I love oats in my baking – muffins, cookies, bars, you name it. Despite that, I don’t like oatmeal…but that’s a whole other story. I was craving peanut butter (I’ve learned to accept I’m always craving peanut butter) and chocolate, so it was only logical that I combined these into a cookie. I remembered seeing this recipe a while back, and I was so excited I finally got to try it out! I increased the oats by 1/4 cup because I love them so much and it was perfect for me. However, I felt the cookies were too oily – probably because of the peanut butter – so next time I would decrease that and maybe add a bit more butter to compensate.
These were fantastic straight out of the oven, or served the next day with some milk. Mine personally got a bit stale after 2-3 days, so eat these quick! Recipe under the cut.
