PB&J Oatmeal Cookies

Cook Time12 mins
Total Time12 mins
Course: Cookies
Author: Barbara Schieving


  • 2 cups rolled oaths
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups PB&J Mix*


  • In a small bowl stir together oats and water. In a medium bowl combine the flour and baking soda.
  • In a large saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Remove from heat and stir in sugars, vanilla and salt. Whisk in the egg. Add the flour stirring just until combined. Stir in the oats and trail mix.
  • Let the dough stand for a least 1 hour, or preferably cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 350º.
  • Drop one tablespoon dough on to ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cookies are golden brown on top. (More time is required if the dough is chilled.) Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.


*You can substitute 1 cup raisins and 1 cup of chopped nuts for the 2 cups of the PB&J Mix. I omitted 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg so the flavor of the fruit and nuts would shine.
