Ok fast forward to 2015 ....I made these wonderful cookies with chunky peanut butter and did not add additional nuts. I also used M & M's instead of the chocolate. What could be better than a peanut butter oatmeal cookie with M & M's! wow these are good.

Awesome cookies! Used maple extract and instead of nuts, added an extra handful of chocolate chunks. Was lazy so stirred in all of the oats and chocolate without decorating the tops. Made the cookies a little larger than regular cookies, but not 1/4 cup size. Great cookies, perfect for lunch boxes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
