Geez, that’s so typical me. After promising you to share my recipe for the best cookies ever it takes me more than a week to finally deliver. But finally, after a weekend in Hanover and one weekend in Munich it’s finally online! 🙂
Have you heard of the best cookies in the world? No?! Then it’s high time you try them yourself.
I don’t want to brag but…. well, actually I do.
This cookie recipe is the last one you will ever need for the rest of your life. Those peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are perfection.
Crunchy on the outside and soft and buttery on the inside, sweet, peanut buttery, chocolatey and simply what you would expect from a perfect cookie. It won’t get any better, not even the subway cookies can stand up to them.

This incredible recipe has been in my possession for over 5 years now. It is originally from the states where a school friend of mine got if from her host mum. My mother and I changed it here and there, added the European measurements and adjusted the baking time.
In all those years I tested this recipe on so many friends and family members. This cookie recipe made all the members of my best friends flatshare love me instantly. After a night out with much alcohol I made those cookies for the hung over afternoon and that’s how our friendship was set.
My grandpa loved those cookies so much that he ate my uncles share as well. My boyfriend loved them so much he grinned like a little boy and my colleagues asked for the recipe instantly.
You see, I can allege that this is the best cookie recipe of all times and that you defnitely need to add them to your Christmas baking list (or any other recipe list, as cookies are luckily not limited to christmas and winter time exclusively *grins*)
