Oat-Rageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

SECRET INGREDIENT: peanut butter

Some people like oatmeal cookies. Some like chocolate chip cookies. Yet others prefer peanut butter cookies. This recipe combines all three! The peanut butter in the dough makes them extra rich and delicious.


To keep your cookies from burning, stack two baking sheets together. This creates a layer of insulation that protects the cookies and promotes more even heating.

  1. i have had this recipe for years and lost it recently. i was so excited to find it on your site! Thank you Readers Digest!

  2. I’m used to sites that offer a “printer friendly” option to shorten the pages used and yet increase the Font Size (once al the ads are not included there is plenty of room for big print).
    The recipe sounds wonderful and I can’t wait to try it!

  3. Your website is very user UNfriendly.  When I printed this recipe, it took 3 pages.  Why have so many blank lines between steps.
