PBOCC Cookies

PBOCC, peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip that is. Mmmm, just seeing those five initials makes me salivate. It all started at the best little cookie shop, The Colorado Cookie Company, in Southlands Mall. (If you live in Colorado, you must stop there the next time you are at Southlands.) They have between 10 and 20 delectable cookie varieties available at any given time. Every time we go to Southlands we stop in for a cookie, and for me it is a PBOCC every time. I have been on the hunt to replicate this cookie since the first time I bit into one. Here it is and it is worth every single calorie!
(As a side note, this recipe doesn't have any flour. I think that makes it gluten free!)

This recipe comes from and is listed as Monster Cookies. I cut the original recipe in half and had more than enough cookies (about 2 dozen giant cookies!). Here is the halved recipe for ya.
PBOCC Cookies
3 eggs
1 cup plus 5 Tbs. packed brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup butter
1 1/3 cups peanut butter (I used crunchy, but creamy works too!)
4 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (I added a cup of white chocolate chips as well because I'm crazy like that)

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease cookie sheets. 
-Cream butter and peanut butter together. Add the sugars and stir until well mixed. 
-Add eggs one at a time, then add vanilla. 
-Mix oatmeal and baking soda separately, then stir into batter. 
-Add chocolate chips last. 
-Drop by heaping teaspoons onto cookie sheets. Bake for 12-15 minutes. 
(I made them slightly bigger than golf balls and put 5 on a sheet. Then I pressed them down slightly before baking them and they were big and beautiful!) 

Just 5 on a sheet makes big and beautiful cookies!
My husband and brother-in-law are particular about their cookies, and they would not stop raving about these ones. Seriously. They are the best cookies ever. I'm not joking. Do yourself a favor and go make some.

So I made your "Sour Cream Chicken Fingers" tonight and they were the BEST chicken fingers i have ever made. Bret was saying "how are they still so moist" and I told him "That's exactly what she said the sour cream would do!" I'm so glad you have this blog.

Jen, I hope you guys enjoy them. You need to come back son so I have an excuse to make them again because we definitely don't need so many huge, yummy cookies sitting around here for me to eat all day!

Whitney, I'm so glad you liked them. It's always great to know somebody reads this thing and gets something out of it! I am LOVING ask the duplex. Unfortunately I know nothing about fashion and have no advice, but I love hearing what everyone else has to say!
