Peanut Butter Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Secret Recipe Club

It’s time for one of my favorite posts of the month. I love The Secret Recipe Club because I have discovered so many fabulous blogs from the link ups four Mondays a month.This month I was assigned Meet the Swans which is one of the original blogs. This is a new to me blog so as soon as I received the email I dived right into the recipe archives.

Krista has an amazing selection of desserts and this German Brownie Torte, the Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars, and these Rain Doughnuts  were calling my name. Since I seem to have a slight thing for chocolate and peanut butter, peanut butter and oatmeal and chocolate, peanut butter, and oatmeal I decided these  Choco-Oat Peanut Butter Cookies would be perfect to make.

I made a couple of small changes to the recipe. The original called for a homemade fudge sauce and I used plain old chocolate syrup because I had that on hand.  I also chilled the dough for a couple of hours before baking to the let the butter harden  to minimize cookie spread.


Peanut Butter Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies


  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


Cream together the butter and sugars in a mixing bowl until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until creamy. Beat in the chocolate syrup and peanut butter until  well mixed.

In another bowl mix together the flour, baking soda, salt and oats. Add to the chocolate/peanut butter mixture and stir to combine. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Cover with plastic wrap or place in a lidded bowl and chill for 1-2 hours. Bake spoonfuls of dough on lightly greased cookie sheets in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Cool on sheet 2-3 minutes then finish cooling on racks.

These have become one of my favorite cookies and I will be making them time and time again.

    I love peanut butter oatmeal cookies so much. Adding chocolate would be the icing on the cake, so to speak.

    Wow, now that’s a combo I can get behind! What a great SRC pick. I may have drooled a little just thinking about the chocolate peanut butter goodness:)
