Feature: Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies -Two Great Tastes in One Easy Drop Cookie

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies are not only an easy cookie recipe but also a combination of two classic drop cookies in one: peanut butter cookies and oatmeal cookies.

Talk about the perfect lunchbox addition ... for several reasons. First, this easy cookie recipe makes a several dozen cookies per batch. The cookies will last for several lunches (and maybe even dinners.)

You can also freeze baked cookies or even freeze all or part of the cookie dough to bake later. Plus, the cookies pack well.

The Elf will even go so far as to point out that Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies have “healthier” ingredients compared with other cookie recipes … oatmeal and peanut butter.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 11-15 minutes
Makes about 4-5 dozen cookies
