My awesome cookies...or...how to gain 10 pounds in 1 day.

This is my recipe. I used the recipe for Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Rounds from the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, but changed it here and there. 
Here's what you need: 
3/4 cup butter (cold)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup flax seed meal
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup chocolate chips
 Beat butter and peanut butter on med. speed for 30 sec. or till combined
 It should look like this. See the small clumps of butter? That's a good thing. 
 Add sugar, baking powder and soda. Beat till just combined. 
 Now add the eggs and vanilla. Beat for 30 seconds. 
Now add the flour and flax seed. I have a pretty tough mixer so I just dumped both right in. But you can gradually add the flour and flax seed if you're not so sure about yours. 
 Using a spoon, stir in the oats. 
 Add some chocolate chips. 
 Use a medium scoop or table spoon to scoop mounds onto a baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 12-15min. 
You can tell I used a scoop because mine look like round little mounds. Enjoy!


  1. Devin saw this and he wants me to make these ASAP. On the day you brought them to our pool party, he went into the house to have lunch. He came back out to get a cookie for dessert and they were all gone!

  2. LOL poor guy! Have fun making them, but I'll probably have some more the next time we see you. : )
