Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate Chip Studded Oatmeal Cookies


Who ever said children weren’t very wise?  My son has figured out how to get what he desires through my cookbooks.  After I quickly appeased his request for the Baked Banana Doughnuts, he was obviously back in the same book looking for something else to satisfy his cravings.

I found this note on my desk this morning next to the recipe for these cookies.  It cracked me up.  I guess it is one way to get your oatmeal.  He thinks like me.  How could I not make them.  He’s very lucky I keep a very stocked baking pantry. 

They were ready when he came home from school.  He was happy.  It makes me wonder what will be next.  I hope it’s lobster.

Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a bowl until creamy.  Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.  Combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; add to butter mixture, beating well.  Stir in oats, milk chocolate chips and peanut butter chips.

Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 to 14 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool for 1 minute and move to a wire rack.

The little bit of cinnamon in these cookies makes for a nice flavor.

Thank goodness it’s the weekend, I can’t be alone in the house with these.

  4. Your son is showing amazing wisdom and smarts, and that he is mastering the fine art of gentle persuasion and being rewarded for it, as well he should! If I were you I would put out the seafood cookbooks only! But wait, I want more chicken recipes, yeah, put out more poultry recipes too, please? ( Hooligan, hint, hint!)

    I don’t do well at making cookies, because I can never make enough to satisfy the hungry hordes. Please feel free to drop by with cookies when you are in the neighborhood!

    smart kid! i don’t like oatmeal-raisin cookies (well, as much as a person can not like a cookie, anyway)(i’ll still eat them, of course), so this would have to be my ideal way to get my oatmeal intake. studly studded cookies, cathy!

  28. I think it is very cute that they are sending you notes to bake for them now! Thanks for the idea about the banana donuts. I have a donut pan so when I made banana bread the other night I poured some batter in the pan for a few donuts for the kids’ lunches, they loved them. Now I have a use for that pan- it only makes 12 minis though!
