    1 hr 5 mins


  1. Place oats in a blender or food processor and pulse until oats resemble flour. Transfer oats to a large bowl and stir in flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. Beat butter, milk, peanut butter, white sugar, and brown sugar in another bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Beat in vanilla extract with the last egg; stir in oat mixture until well blended. Fold in peanut butter chips, mixing just enough to evenly combine. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Drop 1-inch spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until cookie centers are set, 10 to 12 minutes.

Not in recent memory have I been so disappointed with a recipe. I’ve always believed it’s just not good common sense not to use your own common sense. My common sense (which I foolishly ignored) told me a half cup of milk just wasn’t right. And it wasn’t. I should have trusted that, followed through, and added milk as necessary, if at all. I ended up with glop. Risking destroying the integrity of the baked cookie I had to add another full cup of flour just to have the dough have some resemblance to cookie dough, and even then it was still sticky. After chilling it in the fridge, it was still sticky, but I’ve made other chocolate cookies where the dough was sticky and they turned out fine. Not this one. While the photo I’ve submitted of these cookies doesn’t look half bad, it is total deception. I handed a cookie to Hubs for a taste test, keeping my comments to myself for the time being. After taking a bite he handed the cookie back to me and with an apologetic look on his face said, “These are bad.” I tasted it too and agreed that outside of sweetness and a faint peanut butter flavor it was tasteless – this in spite of a full cup of very good cocoa powder. I threw out the whole batch, the baked cookies as well as the unbaked dough - effectively, that means one star, inedible. I’m not sure, had the dough called for an appropriate amount of flour, that it would have even made a difference in the final result.

How can you go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter? Right now my husband is enjoying them made into chocolate ice cream sandwiches.

Hubby liked these. I followed everything in the recipe exact except I didn't have peanut butter chips but hubby wanted the butterscotch ones we had on hand. Seemed like a good combination.
