Soft Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


Sometimes you want cookies, but sometimes you also want your cookies to be a little healthier. That's how these cookies came to be. Adding oats to chocolate chip cookies always makes me feel a bit better about eating them. Plus, I really love oats. Regular chocolate chip cookies can seem a little plain for me. I like a lot of action going on in my cookies. To keep things interesting, ya know?

I think we replaced too much of the flour with oats for our cookies, so they ended up SUPER soft to the point where they actually fell apart when we picked them up. They tasted great but no one wants to reach for a cookie to have it completely crumble apart before your eyes. Okay, it wasn't that bad. I've added some more flour to the recipe below, so hopefully it all works out now. Either way, these cookies are delicious and have plenty of fibre from the oats.
