A cookie recipe two days in a row you ask?! Why yes I did, and it’s only because I love you all so much ๐Ÿ™‚ And also because I have hardly posted any desserts lately and I am trying to make up for lost time.ย  Oh, and I believe every day should involve cookies, don’t you agree?ย  Especially when those cookies are as fluffy and delicious as these!ย  This is one of the most delicious cookies I’ve had in a long time and each one is packed with goodies.ย  My sister-in-law, Missy, turned me on to this recipe after raving about how good they were and how they tasted like bakery-style cookies (even though she neglected to bring me one, so I had to try them out for myself HA HA).ย  They were as good as she said!ย  If you love fluffy oatmeal cookies, youโ€™ll adore these. Theyโ€™re made with some of my favorite ingredients: whole wheat flour, oats, dark brown sugar, peanut butter and chocolate (of course).

Honestly, I normally prefer cookies warm out of the oven, but these cookies were actually even better the NEXT day.ย  I am not quite sure how they managed to taste better the next day, but there ya have it.ย  I sincerely hope you make these at some point in your life…you will be happy you did.
