Home-tried Peanut Butter Cookies

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


  1. ½ cup smooth peanut butter, but chunky will be awesome. I only had smooth available.
  2. ½ cup Demerara sugar
  3. 1 XL egg
  4. 1¼ cups Steel-cut oats
  5. ¾ teaspoon baking soda


Home-tried Peanut Butter Cookies


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a small bowl, use an electric mixer to cream peanut butter and brown sugar until fluffy.
  • Beat in the egg.
  • Add oats and baking soda to creamed mixture, and mix well.
  • 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.
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll dough into 2-inch balls, and press to flatten on the cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies turn slightly brown.
  • Cool cookies on a rack, and store in an airtight container.
