I love oatmeal cookies and peanut butter cookies, so I was thrilled to find a recipe that combines the two! What makes this recipe even more exciting is the addition of chocolate chips; the pairing of peanut butter and chocolate is always divine. These cookies are easy to put together and in less than a hour, you'll have a batch of fresh and scrumptious cookies. I served them with a scoop of ice cream, but a glass milk would be even better. If you love the texture of oatmeal cookies and can never get enough peanut butter and chocolate, keep reading for the recipe.
