Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies W/ Two Chocolate Drizzle

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies definitely taste as good as they look. :D 

This is a really good cookie!! You know how some cookies are really really sweet, like... too sweet? these aren't like that. NOR are they a super healthy blah cookie, they're kinda like a mix between them, I'm not saying they're blah, they taste healthy-ish and they're the perfect sweetness. :)

Plus who doesn't like peanut butter and chocolate!! O.O *I'm so glad I don't have a nut allergy, sorry for those who do. :( *

I Love The Reflection Of The Chips On The Platter

When I first started to drizzle chocolate onto the cookies it looked pretty ugly, but later I really got the hang of it. :)
These cookies definitely satisfy, 2 cookies and you're done! I must say they're better the next day, they soften up a tad.

I will be making these cookies again in the near future, I hope you will too!!
