Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies are the best chocolate peanut butter cookie recipe out there. |

During the holiday season, I find that I often think of holiday flavours for treats, think peppermint cookies or gingerbread muffins, but the truth is, a chocolate chip cookie is just as much a holiday cookie as anything else. When I’m baking for the holidays, I’m making cookies and squares and bars because I want to share them with people, because holiday baking is about baking not about the flavours of the treats. Do you agree? While there are some traditions, like the cutout sugar cookies with royal icing that I make without fail every single year, I’m always changing up the other cookies I bake. This year, peanut butter-oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies are on the list, and this is one of the best chocolate chip cookie recipes I have made in a long time!

For as long as I can remember, I have always preferred chocolate chunk cookies to chocolate chip cookies. I always love seeing the big chunks of chocolate in my cookies because it reminds me of the delicious ginormous cookies you can find at bakeries around the city. Plus, I always find that there with chocolate chunk cookies, there will most likely be more chocolate, which is a win in my eyes because I don’t believe there is such a thing as too much chocolate. These cookies use an entire 225g package of Baker’s semi-sweet chocolate (about 8 oz), which you chop up into whatever size chunks you desire. I like to cut some into smaller pieces so you have chocolate specks sprinkled throughout the dough as well as some larger chunks that poke out of the peanut butter-oatmeal cookies.

If you’re crazy for peanut butter and chocolate (who isn’t?) you should check out this collection of peanut butter and chocolate recipes to get started. It was so tough to pick a recipe for this month’s What’s Cooking theme, but I went with this classic cookie and I am so glad that I did. I can’t even count the number of people who have asked me for the recipe. Last year, I shared a delicious peppermint cheesecake square recipe which is another incredible and decadent treat, I think a platter of these peanut butter-oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies and peppermint cheesecake squares would be incredible this holiday season.
