  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine or 1 stick or 8 tablespoons softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter I use crunchy
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 1/2 cups quick uncooked oats
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  • Beat margarine, peanut butter and sugars together until creamy. Blend in eggs, milk, and vanilla. Add flour, soda, and salt to the creamed mixture. Blend well. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.
  • Drop by spoonsfuls (I roll mine into balls with my hands about the size of a walnut and place the ball unmashed) onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake in moderate oven 350 degrees about 15 minutes. (I like the tops brown, so I usually turn on the broiler for about two minutes before taking out of the oven). Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
