Outrageous Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

My sweet friend, Libby, from posted a recipe a few days ago for some outrageous chocolate chip cookies.

Check out her post for the original recipe: She gives a couple of great tips about how to make these super healthy by using whole wheat flour and less sugar.

The cookies sounded amazing just as they are, but since I am a bigger peanut butter fan than I am a chocolate fan,I tweaked the recipe a little. I substituted the chocolate chips for a mixture of reeses peanut butter chips and mini chocolate chips. The result was delicious-the perfect soft, chewy cookie. I shared some with my family and friends who also agreed that this recipe is a keeper! So, thanks, Libby :). Libby also has a super-cute etsy store where she sells handmade dog beds, adorable little girls dolls, and beautiful ladies necklaces and headbands. I personally own several of her necklaces and headbands, and I get compliments whenever I wear them. I have included a picture of me modeling her headband. Check out her etsy shop-you will love it! She is even having a sale on the dolls and necklaces this month. All necklaces are $10 with free shipping and the dolls are buy one get one half off. They would make perfect Easter gifts :).
