Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

How to make Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies from Nabeelah on Vimeo.

This is a reblog. Yes, I’ve turned everything into Tumblr. :B Credits for the recipe and video to Nabeelah, I’m just sharing and transcribing (frankly for my own convenience since I haven’t memorised the recipe even though I’ve made this a gazillion times in the UK) (and I think once in Malaysia ^^; ).

These cookies are yum because they are both chewy and crunchy, and not too sweet nor too chocolatey (although I do make mine with milk and/or white chocolate chips :boogie: ) (and even wafer chocolate, chopped finely). And this might just be my opinion, but a lot of “international” online recipes seem to taste better in the UK than when you make it in Malaysia (probably something to do with the ingredients and/or humidity), but I think these taste fine in either climate. 🙂

Slightly over-browned version of the cookies. As you can tell, I tend to go the lazy route and make big (tablespoon-sized) cookies. Heh.


  • 1/2 cup (125g) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 egg at room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Combine & mix dry ingredients: baking soda, salt, baking powder, flour.
  2. Put together butter and peanut butter in a mixing bowl. Stir to combine both butters.
  3. Put in white sugar and brown sugar. Cream the mixture with a mixer. It should look light in texture and pale in colour.
  4. Add the egg and mix some more. Add vanilla essence and mix.
  5. Dump the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Stir.
  6. Then add the oatmeal and stir to combine. Batter is ready, unless you would like to add chocolate chips or dried cranberries or nuts or whatever other upgrade.
  7. Prepare oven (170-175°C) and baking tins (grease or line them). Drop batter by teaspoonfuls on prepared tins. Be sure to allow space for spreading.
  8. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes or until they turn light brown. The cookies will set properly when they have cooled. Store in airtight containers.

Ok bye world. Salaams!

    Sounds like a good recipe, except I don’t like peanut butter. But maybe I should make some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies sometime soon.
