One of the best things about oatmeal cookies is that you can pretend that they're good for you! With all that oatmeal, it has to be healthy, right?
Yes. Let's go with that.

Little cookie soldiers, all lined up.
Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
1 3/4 c. butter, softened to room temperature
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 c. flour
2 c. old fashioned oats
1/2 bag peanut butter chips (about 1 c. or so)
I used a teaspoon-sized cookie scoop for mine. Bake for about 8-10 minutes at 375. You need to remove them to a rack to cool within a couple minutes of them leaving the oven, as they will become one with the pan if you don't.
I suppose if you want, you can leave out the cinnamon and the ground cloves.
Here's the finished product, cooling on a rack. I really am trying to take better photos. It doesn't seem to be working.
