One simple thing never fails to make the man of this home happy. When Joshua chooses dessert, we have these cookies. I could get away with serving just about anything for dinner, as long as these little gems followed. ;)
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
2/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 eggs **
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour (up to half wheat)
2 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup peanuts
3/4 cup chocolate chunks
Combine butters. Add sugars, baking powder and baking soda. Beat 'til smooth. Add eggs and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients.
Drop by tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes or until edges are just slightly browned.
** I've begun replacing one of the eggs with a Tbsp each of soy flour and water and it's worked great. Thanks Gayle!
Anyway, here's the menu for the week... and hopefully none of the dishes will require these cookies to make amends for it.
Granola with dried fruit
Eggs and toast
Cooked oatmeal or cold cereal
Scrambled eggs and cinnamon bread
Monday- Harvest chowder with homemade crackers and cheese (homemade crackers that is, not cheese)
Tuesday- Chicken burritos
Wednesday- Dinner with friends
Thursday- Taco lasagna
Friday- Creamed chicken on wheat biscuits
Saturday- Lentil rice casserole and salad.
