Chocolate Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe

We love homemade peanut butter cookies and oatmeal raisin cookies but what we love even more is this particular recipe where they are combined together. Sometimes oatmeal cookies on their own come out very dry...but with the addition of the peanut butter in this recipe they come out smoother and moist.

This recipe makes A LOT of cookies! I freeze at least half of them once I have them baked and cooled. They will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Chocolate Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe

6 cups oatmeal
4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 lb. butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup milk
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups smooth peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a large mixing bowl combine together the softened butter, granulated sugar, milk, cocoa powder and the salt. Stir in the smooth peanut butter, oatmeal, raisins and the vanilla extract.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Drop batter onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 11 minutes or until cookies are done. Remove from oven and let cool.
