Do you ever have a craving for something sweet after dinner but don’t have anything on hand? Ugh, I do! I hardly keep any sweets in my house since I have a major sweet tooth. Usually that helps me from ingesting tons of sweets on a nightly basis. Certain times during the month though I can’t help it and I must have dessert. I came across the perfect recipe because it is SO simple and easy to make. PLUS, it only makes about a dozen so I don’t have to worry about having 3 dozen cookies in my house.

A look into the bowl..oh so simple – I love it!
Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oat Cookies
1.25 C oats
1/4 C sugar
1/4 C peanut butter
1/2 t baking powder
2 T softened butter
1/2 C chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl until dough is blended evenly.
3. Let dough cool in the refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes
4. Place cookies on cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges.
You don’t have to follow step 3 but if you don’t the cookies will be more difficult to form a nice shape.
What’s your favorite on hand dessert?
I love a little piece of dark chocolate but I also love on movie nights when I make a big bowl of popcorn (no, not microwave, the real stuff!).
