Two things first though...
|My sister in law made us this vanilla last year for Christmas. I've used it a lot and want to make my own!! Taste wise, I can't tell the difference between this and the store bought imitation vanilla, but I like that I know what's in it.|
|And this cookie scoop rocks!! I got it as a Christmas gift a while back and can't remember the brand or anything, but it's a stainless steel scoop, and I love it!!|
|I like my cookies soft inside, so I don't bake them as long as they say. It made a lot more than I thought it would, so we'll be sending some home with my niece. You know...I had a baby and still working on widdling away my waste.|
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup regular oats
Mix everything together and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Once done, remove to cool on cookie sheets. Makes 2 dozen.
**I feel like there's a lot you could do to personalize or change up this recipe. I think it would be good with coconut, mini chocolate chips, white chips, mini m&ms, craisins or raisins, or any nut. Enjoy!!
