Oatmeal, chocolate and peanut butter come together in this chewy cookie to make them irresistibly good. My son complains each time I make cookies with oatmeal until he tries them and then remembers that he likes oatmeal. Oatmeal makes me feel like cookies are healthy and with the protein in the peanut butter even more healthy right? I really can’t say no to oatmeal cookies they seem to beckon me for more with each bite, these little babies are a bit dangerous to have around. Hubby literally doesn’t go a day without peanut butter and the kids love chocolate chips so it seems this cookie meets everyone’s needs all in one cookie.
