BIG GIGANTOID CRUNCHY PEANUT BUTTER OATMEAL COOKIES.
That's actually what the title is in the book. (VWAV.)
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup unsalted crunchy Peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup vanilla soymilk
2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350'F.
Toss together the flour, oats, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the oil, peanut butter, sugars, soy milk, and vanilla.3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix. The dough should be very difficult and moist.
Pack a 1/3-cup (I used 1/4) measuring cup with dough, pop out and roll the dough into a firm ball and flatten just barely on a prepared cookie sheet, spacing the dough balls well apart. Lightly grease the bottom of a glass or heavy ceramic pie plate [I used the bottom of a frying pan.)press the cookies to flatten to a 1/2-inch thickness. Bake for 12-15 minutes until cookies have puffed a bit and are lightly browned. Allow to cool for at least ten minutes before moving off the cookie sheet.
SO good. You can see I added chocolate chips;oK Bye:)
