Servings 12 cookie sandwiches


  • 3 c. Oats (quick-cooking)
  • 1 c. Brown sugar
  • 2 t. Baking powder
  • 1 t. Salt
  • 1 1/2 c. Peanut butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3/4 c. Milk
  • 1 t. Vanilla
  • Preserves, jam or jelly of your choice


  • In a large bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Add peanut butter, eggs, milk and vanilla. Stir until well combined.
  • Roll a rounded tablespoon of dough into a ball, place on a cookie sheet and repeat until done. With the palm of your hand or the greased bottom of a glass, press cookies into a circle.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until just firm and lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. Spread jelly on the bottom of one cookie, top with another and repeat. Enjoy!


  • You can freeze these cookies before or after baking. If you freeze after baking, wait to assemble with the jam or jelly until after you've defrosted the cookies.
  • Mix it up by swapping the jam/jelly with a layer of Nutella or honey.
