How to Make Hubby’s Absolute Favorite Cookies

Delicious little morsels!

When it comes to cookies, I don’t know anyone who adores them more than my Hubby. I swear he’s like the cookie monster! I just can’t keep these around, they disappear in no time at all! This tried and true cookie recipe is his absolute favorite! Super moist and chewy with Peanut butter, chocolate chips, raisins and rolled oats.

This recipe is sure to be a crowd pleaser not only are they hubby’s absolute favorite, they are one of my most requested recipes. You wouldn’t think to add chocolate chips with raisins and peanut butter but trust me, they are absolutely delish.

I am going to share with you the recipe along with a video tutorial on how to make these delicious morsels for you and your loved ones. Feel free to play around with different types of chocolate chips and you can also try substituting dried cranberries etc. in place of the raisins. Have fun!

Although this is a tried and true recipe; I cannot take claim to it. I found it many moons ago in an old cookbook my sister bought at a yard sale. I think originally they were called must have chocolate chip cookies. I renamed them because it seems to be the only cookie my hubby wants!

How to Make Hubby’s absolute favorite cookies:


  • 1 cup of raisins
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 & 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


Place raisins in a small bowl and pour boiling water over top. This helps to moisten the raisins. Beat butter with peanut butter until nice and smooth add sugar. Beat well and add eggs one at a time, then add cinnamon, vanilla, baking soda & flour mixing after each addition to combine. Stir in your rolled oats.

Drain the water from the raisins and add to the mixture along with your chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonful’s onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. place about 2″ apart. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
