For the last week or so, I've been jotting down notes, folding back book pages and making mental notes: "blog about that". Clearly, I've done a phenomenal job of doing it. ;) So in lieu of a long random post (which is coming...), here's a recent recipe that I altered enough to feel fairly confident calling it my own. They're amazing, and surprisingly, vegan (if you make the suggested alterations). 

The aptly named "Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies" :

-3/4 c. flour
-1/2 tsp. baking soda
-1/4 tsp. baking powder
-1/2 tsp. salt (only if peanut butter is unsalted)
-1/2 c. butter/margarine
-1/2 c. peanut butter
-1/2 c. sugar
-1/2 c. light brown sugar
-1 egg (or 1 banana)
-1 tsp. vanilla
-1 c. oats (or 2 packages of instant oatmeal)
-chocolate chips/nuts to taste
Oven: 350°
1. Soften butter, cream with sugars. Add peanut butter, vanilla, and egg (or mashed banana) and mix. Blend in dry ingredients, and drop in teaspoonfulls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for approximately 10 minutes, then remove. Cookies may appear undercooked, but will harden as they cool. Enjoy!
