Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Peanut Oatmeal Cookie


½ cup peanut butter
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. honey
1 package chocolate chips


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with non-stick baking spray.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients except the chocolate chips.
    3. Using wet hands, roll the dough into balls and place on baking sheet. Flatten the balls a tad to form thick cookie shapes.
    4. Bake approximately 8 minutes, or until slightly golden on top.
    5. In a microwave-safe bowl, add chocolate chips and microwave for 30-second intervals until completely melted.
    6. Pour melted chocolate into a zipper-top bag and cut off one of the corners. Drizzle chocolate over warm cookie and serve with a glass of milk.
