peanut butter-oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies

Jared has been working really long, weird hours this week, so I made him these cookies. I used the Big Gigantoid Crunchy Peanut Butter-Oatmeal cookie recipe from VWaV but added a handful of chocolate chips because Jared loves chocolate and peanut butter together (I don't know many people who don't though). I halved the recipe so we wouldn't have too many cookies around the house and instead of making 12 big cookies I decided to make "normal" sized cookies (which yielded about 20 cookies) so we wouldn't feel as guilty eating more than one! They aren't big or gigantoid but they are pretty damn amazing.

my all-time favorite cookie variety is peanut-butter-oatmeal; so you KNOW I'm all over those Crunchy Peanut Butter-Oatmeal cookies that you made - yum!!

You are too good to Jared. Those are darn good cookies, made even better with chips added in!

Those look great! I've been on a crazy peanut butter kick lately.

Those are one of my favorites! I'm afraid I use more than a 'handful' of chocolate chips when I make them, but I make up for it by substituting applesauce for half the oil (they turn out just fine that way!) :-)

Those cookies are awesome! I love that recipe. Sucks that Jared has been working crazy hours, hopefully these will make up for it!!

FYI: I'm in the early stages of planning another potluck, for early June!!

It's true, the combination of chocolate and peanut butter is almost impossible to resist, even if someone claims to not like peanut butter alone (which is hard to believe in and of itself!)

The cookies look great!

You guys are funny. The dishes you make are so cute. I am glad you show the world, that being vegan does not mean to go starvin-marvin and hate food :-)

Yay for vegan cookies, I say! Any time we can eat chocolate, sugar, and whatever yumminess and not have it loaded down with butter and eggs and crap? Well, all the reason to have a couple more!
