This recipe for peanut butter oatmeal cookies is incredibly simple. These cookies are dense, sweet, and full of rich peanut butter flavor. Colorado doesn’t have time for soft cookies. Soft cookies get busted to bits on the bumpy roads that lead us to unforgettable weekend spots. They’ll melt in the glorious sunshine and get frozen into a shapeless blob when the temperatures drop at night. They’ll be smashed to crumbs after a long hike. Not these cookies, though. The day after these cookies are baked, they develop a perfect crunchiness. A crunch that’s akin to how I see Colorado. Rugged. Sturdy. Strong. And still so sweet.
