Peanut Oat Cookies Recipe

Peanut Oat Cookies

These cookies are light and crispy, with added crunch from peanuts. Whole or chopped peanuts are used instead of peanut butter, which gives it a distinct crunch and a stronger peanut flavor.

½ cup + 2 tablespoons flour
½ cup rolled oats
½ cup sugar (use 1 cup if you prefer ‘normal’ level of sweetness)
1 egg
¼ cup oil or butter
½ cup salted roasted peanuts (optional: chopped)
¼ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

1.      Heat oven to 180°C/360°F
2.      Mix flour, rolled oats, baking powder and baking soda
3.      In a separate bowl beat butter/oil, sugar, egg and vanilla until sugar dissolves and the mixture turns pale
4.      Add flour mixture and mix well
5.      Stir in peanuts
6.      Place balls of dough about an inch thick onto a baking tray, flatten and bake until golden brown and delicious, about 12 - 15 minutes


  1. I'm not a fan of peanuts in sweet dishes (oats do sound delicious though), but I must say these cookies look like a big treat for all the peanut lovers.
