Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Who could resist a cookie that combines the tastes and textures of two old fashioned favorites? These chewy oatmeal cookies have a great peanut butter flavor.


3/4 cup chunky peanut butter


3/4 cup sugar

1 egg

1/4 cup milk

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

3 cups old-fashioned oats, uncooked

1 cup raisins

Honey Tips

Honey Bees Need Water

To keep their hives strong, beekeepers must place them in locations that will provide abundant nectar sources as well as water.


Preheat oven to 375°.
Using an electric mixer beat together peanut butter, honey and sugar until creamy. Add egg, milk, oil and vanilla. Mix until combined. Beat in flour and baking soda. Then add oats and raisins.
Drop batter by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 8 minutes until cookies are golden brown. Remove to rack and cool.
Yields: approx. 5 dozen cookies
