Apple Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Apple Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies | you-made-that.comI’m so happy for Fall and all the yummy comfort food that seems to accompany it. Apple season is in the Fall and this year I have an apple tree that gave us plenty of good fruit to make things with so don’t be surprised in the next month or so if you see a few apple recipes.

Have you ever tried apple slices spread with peanut butter on them? My roommate in college got me to try it years ago and I thought it sounded weird, but I tried it and I really liked it. Fast forward 25 years and I saved this cookie recipe from a fellow blogger friend Jessica at My Kitchen Addiction– she made these cookies a few years ago.  My taste buds again were a little hesitant about putting apples, peanut butter and oats together in a cookie,  then I  remembered that apples and peanut butter are so good together.  I recently made them, the results were so yummy, the apple makes these very moist and the peanut butter of course makes them taste delicious.   I added some cinnamon since it always goes well with apples. These cookies remind me of the wonderful Fall season.  Enjoy.

I am certainly glad you saved this recipe and took the time to share it with the rest of us. I bake a lot of cookies. I often make up my own combos, but this is one I have never put together. I like it! I pinned it!

What a fun treat Suzanne! I love peanut butter and apples but never though of combining them in cookies. They look wonderful!
