Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Well, I spent Saturday looking like half of my face had been run over like a truck, and slept about 16 hours, but at least I'm no longer in need of Kevin's "happy drugs", and therefore, no longer an idiot!  So last night I made my guys some cookies for dessert


3/4 cup melted margarine or butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp milk powder
2 cups oats
1 egg or 1/4 cup egg beaters
2 tbsp water

Beat together the margarine, peanut butter, brown sugar and vanilla.  Add the flour, powder, soda, salt and milk powder, and beat until well combined.  Add the oats, egg and water, and beat until combined.  Scoop out onto greased baking trays, and bake 9 to 12 minutes at 375F or 350F in a convection oven.  Makes about 5 dozen.

And not one picture.  That's right.  My guys ate them so fast that I didn't take a single picture.  You'll just have to believe them that these were good!

(The plum tree out front will have to serve as a substitute for a picture of cookies.)

As soon as we have AC again, I'll make some... and share with our already worked 12 hours friend who came over anyway.

I love your pictures of your home and yard... what a beautiful place you live in!

I am certain the cookies are delicious. My little ones would gobble them up.

I am glad to hear your face/mouth is feeling better. YEAH!

This looks like a great recipe, we will give it a try and there will be enough to send to work with my husband and some to my soldier boy. I too am glad that your dental woes are over.

I love my Mom's PB/Oatmeal cookie recipe - I can understand how they disappeared so fast. But there's been no baking happening in this house with our 30°C temps!

Glad to hear you're off the 'happy pills' and are finally on the mend ! You ARE on the mend now, yes ?

I love when you post about cookies. We're out, so I need to make some soon.

I'd never bake 'em, just eat the dough.
