I love simple cookies. There is nothing better than a good chocolate chip cookie, especially if it’s warm and right out of the oven. I saw this recipe and noticed that it called for five different kinds of chips, peanut butter, AND oats. I thought it might be too much — especially the oats part, as I’ve never been a huge fan of oatmeal cookies. But these cookies were amazing. Such a rich combination of flavors — with a touch of salt. The oats added more texture than taste and the peanut butter wasn’t overpowering. A lot of fancy talk about cookies, right? But trust me. Make these. They are SO SIMPLE and have been added to my all-time favorites list.
