Who can resist sweet peanut butter filling, especially when it’s on a rich oat-flavored crisp cookie? This takes your classic oatmeal cookie to a whole new level.



  • 1/2 cup coconut oil

  • 1 cup light brown sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 and 1/2 cups old fashioned oats

  • 1 cup Shibolim White Whole Wheat Flour (or regular flour, if you prefer)

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon Gefen Cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pecans



Prepare the Cookies and Filling


Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line two baking sheets with Gefen Parchment Paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.


In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine coconut oil and light brown sugar. Mix until creamy. Add egg and vanilla. Mix until incorporated.


Then add oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and ground pecans. Mix well.


Scoop one heaping teaspoon of cookie dough, roll into a ball, and place on baking sheet. Do not press down; these cookies will spread as they bake. Space cookies about one and 1/2 inches apart.


Bake for 10-13 minutes, depending on how chewy or crispy you like your cookie.


Prepare the filling. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine coconut oil, peanut butter, and confectioners’ sugar until creamy and smooth.


Add vanilla and slowly add almond milk, one tablespoon at a time, until you have a texture that will spread easily.


When the cookies are cool, flip them over and spread some filling over half the cookies. Top with a similar sized cookie. The cookies are best served slightly chilled. They last well if kept refrigerated for up to a few days.


If preparing these more than a few days in advance, keep the cookies and filling separate (cookies can be frozen and filling can be kept in the refrigerator). Assemble before serving.

Needs adjustment These are definitely worth making against, but! With the original ingredients, the dough did not hold together enough to form cookie shapes. Adding another egg or two helped with that. Another thing which didn’t turn out to be true was that the dough did not spread out in the oven, so the end result was more ball shape. Still delicious, though!
