These simple peanut butter cup cookies will be a hit at your holiday cookie exchange.
The holidays are upon us and I’ve got cookies on the brain. This year my annual cookiepocalypse has been greatly scaled back since I don’t have nearly as many people to share with since moving to Oakland, but that’s not stopping me from experimenting with some new recipes.
The winning recipe from all my experiments are these salted peanut butter cup oatmeal cookies. They sound way more complicated than they actually are.
Inspiration struck while I was shopping the bulk bin section at my most favoritest grocery store recently, Sprouts Farmers Market.
I’m super fortunate to have been able to partner with Sprouts this year. It was my favorite store in San Diego, and I was stoked to see they recently opened a store here in Oakland.
The bulk bin section is my favorite part about Sprouts. Pretty much ANYTHING is available in the bulk bins which is great for those who are cooking up a little or a lot. You can buy only as much as you need.
When I say ANYTHING, I mean anything including miniature peanut butter cups, rolled oats, and sea salt.
I think you see where I’m going with this.
I took a classic chocolate chip oatmeal cookie and substituted these super cute mini peanut butter cups, and sprinkled each cookie with a little flake sea salt. Talk about a winning combination………possibly.
Sprouts organized a little bulk bin cookie recipe exchange/competition between me and a few other bloggers. I’ll find out soon enough if my recipe was a winning recipe, but in the meantime, I received some great cookies made from Sprouts bulk bin ingredients from two other bloggers. A delicious chocolate orange cookie, and a white chocolate fruit and nut pretzel bark. Both will be hard to beat so keep your fingers crossed for me!
