Girlfriend Cookies loaded with ground oats, milk chocolate chunks, Mini Reese’s Pieces, white chocolate and peanut butter chips. They are pretty darn good and could possibly be the perfect girlfriend bait.
A few weeks back I posted these Boyfriend Cookies, and like I always do, I also put them on my Instagram. Well, my son Zach left this comment:
Can they get @brandonedman03 and I girlfriends?? 😂
After I stopped laughing, I did what any good mom would do and I came up with girlfriend cookies.
I mean it’s only fair that if a cookie can be used as boyfriend bait, then a cookie should be able to be used as a girlfriend getter. Am I right?
No major changes here, because why mess too much with something that is already so good? I just swapped out a few of the add-ins with a few of my favorite things, like peanut butter chips, mini Reese’s Pieces and white chocolate chips.
You guys, these turned out so good. I love white chocolate chips and peanut butter chips together. I don’t know why, but I do. Oh and the dough, I’ll just say it would be a crime not to taste it.I can honestly say that if a guy made me these cookies, I would totally fall for him.
So Zach and Brandon, here you go. Cookies are definitely the way to a girl’s heart, so get busy making these Girlfriend Cookies.

- 1 cup butter (room temperature)
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1¼ cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 4 ounces milk chocolate bar, frozen (I use fun size Hershey's Bars)
- 1½ cup white chocolate chips
- 2/3 cup peanut butter chips
- 3/4 cup mini Reese's Pieces
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment mix together the butter and both sugars for 2 minutes until fluffy on medium speed. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until just combined.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Place the oats in a blender or food processor and grind until fine. Whisk the oats into the flour mixture and then with the mixer on low speed, slowly add the flour mixture into the sugar mixture.
Place the frozen chocolate bars into the blender or food processor and pulse a few times. The chocolate should resemble small pebbles.
With the mixer still on low add in the ground chocolate, chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. Add mini Reese’s Pieces and stir in using a wooden spoon or spatula (because these are so small, I fold these in by hand so they don’t get smashed from the electric mixer).
Using a large cookie scoop scoop the dough (about 3 tablespoons) onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes until the edges are lightly golden. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes and then transfer to a wore rack to cool completely.
