A few weeks ago, I posted a flourless cookies recipe. This is one of my favorite recipes and I make the cookies almost every week. I use Skippy peanut butter and the cookie dough is a bit on the greasy side but the cookies turn out really good. I’ve been experimenting with this recipe to give it a bit more “substance.” Tonight, I tried adding 1 cup of oatmeal to the cookie dough. The dough was slightly on the drier side so I added 1 egg white. You could try adding an entire egg but my husband doesn’t want to have too much egg yolk in his diet so I used only the egg white. This new recipe, peanut butter oatmeal cookies, turned out very good so I’m posting the recipe again with the added variation.


1 cup brown sugar
1 cup peanut butter
2 eggs + 1 egg white
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease cookie sheets or line (ungreased) with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, blend the brown sugar and peanut butter.
  3. Add the eggs and mix to blend.
  4. Spoon in baking soda and vanilla and mix about 1 minute.
  5. Pour in chocolate chips and blend by hand.
  6. Drop cookies 1 heaping teaspoonful at a time on cookie sheets, leaving 1 1/2? between them to allow for spreading.
  7. Bake 8-11 minutes.

    Made these this evening. I used two eggs and 2 tablespoons of applesauce and 1/3 of a mashed banana and also added 1/3 cup of Pamela’s GF
    Baking mix! I ran the oatmeal threw the food processor and I chopped up the choc chips with a food chopper. I also used chunky PB. Very yummy cookies! Thanks!

    Where does it say put in oatmeal? or is the “mix” in step 3 referring to oatmeal?
