"Not Bad" Cookies

I made these cookies for our upcoming trip. I like to have lots of snacks along so we don't have to stop for fast food (not that we won't, but so we don't have to do it often). They are a tad on the healthy side with the whole wheat flour, and they really don't taste that bad. Don't get me wrong, they are not "wipe-the-drool-off-your-chin" delicious, but they are fairly decent and my kids love 'em. I have to admit that I found these a few weeks ago on another blog, and I totally forget where so I can't even give credit!! Yikes.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies:

1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup natural peanut butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup oats
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cream butter, sugars, and peanut butter until smooth. Beat in eggs. Combine dry ingredients and then add to creamed mixture. Mix in oats. Drop by spoonful onto ungreased cookie sheets.
3. Bake 10-15 minutes until light brown. Don't over bake.

I have not tried making the switch to whole wheat four in my baking yet. Maybe I will give these a try.

I just made the applesauce muffins from Deceptively Delicious - they are in the oven as I type. I'm so going to take a photo and blog about them! ;) Enjoy your trip!

Ahhh... but how is the BATTER???
After all, isn't it true that only about half of the dough actually makes it into the oven? The real testament to any good cookie recipe ;)
