Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Here we are in the middle of Oatmeal Cookie Week.  I've been on a little kick lately with the oatmeal cookie.  I've been telling myself that because it's oatmeal cookies, they're healthy.  Ha.  Just let me live in my little delusion a while longer... there's still cookies in the cookie jar.

Who doesn't love a chocolate and peanut butter combo?  I had to try this combo out before I called it quits on my oatmeal cookie obsession.  These were good.  They were a bit rich too.  I couldn't binge on these quite like I did on the Cranberry and Almond ones.  Still yummy though.

CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER OATMEAL COOKIES

Ingredients:
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 Tbsp vanilla
- 3 cups oats
- 1/2 cup milk
- 3/4 to 1 cup peanut butter
- 6 Tbsp cocoa


Directions:
- Combine the sugar, brown sugar, flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa in a large mixing bowl.  Mix until well combined.
- Add in the butter, eggs, vanilla and milk.  Combine.
- Fold in the oats until thoroughly mixed.
- Add the peanut butter.  Mix into batter.
- Drop 1 inch balls onto lightly greased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 350F for 12 minutes.
- Cool on a cooling rack.
- Store in an airtight container.

Cranberry Almond Oatmeal Cookies

And welcome to Day 2 of this unofficial Oatmeal Cookie Week.  I have to admit this version was my favorite.  And actually what inspired my oatmeal cookies kick.  I found a pin on pinterest for lactation cookies and, up until then, I hadn't known they existed.  I was intrigued and, on further inspection, I decided I needed to try this out for myself.  Whether or not they increased my milk supply or not, I can't say for certain.  But they tasted awesome (next time, I'd put in some white chocolate chips too)!

CRANBERRY ALMOND OATMEAL COOKIES


Ingredients:
- 1 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 Tbsp vanilla
- 3 cups oats
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 2 cups craisins (dried cranberries)


Directions:
- Combine the sugar, brown sugar, flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.  Mix until well combined.
- Add in the butter, vanilla and eggs.  Combine.
- Fold in the oats until thoroughly mixed.
- Add chocolate chips.  Mix into batter.
- Drop 1 inch balls onto lightly greased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 350F for 12 minutes.
- Cool on a cooling rack.
- Store in an airtight container.

Chocolate Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Welcome to Day 1 of my unofficial oatmeal cookie week.  Oatmeal cookies just shout "AUTUMN" to me... I don't really know why.  But, I also found some info and oatmeal is a apparently a lactation-booster.  So, I figured it was a win-win.  I get a little bit of Autumn, despite our still warm days, and Baby N gets a little extra treat.  That's right, all those cookies I'm inhaling are for the baby.  I can't shake the last 10 lbs of baby weight, so I might as well embrace it.  Or something.

Anyway.  I took the classic oatmeal raisin cookie and added a bit of chocolate... That's right.  Yum.
