Recipe by Elaine L. Smith
"These were on the oatmeal box when I was just a small kid in the 50's When I make these for bake sales, they're always one of the first to go. Always attached a recipe to each package and everyone always seems to say.........OHHHH!!! I REMEMBER THESE!!! You can also use walnuts instead of the peanuts."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

We loved these!! Me and my kids just made these this morning. They are easy and fun to make with the little ones. Very chewy and crunchy... YUM! We made ours with the walnuts suggested in the description and kept everything just as it was. Wonderful!! Definitely a keeper recipe, thank you for sharing!
OMG, these are delicious! They taste like chewy Sausalito cookies. Use milk chocolate YUM!
I found these to be a bit different from the norm which I liked. Just remember to notify the "eaters" that they have peanuts and coconut in them...potentially very harmful for some with various allergies and colon problems.
I can't believe no one's reviewed this recipe! These cookies are crispy and yummy! I, as usual, made some changes: I ommitted the nuts and changed semi-sweet chip to milk chocolate chips. I urge you to try these cookies!
I followed the recipe exactly right down to the peanuts though they are good they seem to be lacking a bit of flavor. Next time I think I'll try using Butter Flavored Crisco instead of regular. When mixing in the chips, nuts, and oats I recommend using your hands. The dough is very crumbly, the last half of my dough I worked in 1 T of milk and it made the dough easier to work with and you definitely need to use your hands to form balls instead of dropping them by spoonfuls. The baking took the full 12 minutes.
WOW! These cookies were great! Followed the recipe exactly! Husband absolutely loved them! Will become a regular at our house.
What a surprisingly good recipe! I bring cookies to work every Wednesday and this is one of the bigger hits I've had. I don't like coconut so I used cornflakes and that was really good. I used the walnuts because Dad ate all the peanuts, but next time I want to use peanuts. I also want to add some peanut butter for more flavor and beacuse the batter was a little crumbly and the cookie a little bit dry. I think it will add flavor and help hold the cookie together better. My parents and grandparents loved them. They were a bigger hit than I expected.
Great results and rave reviews from everyone that had them at the potluck! I used peanuts, chopped up.. Didn't have shortening, so I used a cup of butter.. It worked just fine. These are excellent! Thanks!
