Original recipe makes 2 dozen Change Servings


  1. Mix flour, oats, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat peanut butter, brown sugar, butter, honey, egg, and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Stir dry ingredients into the peanut butter mixture in 2 additions. Stir in chopped chocolate.
  3. Cover and refrigerate until dough is firm and no longer sticky, about 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter 2 heavy large baking sheets.
  5. With hands, roll 1 heaping tablespoonful of dough for each cookie into 1 3/4 inch diameter ball. Arrange cookies on prepared baking sheets, spacing 2 1/2 inches apart.
  6. Bake cookies until puffed, beginning to brown on top and still very soft to touch, about 12 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Using metal spatula, transfer cookies to rack and cool completely. (Can be made 2 days ahead. Store in airtight container at room temperature.)

These were very good! I made the following slight changes: creamy peanut butter instead of crunchy because we're not crazy about nuts in things, white whole wheat flour for 1 cup of the all-purpose, a little over 1 cup of semi-sweet chips for the chunks, and I upped the vanilla to 1 T. instead of 1 t.

It is a nice recipe, but i coudn't taste the peanutbutter at is full. Maybe I have to put more peanutbutter next time. It was easy to make, my son (3 years) loved the cookie.

Everybody I know who loves a peanutbutter cookie loves these. These are the first to disappear. Cookes bake up moist are not flat.

These cookies were great. I added Reese's Pieces and used chocolate chips.

My new favorite cookie!! Its a thicker cookie, but not to thick. The only thing I changed was by adding half a bag of mini choc. chips instead of the choc. chunks.

Delicious and moist! I used a little more peanut butter and more chocolate chunks, baked for 10-1/2 minutes, and made sure they were pretty flat before I put them in the oven (they don't spread much). I didn't have time to refrigerate them, which is probably why the shorter bake time worked. Talk about a yummy cookie! Thanks!

Great cookies! Made some alterations that came out fabulous. I added 1/2 tsp. coconut extract and 1 tsp. ground cinnamon. Also, I combined equal amounts of creamy peanut butter and marshmallow cream and stuffed the cookies before baking. Absolutely decadent!

This dough was so easy to work with. It was easy to form and made beautifully shaped cookies. I love the addition of the oats. My family only requested that I use milk chocolate next time. **This recipe makes way more cookies than it claims.
