. Added 1/4 cup safflower oil and 1/4 cup agave. Was perfect! ! Thanks for the 'base' as well.
