I'm totally obsessed with these cookies so I thought I would share the recipe and get the rest of you hooked too!
1/4 cup butter, room temp 3/4 cup sugar 3/4 cup brown sugar 2 eggs 1 tsp vanilla 1 cup peanut butter 1 1/4 tsp baking soda 3 cups rolled oats 6 ounces m&ms (I prefer regular chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 350
Beat sugar, brown sugar and butter until creamy. Add eggs, vanilla and baking soda and mix well. Add peanut butter and mix. Stir in oats, m&ms. Place teaspoon full of dough on lightly greased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly brown on edges
I usually make a double batch and freeze half of them.
Because they have oatmeal and peanut butter and no flour I like to pretend they are good for me. Go ahead - give it a try. You won't be sorry.
What to say about me? I'm from Salt Lake City, Utah, but don't let that fool you. I'm a liberal through and through. It ain't easy being blue in a blood red state. I'm married to Joe and there are all kinds of cute cheesy things I could say about him, but I'll just leave it at saying he's wonderful. We have 2 kids - Brad was born in October of 2005 and Lucy in May of 2008. You know how they always tell you you'll think your kids are cute even if they really aren't? Well mine are. I don't think you'll learn anything life altering from reading my blog, but hopefully you'll enjoy the pictures of my family and hearing about the funny things they do.
