    Love these. They are even better if you put a little bit of salt on top before making fork marks.

    Subbed gluten-free flour and xanthan gum and added about 1/2 cup of oat milk. Chewy and delicious!!

    They were moist and delicious. I even burned some and the family loved it.

    Not very flavorful compared to other recipes I've tried. It's now an emergency backup but not part of my regular recipe selection.

    Really good! I used gluten free flour instead of oat and they turned out great! Also, used cashew milk instead of water!

    Amazing!!! Followed the recipe (with 1 c flour as suggested for chewy). It’s my new go-to for pb cookies!

    Amazing. Made one batch vegan and the other I added bacon! Bother we’re a hit!

    Very simple and quite tasty. Only difference, I only used 2/3 sugar and that was plenty. If you put the batter in the freezer, it turns out like peanut buttery cookie dough, too!

    Hi, Roz! 5 years ago
    These were pretty good! I changed my review because after they cool down and sit for a while, they are much better. 🙂

    They were the perfect combination of soft, chewy, and crispy! They stayed fresh for a long time, too!

    The recipe is quite healthy. It was also very simple both in term of ingredients and steps, and the preparation and cooking time was very short. Also, the cookies taste great!
