1 teaspoon Baking Soda

2 tablespoons Ground Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract


In a small mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; mix well. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually mix in flour mixture completely. Add chocolate chips and oats and mix well. Spread mixture evenly into a 3-qt oblong baking dish. Bake in a pre-heated 375 degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until top turns golden brown. Check the middle with a toothpick to see if it is done, it will be done when the toothpick inserted comes out


Happy Monday! Phew, I totally could NOT think of another name for these..I thought the title was a tad long..my hubby said to call them OPBCCB, and I politely declined ;) Oh well, who cares what, or how long, the name is..these were incredible! I just took a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe and tweaked it a bit, then added peanut butter, oats, and a TON of cinnamon. They sort of reminded me of monster cookies, but not as much add-ins. They were SO good. Definitely a staple go-to recipe for a yummy treat from now on! I think I will always make them in bar form rather than cookie because they just WORK like that..yeah! =) My hubby absolutely loved them, so that's always a good thing! Goodnight everyone!
