hullo again and get ready for something amazing today! why? because i. wrote. a recipe. guysiwrotearecipe!!!!!!! this is so exciting, honestly, i sound like such a nerd right now but i’m so freaking excited. it’s very vaguely based on my peanut butter cookie recipe, but quite different once i finished with it. the version i created is gluten free, and i have yet to try it with normal flour, but in my experience most recipes work with either fairly well. i’ calling these “everything” cookies because they’re pretty much a combination of every basic cookie recipe. these were originally created because my mom wanted some healthy-ish oatmeal cookies for my sister’s tourney this weekend, but my sister wanted something with chocolate chips. they got third overall in the championship, by the way, the best they’ve ever done. i don’t really have anything else to say besides let’s get on with the post because i’m super duper excited to share this with you guys and can’t wait for someone to try them.
1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup peanut butter, creamy or crunchy
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour (gluten free or normal)
1 cup oats
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
other optional additions, like raisins, nuts, etc, would be 1 cup as well, you can add pretty much anything you want. milk is also optional for mixing.
- preheat oven to 350
- cream butter and peanut butter with a mixer, then add sugar and brown sugar at medium speed gradually until fluffy. add eggs and vanilla and beat well.
- add flour, baking soda, oats, and salt to mixture, mixing well. if mixture becomes dry, add a teaspoon of milk gradually until the mixture becomes doughy, but not sticky, similar to sugar cookie dough texture.
- shape dough into inch or so balls and place on an ungreased cookie tray.
- bake at 350 for 10 minutes, then flip tray so the front becomes the back, etc. then bake for 2-3 more minutes. remove from tray when finished and cool on racks.
- enjoy! makes 3 dozen
these are honestly the best cookies i think i’ve ever made. my mom is obsessed with them, she’s had almost half of all of them, and because they’re gluten free they don’t make her sick like some of my other recipes. i love writing posts like this, baking and cooking are my favorite hobbies, the kitchen is one of my favorite places. i’m taking cooking classes next week, starting tomorrow, and i’m so so so excited for them. when i get my own apartment later on in life, the number one priority will be the kitchen. anyways, i’m really excited about this recipe and really happy i get to share it with you guys. if you make it, let me know and tag me or send me a picture with whatever social media, which you can find in my about page, and let me know what you thought of them. i’m definitely going to try and write a lot more recipe posts than i have in the past, so look forward to them for sure. until next time, have a great couple of days and try something new. i’ll be back soon enough.
