Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Milk and warm cookies

I have a bonus post for you this week! They are my favorite cookies. Give them a try and let me know how it goes!

These cookies were always a huge hit in my house when I was growing up. Every time a batch was baked the cookies would disappear in a flash!

The ingredients are added in three sets of three (except the chocolate chips which are mixed in at the end). Once the cookies are spooned onto the cookie sheet they must be flattened because they do not spread much. I use the bottom of a glass and dip it in sugar to keep the cookies from sticking to it too much.

Here is the recipe so you can see for yourself just how great they are! I hope you enjoy! I would love to hear any questions or opinions in the comments section below! Happy baking!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cream together the first three ingredients until they are fluffy.
  2. Add in the next three ingredients (water, egg, and vanilla) and mix well.
  3. Measure the oats, flour, and baking soda into the bowl and mix until everything is combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Scoop round spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet.  Using the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar flatten the cookie a little. Bake for 10 minutes, or until they just start turning golden brown.  Let them cool for a few minutes before removing from the cookie sheet.  They are extremely gooey when warm.

Brownie in a Mug — June 1, 2015

Brownie in a Mug

Do you ever get a hankering for something sweet that just won’t go away, but you don’t have the time or patience to bake something fancy.  Here is a solution to that problem. Today I have for you a brownie in a mug that is simple, and super fast.  You can now have  a warm brownie in under two minutes! It gets even better–you only need three ingredients!

Water, oil, and brownie mix.  Can it get much simpler than that?

Water, oil, brownie mix

Dump the brownie mix into your mug. I used Betty Crocker chocolate chunk mix because who doesn’t want melted chocolate in their brownies?

Then, pour in your water…..

and your oil.

I keep the extra mix in an airtight bag for the next time I get a craving.
