peanut butter white chocolate oatmeal cookies.

I’m pretty sure my cookie snobbery reaches all the way back to my childhood, when my mother would (thankfully) insist on making our own cookies from scratch rather than (gasp!) buy pre-made cookies!  Oh the horror!  The days when I finagled my way into a box of Oreos were few and far between.

But now I’m grateful for the lessons in cookie snobbery.

A fresh-from-the-oven, homemade batch of cookies is a quick go-to treat, an easy but thoughtful dessert if you have last minute company, and is far less expensive than store-bought (and so much better too!).

Often I’ll whip up some dough and keep extra on hand in the freezer in case we have friends drop by OR it’s 10 o’clock at night and I just want a bite bowl of cookie dough.  It’s great for that too.

Nevermind what they say about raw egg…

Here’s what happens when you load up your cookie dough with peanut butter, white chocolate chips and oats…the beater gets quite a workout. It’s looks exhausted!

I use whole wheat flour in these babies but you can use white or a combination of the two if you aren’t as crunchy as me 🙂

So here they are, my loaded peanut-butter-white-chocolate-oatmeal-with-a-hint-of-coconut, cookies.

XOXO from Your Frugal Baker,


Peanut Butter White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

(a FFF original – makes approx. 3 dozen cookies)

What You’ll Need:

1 stick butter, at room temperature

1/3 cup coconut oil

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup white or turbinado sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/3 cup natural peanut butter

1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour (or if you aren’t ready for 100% whole wheat go half whole wheat, half white flour)

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup white chocolate chips

3 cups old fashioned oats


Preheat the oven to 350F.

Beat butter, oil and sugars until smooth and creamy.  Add eggs, vanilla and peanut butter and blend until smooth.

Add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and mix until just combined.  Finally, add white chocolate chips and oats by hand and mix just until incorporated.

Spoon dough onto baking sheets and cook 7-9 minutes.

TOTAL:  $5.76 or $.16 per serving.

Wondering how on earth I arrived at these costs?  Take a look at my shopping guide to show see what I pay for items, per serving, etc.

    I don’t have coconut oil but I must try these. Any substitutes?

    • Yes! You can use canola oil or butter in place of the coconut.
