Oatmeal Chocolate Chip NutButter Cookies

Who doesn’t love a good cookie?  Chewy? Check! Chocolatey? Check! Nuttbuttery?  Check!!  

All the things you could want in one cookie!  I have been known to make these using sunbutter (to go to school safely) and almond butter (we have a peanut allergy in this house!) but if you are a die-hard PB fan I won’t stop you from using it here!  Why not try a hazelnut butter or cashew or Brazilnut?  There are some delicious nut butters available out there (or easily made from scratch at home!) so go wild here if you want!

Notes

If using sunbutter (sun flower seed butter) please note that there is often a reaction between the sun butter and other ingredients when baking that will result in the centre of the cookies being a lovely green colour!  This is totally normal (and kinda cool if you’re baking with kids!) so don’t panic!

You can use milk chocolate chips if you prefer those.  We just like the dark ones best here!

These make great neighbour gifts when they shovel your driveway or keep your kids entertained! 😉
