Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

in #hive-1205862 months ago (edited)

I used a basic oatmeal peanut butter recipe and changed a few things. I left out the cup of brown sugar and added 1/4 cup of molasses. Instead of a cup of butter I used a cup of good old fashioned lard.

I blended sugar, molasses, peanut butter, and lard together until smooth. I added the eggs and blended until incorporated.

I mixed dry ingredients together, flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Add chocolate chips and raisins

Add a couple cups of dry ingredients to the wet and mix and repeat or dump all the dry ingredients on top of the wet ingredients and mix with your hands 😂😂😂 My way 😎

Heat oven to 350 degrees and bake 15 minutes.


I’m on a keto diet but my husband is not, he mows the lawn, does dishes, and vacuums for cookies! I’d bake him cookies even if he was a slacker, I love him 😍🍪


2 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup of lard
1 cup of organic chunky peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup of molasses
2 eggs
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of each, raisins and chocolate chips


  1. Mix all dry ingredients together including chocolate chips and raisins.

  2. Use a big bowl to mix wet ingredients together, sugar, molasses and lard first and then add eggs.

  3. Roll into a ball and use a fork or your thumb to flatten the cookie out. I like leaving mine in a round ball.

  4. Heat oven to 350°F

  5. Bake for 12 or 15 minutes, depending on your preferences.

I love to eat hand made cookies, its very popular from all over..

In England cookies are called biscuits, I didn’t know this, but still tasty no matter what they’re called.

Good substitions you used in your oatmeal peanut butter cookies recipe! What impact on flavor does using lard instead of butter have? 🍪👩‍🍳🍪

Yours is the kind of cookie dough I would enjoy eating raw before it goes into the oven to bake. So did your gem of a husband appreciate the yummy cookie treats? Probably got him to do extra chores!😀

I vaguely recall making oatmeal raisin no-bake cookies at some summer session my parents had me in when I was little girl. Feels like it was many decades ago!

Have a terrific evening!💫🌛

Nina, the lard gives cookies a crispy taste and the dough is tasty, it’s not as soft as bitter dough. My Husband is a happy man, he is pure Dutch, grew up in the Nederlands,
. The Dutch are tall hobbits and love anything tasty, homey, and beautiful 😁

They look really good, thanks for the recipe 💓💓

Thank you, best served with coffee ☕️ 🍪

That look like super tasty cookies 🤗

They are and cookies are a great alternative currency 😂😂😂😂
