Peanut butter anyone? Peanut butter and oatmeal? With milk chocolate chips?? Here have one. Or two. Or maybe five. Okay, I didn’t have five. But I did have three right in a row.
The hubby is out of town. Do you know what that means? That means that it was just me and a bag of giant milk chocolate chips having a stare down in an otherwise empty kitchen. I’d had a huge bowl of piping hot oatmeal for breakfast that was D-licious, and a peanut butter sandwich for lunch, but just didn’t get enough of the two I guess because although I set out to make a batch of good old chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal and peanut butter somehow made it into the mix.
And thank goodness. Because like I said… I didn’t stop at one. It may have been the bit of emptiness I felt from being home alllll alone today, or the dreaded summer math class I am starting tonight (oh mercy…) but these cookies did a fantastic job of lifting my spirits. The best part is how chewy they are. Mmmmm, ever so chewy. DON’T overbake them! I made that mistake with half of the batch and sadly they got a little too crunchy for my liking. But the half that I was more careful with turned out perfectly soft yet firm. Now get a move on and make some for yourself!
