These Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies are great with a glass of cold milk! With their peanutty flavor, these scrumptious cookies hit the spot. Plus, they couldn't be easier to make! —Marilyn Blankschien, Clintonville, Wisconsin

"This is what I did:

-almost cup of smooth peanut butter (the too sweet kind)
-2c quick oats
-teaspoon baking powder
-half a cup of flour
-2 eggs
-2/3c brown sugar
-3 tbsp olive oil
-1 tbsp milk
-thumb size bit of ginger chopped into bits about 3 grains of rice size
-1 apricot and 6 cherries chopped into chunks about 1/5 of a cherry size
turned out tasting good. cooked about 9 min. probably should be about 13 min as they were too soft... but maybe thats just the recipe. anyway we were happy
thanks for the inspiration, especially the other commentators"

"I followed the recipe. I found this cookie to be delicate and scrumptious, good peanut taste. I read the directions to fast and didn't flatten them a bit. So they were round balls. They don't spread. And I doubled the recipe and came out fine. A good peanut and oatmeal cookie."

"Very yummy, only reason why it's not a one star! Great taste for some nice CRUMBLES. Which is all this turned into. Luckily I read the comments before making these and added things to make them less dry. Good recipe but like I said very crumbly."

"I have made these multiple times. I always add a 1/2 c of unsweetened apple sauce. I've also added well drained crushed pineapple or chunks and unsweetened coconut shreds, apple chunks and cinnamon, made a depression in the top and filled it with jam/jelly's, and dried fruit bits with potato chip pieces. They always come out wonderfully for me"

"I made them and they tasted great! I added chocolate chips! I will double the recipe next time and add walnuts too. As it is, they made 1 dozen, palm sized cookies. The only way this could've made two dozen would be to make them very tiny, like silver dollar size."

"Boo. These cookies were so incredibly dry--nothing I had ever baked before. Going forward it will need a whole lot of tweaking."

"I used creamy peanut butter, quick oats, a little box of raisins, 1/2 tsp of vanilla and 1 tsp of honey, everything the same. I did double the recipe including what I added extra, not the raisins though. They were good, husband loved them and I will try other things that I have read in the comments next time. Over all, it is a simple recipe that tasted good and can be adjusted to what you like."
