Pretty much every time I go to Josh's parents' now I also bring along some little treat to share. I know his parents are still uncomfortable with vegan food, so I figure anything I can bring to make sure there's something I can eat helps!
This time I was in the mood for a peanut butter oatmeal cookie, and came across this recipe which I scaled down and modified just a bit. The cookies were a big winner - especially with Josh's dad who isn't normally big on sweets (which means it's particularly ringing endorsement!). I'll definitely be making these a lot in the future.
One of my favorite things about these cookies is that they aren't too sweet, so you don't feel sick afterwards! I made 1/3 of the recipe and came out with 19 cookies a little bigger than a quarter. I also nixed the chocolate chips, used creamy peanut butter, and used plain white flour rather than wheat. I did use salt, even though it said optional. Another tip from my experience: after spooning onto a baking sheet, press down each cookie a bit because they won't sink on their own. The back row in the picture are the cookies I didn't press down - still tasty, just a little less attractive.
