Home-tried Peanut Butter Cookies originated in the United States and date back to the 1910s


  • ½ cup smooth peanut butter, but chunky will be awesome. I only had smooth available.
  • ½ cup Demerara sugar
  • 1 XL egg
  • 1¼ cups Steel-cut oats
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
Home-tried Peanut Butter Cookies


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small bowl, use an electric mixer to cream peanut butter and brown sugar until fluffy.
  3. Beat in the egg.
  4. Add oats and baking soda to the creamed mixture, and mix well.
  5. Use your hands to make a ball, it’s rather crumbly, but do not worry, just knead it and it will eventually form a ball.
  6. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Roll dough into 2-inch balls, and press to flatten on the cookie sheet.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies turn slightly brown.
  9. Cool cookies on a rack, and store them in an airtight container.
