Cookies that aren't scary

**We're on bandwidth curfew again (cursed Wildblue) so if I've not been out to read your blog, that's why**

Unlike the cookies that websites like to place on your computer, these cookies I recently baked aren't scary.

Well, caveat one: if you're not paranoid, then computer cookies aren't scary either.

Caveat two: if you have a weight problem or weight-related health issue, then these edible cookies are actually scary.

But we love them! They may be our new favorite cookies. They're...Martha Stewart's Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies!
You need...really, make these. :)  I halved the sugars and used bittersweet instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips and they were still plenty sweet and tasty. I used Whitley's peanuts in these, which, I think, made them taste even better because Whitley's has the most incredible tasting peanuts. I have my buddy Tom to thank for first introducing them to us a couple of years ago with a gift tin!

Because of the copious amounts of oatmeal in this recipe, I like to think that they're not bad for me to eat (20 of in one sitting).

Let me know if you try these, and what you think of them!
