Peanut Butter Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

This giveaway has ended.  Congratulations to Laura on winning!

I have learned peanut butter is one of those foods I can’t really get enough of. I never tire of it no matter how much I eat. In fact, I sometimes dream about grabbing a jar and a spoon and simply stuffing my face. It’s just that good.

One of the other reasons I like peanut butter so much is that it pairs so well with so many other flavors and foods that I never tire of it. Not many ingredients are as versatile as peanut butter.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

It makes an awesome breakfast stirred into oatmeal or as the star of a granola bar. For lunch you can’t go wrong with classic PBJ. Even when it comes to dinner, it shines in Thai peanut sauce. Don’t even get me started on dessert. How many ingredients can you think of that can be used in so many different ways?

Okay, now I’m hungry, and I bet you are too. Luckily, I have a recipe that is sure to conquer that hunger: Peanut Butter Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

Oatober

My friends at Peanut Butter & Company are celebrating #Oatober by partnering with Bob’s Red Mill (another of my favorite companies) to celebrate the wonderful match that is peanut butter and oatmeal.

When I think of peanut butter, the very first thing that comes to mind (other than that whole spoon and jar thing) is cookies. Luckily enough, when I think of oatmeal, I dream of oatmeal raisin cookies and finding the perfect recipe for them. Combining the two into these cookies turned out to be the cookie of my dreams.

Whether you eat this on the go for breakfast, as a hearty snack, or a comforting dessert, you need these cookies in your life.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Dense, chewy, and just a little gooey, the Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter is the star here, complemented by tender oats and lots of juicy raisins. They are pretty healthy and full of flavor, so perfect for this time of year. If you’re looking for an indulgent treat, melt a couple marshmallows on top in the microwave. Not that I’ve tried that or anything 😉  Plus, if you use gluten free oats, the cookies can easily be made gluten free!

Peanut Butter & Company has so generously offered to give one lucky reader two jars of their killer peanut butter: Smooth Operator and Cinnamon Raisin Swirl, as well as a bag of Bob’s Red Mill organic rolled oats.
