Easy Peasy Peanut Butter Oat Cookies

My new go to cookie recipe. Soft, yet chewy, crispy round the edges and so easy to make. I bet most people would have the necessary ingredients at hand.

I use maple, you could use honey, agave or date syrup. Do use oats. I haven’t tested other nut butters or tahini but I BET they would work just fine. Just make sure that it’s 100% nuts or seeds, a little salt is just fine.

You don’t need to do any melting, blending, processing, blitzing… just a little whisking, mixing and folding. They are made in 10 minutes and baked in 10 minutes more. Do let them cool for at least ten minutes because like any good cookie they need to firm up on the tray when they come out of the oven.

They keep pretty well for a couple of days. I haven’t managed to make a batch last any longer than that!

If you don’t want to add chocolate chips, I’m not sure why you wouldn’t!? Feel free to mix in some chunks of nuts, dried fruit or maybe some little mini smarties or m n m’s if you have some on hand for a “monster cookie” as I think they’re referred to more commonly in the U.S.

Happy Baking and cookie munching!

By Serves: 8 - 10 Prep Time: 5 - 10 minutes Cooking Time: 10 minutes


  • 130g smooth peanut butter

Mix together peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla in a bowl.


Add the oats, almonds and baking soda.


Stir well.


Fold in the chocolate chips.


Divide mixture up into 8 - 10 cookies; I like using an ice cream scoop to get evenly sized cookies. Place onto a baking paper lined baking tray.


Flatten a little and shape with your hands.

Allow to cool on the tray.


Store in a seal tight container for up to three days.
