Equipment Needed


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose baking flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup of peanut butter baking chips
  • 1 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


In a large bowl with a hand mixer or a stand mixer, beat the butter until it is light and fluffy.

Add the brown sugar and white sugar and beat well, scraping sides and bottom.

Add eggs and vanilla, beat well until well combined.

Add the flour but don’t mix it in.

Add the salt, baking powder, and baking soda to the flour.

Now mix in the flour.

Add the oats and walnuts to the bowl.

Mix in gently.

Add the peanut butter chips and chocolate chips and mix until everything is combined. Don’t over mix.

Chill the dough in the fridge for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop these onto the pan.

Leave at least a couple inches in between each ball of dough.

Bake at 350 for 13-14 minutes, until the cookies are golden on the edges.

Set to the side on a cooling rack to cool

Those look so yummy that I wanted to pull one off the screen! I grew up on a recipe we called Cowboy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. The recipes aren’t even close. I guess cowboys like variety! LOL!
