Peanut Butter Oatmeal White Chocolate Cookies

Peanut Butter Oatmeal White Chocolate Cookies…need to say more? This recipe combines three of my favorite types of cookies, chocolate chip, peanut butter and oatmeal. If you are a fan of soft and very chewy cookies, then you are going to love these babies! This week Andrew and I are vacationing in Arizona. We have planned to spend a few days in Sedona, a few days in the Grand Canyon, and then to Scottsdale where Andrew will spend three days at a Dermatopathology conference. Right now we are in Sedona. If you have never been to Sedona, Arizona you are really missing out! Sedona’s famous red rocks are absolutely breathtaking. We arrived here last night to see the tops of the rocks covered in snow. The bright white against the red looked amazing. We were told that seeing snow on top of the rocks this time of year is very rare. The next few days are supposed to warm back up and be mostly sunny, which leaves Andrew and I great weather for hiking Sedona’s famed rocks. Have you ever been to Sedona, Arizona? If so, I would love to hear about some great activities and restaurants that shouldn’t be missed!

    I literally just flew home from a week in Sedona and Scottsdale! I’m working on a post now about all of the excellent food I ate while I was there. If you get a chance, you must stop in Flagstaff on the way to the Grand Canyon and try the best Mexican food I’ve ever eaten at Salsa Brava. Also, in Scottsdale, my favorite restaurant was True Food. Enjoy and I hope you enjoy your time there as much as I did!

      How funny that you just got home from here too! I love Mexican food so we will definitely stop at Salsa Brava on the way up the the Grand Canyon! :) Thanks so much for the recommendations!

    This sounds like cookie heaven – all that’s missing for me are a few dark chocolate chips! Yum!

    For some reason I’ve never thought of putting white chocolate in oatmeal cookies before. White chocolate is my FAVORITE! I actually dislike regular chocolate, especially dark. Can’t wait to make these!

    Made these twice now. My husband says that they are the best cookies he has ever had. We love them. I love how they aren’t dry. It is so so so hard to make a cookie that taste like peanut butter that is not dry!!
