Trifecta Cookies

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.

The Sara

The Sara is a blondie base with a strong peanut butter component, nutella swirls, chocolate chips, marshmallows, and a hint of cinnamon. It’s named after my good friend Sara, who is one of the most enthusiastic supporters of my baking (I can always count on her to taste batter, dough, frosting – anything!) and who loves all the above-mentioned ingredients. Therefore, it was only fitting that I name something full of everything she loves after her!

These blondies had a strong peanut butter flavor, and were practically melt-in-your-mouth. Delicious! Sara’s in Los Angeles for the summer, so I mailed her some – fingers crossed she loves these as much as I did! Recipe under the cut.
