Trailside Oatmeal Treats

Trailside Oatmeal Treats
  • 1-3/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup chunk-style peanut butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2-1/2 cups uncooked oats
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Stir together flour, soda and salt; set aside. In large bowl beat butter, peanut butter and sugars until creamy. Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture, then oats, chocolate chips and raisins. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 3 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake in preheated 350ยบ oven about 13 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to rack to cool.

What do you do when the lid won't fit on the cookie jar?Makes 42

All the goodness of peanut butter, oatmeal, and chocolate chip cookies in one! I don't usually add the raisins because no one in my family likes raisins - except me. Coconut is good in these, too.

I can't remember where this recipe originally came from, but these are the cookies I make most often.

Anna, the recipe for Trailside Oatmeal Treats is identical to the one I've been using for 25 or 30 years. I originally found it in a Womans Day magazine. My kids loved it and now continue to make them for their own children. Good recipe!


That's probably exactly where we got it, because I started making these at home before I married my husband - so it's been at least that long.

They are good, aren't they? I think it's about time to make a batch of cookies. My cookie jar is empty.


Very enlightening and beneficial to someone whose been out of the circuit for a long time.
