Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Cookies

Who doesn’t like peanut butter cookies? I think, unless you are allergic, pretty much no one right?

So here you have it. I just started making cookies since we are in December, after all it is cookie month right? I don’t know how many different cookies I will be making because to be honest there are way to many other things that I would like to bake as well. I figured I will try to post at least a couple more, will see how it goes.

These cookies remind me a little bit of this ones that I used to eat when I used to live in England, it brings back some memories. There its where I really started baking and where my baking obsession really took form :-) I really loved my time in England, I miss it. Maybe I will visit some day with my family, heck my sister lives there on and off…….

Anyhow, I hope you like these because they sure are perfect with a glass of milk.


Make sure you really pay attention to them. They need no more than 8-9 minutes max. I baked mine for 10 and kind of got toasted a bit too much for my taste so watch out for yours.

  4. I love making my own granola but have never made this version before. I’m sure it would be a huge hit in my family and as gifts to friends. I’m curious though instead of pouring it into a bowl after the first 30 minutes and then redistributing it onto sheet pans to bake again, couldn’t you just mix each sheet pan with a spatula and then continue baking? That’s what I do with my granola, although I’m sure each recipe differs.

    • You totally could but bc my baking pans are so full with it stirring it will make a mess since a lot of it would overflow as I stir. It is easier for me to just place it all back into the big bowl and then distribute it back again in the baking pans :-) Thanks for stopping by.
