Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

I had every intention of posting my usual Fertile Friday post on Friday. It’s something that I have loved doing all summer since I am so happy with the progress I’ve made this year. And it’s something that I want to continue until the growing is done.

But this past week, I just needed a break.

Ok, break is a word I use somewhat loosely. I have been swamped with work over the past few weeks and I am in desperate need of some R&R. I really value my time that’s spent relaxing and doing other things on weekends and although I got that these past two weekends, it was punctuated with deadlines and last-minute writing.

So, here I am. Offering you these delectable Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies as a peace offering. These are soft and chewy peanut butter cookies bursting with chocolate.

Each bite reminds me of a rethought peanut butter cup. They are just fantastic. But beware — they are totally addictive, so plan to share.

I have a lot of delicious things planned for this week and I promise to have a new Fertile Friday post up bright and early on Friday. Thanks for being so understanding.

I made these yesterday and they were a hit with my husband. Thank you for the recipe. Unfortunately, my son isn't a pb fan. I will, however, try to substitute pumpkin puree for the pb and see if I that would work.

The cookies are incredible. I just baked them for a family function tomorrow evening. I am glad I did! I'm an avid baker myself....I just love it and can't get enough. I did double the batch and did a quarter of raisin oatmeal- we'll see how those turn out. :)

Thanks for the lovely recipe. My husband is now addicted.
