Recipe by Heidi Swanson

These are a nice crisp cookie. A new favorite, a different change from plain peanut butter or plain oatmeal cookies!

These were wonderful! I used crunchy peanut butter because that's all I had and we really enjoyed them. I also used the not-quick oats because that's all I had, and they worked out fine as well. These are really really easy to overbake, so I'm glad that you put that in your method of prep! I think between my husband and I we had about half the batch finished before they had time to cool!! Thanks for sharing!
