Kitchen Sink Cookies

Open up the Pantry door wide

Collect some peanut butter and decide

To add a few raisins and some chips

Combine with cocoa for nirvana on your lips

Don’t forget the oatmeal for a dose of health

A yummy ingredient that adds texture with stealth

Enjoy every chew

A delight through and through!


2 sticks unsalted butter room temperature

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

¾ cup creamy peanut butter

2 large eggs

1-teaspoon vanilla

¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 teaspoons baking powder

1-teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon salt

2 cups unbleached flour

1 ½ cups old-fashioned oats

One 12-ounce package bittersweet chocolate chunks

1 generous cup of raisins

Optional: 1 cup chopped roasted unsalted peanuts

Lots of nooks and crannies


Preheat oven to 350.  Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.  Cream butter with sugars. Add peanut butter and blend.  Add vanilla and eggs and beat until smooth. Add baking powder, cinnamon, salt cocoa and flour. And mix until evenly incorporated.  Add oatmeal and blend.  Add chocolate chunks and raisins and mix until just combined. Form golfball sized cookie and place 8 per sheet. Bake for approximately 12-16 minutes until tops feel set but not over baked; they firm up as they cool.  Let cookies rest on cookie sheet for a few minutes then transfer to racks to cool.  Can freeze in airtight container.

Yield 32 2-½ -3 inch cookies
