My mom’s crazy about these cookies.

After falling head over heals for Peanut Butter & Co’s White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter, I should’ve created a recipe combining white chocolate and PB immediately. Why it’s taken me so long still confounds me.

Luckily, you won’t have the chance to repeat my mistake. Because, there’s just no reason not to make these cookies!

Why’s that? Well first off, because the recipe’s just plain easy! The main ingredients are simple: oat flour, peanut butter, and white chocolate chips. Other than that, you’ve got an egg, a bit of baking powder, and a touch of vanilla- then pop them in the oven and behold a masterpiece the minute the oven dings: sweet, warm peanut butter white chocolate chip cookies.

These pictures are obviously the before-picture, because the after-picture (aka about 2 hours later) the cookies had ceased to be nothing but crumbs.

Which were gracefully swept into my hand- then dumped not-so-gracefully into my mouth! πŸ˜‰
