Chocolate Chip Cookies

not my photo...stole it from here
I am in search of THE BEST cookie recipe.  And I like to use oatmeal.  Do you have a recipe that you love?  It doesn't have to be clean or healthy, but it does have to be peanut free.  I think that is what I am missing, some yummy peanut butter in there!  Last batch of the camping cookies, I added a little sunbutter.  Almost as good as the peanut butter...

These are two of my favorite cookie recipes, but I am interested in finding a traditional recipe that I like, too.
 I usually add a little flax to these recipes.

    I've been adding Rice Crispies to my cookies since I found this recipe...i love the little extra yumminess in the texture.

I am thinking about adding M&Ms to your camping cookies. And maybe butterscotch chips.

Now, I just need to remember that I want to try these next week. It's been ages since I baked cookies.

We make this one with a few changes. We half the recipe shown, skip the nuts and hershey bar, and add 3 T. less of flour. It's perfect and so delicious!

Thanks for posting the camping cookies- there isn't much flour so it might be a good recipe to try change to allergy-free.

My fave as of late...
* 1 cup whole wheat flour
* 1 cup oats
* 2 tsp. baking powder
* 1/2 tsp. salt
* 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
* 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
* 1/2 cup butter, softened
* 1/2 cup sunflower butter
* 1/2 cup brown sugar
* 1 egg
* 1/4 cup milk
* For sweet, I add some chopped dates, toffee bits and a little dark chocolate

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add sunflower butter and mix. Beat in the egg, then the milk. Stir in the flour mixture and oats. Stir in the sweets. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto cookie sheets. Bake 12-14 minutes or until browned around the edges.

Shredded coconut would probably be a nice addition too. Mmmmm.... :)
