Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Desserts, Recipes | March 1, 2017 | By

Now that I am off the 21 Day Fix, I can share these amazing Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies with you. I can’t believe this is the first cookie recipe I am bringing to the blog. It’s probably because I am a total cookie snob and have extremely high standards. I need them to be slightly crisp on the edges but still slightly gooey in the middle. You know those cookies that stick in your teeth? That’s what I want. Of course I also want them to have lots of flavor. They should taste good warm out of the oven but also just as good a couple days later. I am happy to say that I have found a cookie that meets all of my requirements! Welcome Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies.

 

I have made these cookies countless times in the past couple years and they have never disappointed me. When they first come out of the oven they are slightly puffed up, but after cooling for a minute or two they settle down, crisp up, and develop those cracks that to me is just a glorious sight. 

These are my go to cookie when I am needing something sweet because the recipe is super easy and I always have everything on hand to make them. What makes these special is that they contain chopped nuts, creamy peanut butter, AND peanut butter baking chips. That’s a whole lot of delicious goodness packed into one perfect cookie.  

When you make these you may want to just double the batch from the get go. They DO NOT last long. It’s a problem. I eat one after another after another…… I am eating now now as I type…..YUM!

  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  2. In a mixing bowl, beat together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy.
  3. Add in the peanut butter mixture and vanilla. Mix well.
  4. Beat in the egg.
  5. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.
  6. Add in the oats and mix for another minute.
  7. Mix in the peanut butter chips.
  8. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  9. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Notes

Instead of combining creamy peanut butter and chopped nuts you can just use crunchy peanut butter. If you don't have old fashioned and quick you can use either or.

Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes

Breakfast, Recipes | May 23, 2016 | By

Happy Monday! Yesterday was not a good day for me. I thought I had a really bad cold but turns out it was probably allergies (by allergies I mean the worst I have ever had, didn’t know they could get so bad….allergies). The pollen around here is out of control. It’s on everything. Thanks to my husband and lots of allergy medicine, I was able to get plenty of rest yesterday and today I am feeling much better. So much better in fact that I woke up well before the twins and was super productive (win!). I brewed my coffee, made a batch of delicious Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes and got a photo shoot in. These pancakes were just what I needed this morning!

What a great Monday morning!

I found this recipe for Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes a few months back and have been in love with them ever since. I have made them SO many times. The recipe is very forgiving and they turn out really fluffy and delicious. The oatmeal in them keeps you fuller longer and gives you energy to start your day. We go through a ton of blueberries in our house. It’s the twins favorite fruit and they will eat them by the handful all day if I let them. So they really enjoy these pancakes too. Don’t have blueberries? Any berry will do. I even used bananas a couple times and they are amazing in these!

Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes

This recipe couldn’t be any easier to make. Just throw everything in one bowl and whisk together. Like I said its very forgiving so I don’t stress about measuring everything exactly (sometimes it’s too early in the morning to measure). This always makes more batter than I need, so I put the leftover batter in the fridge and use it the next day. 

I am so glad I am feeling better…..now excuse me while I go eat a hundred of these pancakes…..
