Baked No-Bake Cookies

Have you ever eaten no-bake cookies? The chocolate, peanut butter, oatmeal deliciousness?

Yeah, I'm a fan too.

Recently though,  I tweaked a recipe to make a cookie I think I might like even more; and while you do have to bake these cookies, they have the same sorts of no-bake flavors with a more classic chewy cookie texture. I'm officially hooked, and not just 'cause I'm hormonal and craving all things chocolate.


Try 'em with a big glass of milk! Your thighs will thank you.

Baked No-Bakes

1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1/3 c. peanut butter
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. rolled oats

Cream butter and sugars until fluffy, then beat in peanut butter, egg, and vanilla. Add dry ingredients, mix well. Stir in oats.

Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoonful (or cookie scoop) onto lightly greased pan. Bake for 10 minutes at 350°F -- don't overbake or the cookies will start to dry out.

Store in tightly closed container, makes 20-24 cookies.
