Oatmeal PB&J Cookies

You know how I know when a recipe is good? When I use my own blog to make the recipe again icon smile Oatmeal PB&J Cookies

The hubby walked by me in the kitchen tonight as said, “Are you using a recipe off your own blog?” And I said, “Heck yes I am!”

I made another batch of these Cranberry Corn Muffins tonight because I noticed that I had 3 bags of cranberries in the freezer. I used the same recipe, except I used a container of plain Greek yogurt instead of the oil. They turned out great!

After dinner, I was craving a cookie. Ok actually, I’m craving frozen yogurt. I have been for about 3 weeks. The hubby doesn’t like to eat ice cream in the winter. This consequently decreases my intake as well. It’s a bummer. Anyways, I knew the frozen yogurt wasn’t happening tonight so I decided to whip up a batch of cookies. I wanted to make something  a little different so I started my search for a healthy peanut butter cookie recipe with oats. Easier said than done.

I finally came across this one by Tina @ Carrots & Cake and decided that with a few changes it might work.

Here’s what to do:

Mix the peanut butter and butter. Then add in the egg and sugar.

Mix in the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Then, most importantly, the chocolate chips!

I used my handy dandy cookie scoop to get the dough, but it was a little crumbly so I used my hands to push each ball together more firmly. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. After five minutes, use a fork to smash each cookie down a little bit.

Like I said, they’re a little crumbly. What does that mean…anyone? I need more liquid?

I did a little taste test and they were pretty good, but they were missing something. Then I remembered these cookies from Jessica @ How Sweet. They were on my Christmas baking list and never got made. So, I added some strawberry jam to one of my cookies and it was perfect!

My only advice is to only put the jam on right before you eat the cookie. I don’t think they’d store well all covered in jam icon smile Oatmeal PB&J Cookies

So tell me, what’s your favorite cookie recipe? Feel free to leave links for me. I’m always looking for new ones!
