Crumbly Peanut Butter Cookies

Protein deprivation is a funny thing. It makes you crave all sorts of weird things you never would have eaten before. For me, protein deprivation has opened up the world of peanut butter.

My life will never be the same.

I started eating peanut butter on everything. Seriously, everything. It went on tortillas, fruit, my Halloween candy, pizza, and of course into the things I bake! That’s how I stumbled onto these fabulous cookies! And you’d be surprised how drastically the weird-ed out looks reduced when I brought a bag of peanut butter cookies to math class instead of a bag of peanut butter!

Thoughts:  this is a great take on oatmeal cookies. These cookies are crumbly, absolutely delicious, and perfect for a night with friends to watch the new Harry Potter movie!
Tips:  Before baking, make sure to press down into the shape you want or you’ll get two and a half sheets of cookie balls that aren’t cooked right, make sure you bake these until they’re golden on top.
