Chocolate Chunk PB Oaties

Chocolate Chuck PB Oaties
Adapted from: Incredibly Easy Cake Mix cookbook (Favorite Brand Name)

OBJ: TCW be able to bake some goodies for her family and use up all the holiday chocolate in her secret stashJ

1 package yellow cake mix
1 tsp baking powder
¾ C vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 C uncooked old-fashioned oats
2 C chocolate chunks (I used all sorts of pure milk chocolate bars I had, but you can use what you can’t stand staring at anymore!)
¼ C creamy peanut butter, melted in a microwave safe bowl (see #2 below)

1.      Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, place parchment paper on 2 large baking sheets
2.      Melt your peanut butter: place pb in bowl, microwave on high for 30 seconds, stir until creamy
3.      Stir together cake mix and baking powder in large bowl. Add oil, eggs, and vanilla; beat by hand until well blended
4.      Stir in oats, chocolate chunks, and pb
5.      Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Using a fork, press each cookie down slightly in a cris-cross fashion
6.      Bake for 14 minutes, rotating ½ way through cooking time
7.      Remove from oven when edges are lightly browned, let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes
8.      Remove from sheet and place on wire rack to completely cool

** These are definitely a buttery cookie, which is odd because there isn’t any butter in them! They are also quite crispy, I usually prefer a chewy cookie but these go well with milk to dunk. Finally, I will be taking extras and making chipwiches with them, amazing I knowJ**
