Even my peanut butter cookies have gone over to the dark side.
Peanut butter cookies are essential Americana, but these are slightly less sweet, and the molasses adds a sombre note.
1/2 cup sugar
tablespoon of molasses (be generous)
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
½ cup peanut butter (be generous)
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup oats
1 cup plain wholewheat flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
Mix the first four ingredients together until light, add the next two and beat, then add the rest and amalgamate. Scoop out in teaspoonfuls, flatten with a fork and bake at 375 ish (200F) until they smell wonderful.
