Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

For the eclectic eater, these rich and fudgy double chocolate peanut butter cookies are ideal! Neither stand mixer nor chilling required!


– 1 cup unsweetened natural peanut butter* – 2 large egg – 1/2 cup pure maple syrup – 3 Tbsp avocado oil** – 1 tsp pure vanilla extract – 1 ½ cups oat – 1/2 cup cocoa powder – 1 tsp baking powder – 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon optional – 1/2 tsp sea salt – ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips ***


Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a large cookie sheet with parchment.

Step 1

Peanut butter, eggs, pure maple syrup, avocado oil, and vanilla extract should form a sticky mixture in a large bowl. 

Step 2

I use a fork, but you can use an electric hand mixer. To stir peanut butter, microwave it for 30–60 seconds if it's cold.

Step 3

In the bowl, mix oats, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon, and sea salt into a thick dough. Mix in chocolate chips.

Step 4

Drop mounds of dough on the baking pan to make any size cookies. I can make 20 small or 9 large cookies with my recipe. 

Step 5

The cookies bake together without spreading. Shape the dough before baking. Chocolate chips can be added to cookie dough balls. Small cookies can be made with cookie scoops.

Step 6

Large cookies bake in 8–11 minutes, small ones in 6–8. Serve cookies after a few minutes of cooling.
