TWD - peanutbutter, oatmeal and chocolate chipsters


TWD seems to be going through a cookie phase at the moment. This week’s recipe is peanut butter & oatmeal chocolate chipsters and is chosen by Stefany of Proceed with Caution. I love peanut butter, so this was a great recipe for licking the bowl!



These cookies were a combination of peanut butter, chocolate and oatmeal (as the name suggests!). Dorie specified either crunchy or smooth peanut butter. I only had smooth in the cupboard so used that, but I did add some chopped salted peanuts which added to the flavour. As I said above, the raw mixture of these cookies was delicious! And the cooked product was pretty good as well. The cookie turned out lovely and crisp, but with a slight chewiness from the oats. The peanut butter flavour wasn’t too pronounced, but I think that the addition of the salted peanuts gave a great boost to the flavour of the cookies.

The other interesting thing in these cookies was a touch of cinnamon – not enough to make the cookies cinnamon flavoured, but just subtle enough to add a little
something.



I would definitely make these again and I actually think that they could become firm favourites. They are perfect with a glass of milk and would be great in school lunch boxes (if I had kids!!).

See if the other TWDers loved them as much as I did by looking here.

These look perfect. I thought the spice added a nice little kick. Wish I'd added some crushed peanuts, though. Good idea!

Your cookies look terrific. They were a hit around here, too. My daughter already asked if she can have one in her lunch for school tomorrow. =)

I agree about the touch of cinnamon. Just enough to get a little taste but it doesn't overwhelm the cookie. Great job!

Really pretty cookies and nice pix. The salted nuts sound like an inspired addition - to balance some of the sweetness.

How nice to see a post that says "I love...." rather than your usual "I'm not a fan of....". You crack me up!

I'm definitely going to try these after your glowing review.
