My new favorite cookie

I would be surprised if anyone does not like this recipe. 
I gave up cookies a few years ago, but then I found this recipe...from my niece Julie, and I've become a baker again.


Check out the recipe HERE from my niece's blog for PBOCC Cookies!

Since the recipe has no flour I guess it could be considered gluten free, right? If that matters to anyone. 

I use to bake cookies nearly every day because my boys would come home looking for treats after school.   I wish I had known about PBOCCs back then since these are hearty and filling with all that peanut butter and oatmeal in them. 


Last week when we went to see my Dad and Susan, guess what they served us? PBOCCs! They like them too.
For those of you who think I must be making this all up since I don't like chocolate.... I just take mine out.


And another niece, Carly, is due to give birth again. She is ready and does not hold back telling us so. I don't know if she means to be funny, but she makes me laugh.  Check it out here.

I love these cookies. I'm glad you posted the link to Julie's blog so I can get her recipe. I can't wait to make these for myself!

They look delicious!! I just can't imagine they are not made with flour. I just copied the recipe and will try them in the near future. Thanks for sharing!

mmmmm - hypothetically speaking, of course, how well do think a batch would ship to, say, North Logan, UT? ;)

Carly said...

Best. Cookies. Ever. Well at least in the top five, for sure.

And I am past the nesting stage, gave up trying to keep busy, now I just pray a lot and try to picture my water breaking- as if I could think it into being.

Maybe tonight??

I'm glad you like them. I keep thinking I should make them again, but then I don't because I know I will eat the whole batch! I love the flavor combinations of the peanut butter, chocolate, and oatmeal...yummy!

Carly~~ I was really hoping you would have the baby this past weekend because we just came by Visalia today on our way home from LA. But we will come back just as soon as you are ready to see us. I'll bring you some food, too :)

Maybe she will be born on your Mom's birthday tomorrow!

Grandma Honey said...

Ryan~ I would send you some of these cookies tomorrow if I thought they would stand a chance of arriving without melted choc chips! So I'll send some with Dennis when he comes in a few weeks. :) Hypothetically speaking, I mean.

Grandma Honey said...

Julie~ And I LOVE the white choc chips the best!

I will try these cookies. My daughter is getting married in August and wants to serve cookies for refreshments. I've made cookies and have been putting them in the freezer. I'll definitely make these. I think if I make them smaller, they'll be "wedding worthy". Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Sue said...

I need to try these.

I LOVE those PBOCC cookies. I made them a few weeks ago and was blown away at how good they are!

Karen Mortensen said...

Those look and sound really good. I will be expecting my shipment next week. LOL I may come down there again this summer. If I do, will you make them for me?

Dad and Susan said...

We love the cookies too (as you know.) My daughter wants them to be less crisp and suggests we bake them for only 11-12 minutes and not the 14 minutes your dad does. He likes them crisp and it seems to be against his "instinct" to bake them less. I'll try to intervene here one of these days. Love, Dad and Susan

Grandma Honey said...

Susan~ I'm like my Dad, I like my cookies nearly burnt....but I don't make them for others that way.

Karen~ If you let me know when you'll be in town, I'll make you some cookies, YES :)

grandmapeg said...

I made the cookies today! They're pretty good!

Many gluten intolerant people have a problem with oats.

Grandma Honey said...

Yolanda~ I do remember hearing that oats can be a problem, but Bob's Red Mill makes gluten free oats.

Easy Short Bread
