This cookie is filled with tons of flavors! This is a treat for peanut butter lovers! With peanut butter, crushed peanuts, and tons of Butterfinger bits in this butter cookie, every bite is addictive! Make sure to bake a couple of batches as they are going to gone right out of the oven. These are soft and chewy eggless cookies!
The cookies have peanuts in three ways. Peanut butter, crushed peanuts, and Butterfinger bits. The addition of crushed peanuts and Butterfinger bits elevates the flavor of this cookie than the regular peanut butter cookies. The Butterfinger crunch here and there is a trip to heaven in every bite! Do not skip this. If you do not have the butterfinger bits, just rough chop or crush Butterfingers and use in the recipe.
I have used Taylor & Collidge Vanilla bean paste. This paste is amazing than regular vanilla. The vailla beans paste enhances the flavor of this cookie as it is a little stronger. It is amazing. This is my opinion and you could use regular vanilla too.
This cookie is made with oats. Grab a couple these and make it a good breakfast or a great snack. The peanuts are rich in protein and heart healthy oats make this a guilt free one to indulge. If you love oats like me, then this Double Chocolate Cherry Almond Oatmeal Cookies is another perfect one to try. These are also easy to wrap and give as amazing hoiday gifts for neighbors and friends. For a nut lover, along with this cookie try Pistachio Rose Cookies and Coconut Cookies.
I am sharing this recipe for Shhhh! Cooking Secretly Challenge group. We partner up and give two secret ingredients to each other and whip up delicious recipes for the chosen theme. Then the fun begins. We share the picture and start guessing the secret ingredients!:-) My partner is Renu from CookwithRenu (she made a delicious Semolina Cake). Nuts and sugar are the secret ingredients given to me. The theme for this month was "Christmas Bakes". With nuts and sugar, there is tons of possibilities! But cookies are the season's best snack or even edible gifts. Even Santa has to have a lot of cookies. Each home will leave atleast two cookies and multiplied by the population.... (just trying to get the math done:-))Well, it is better to bake enough cookies! That's the verdict and here is the recipe I baked for the challenge.
I am also sharing this to 4th Annual Holiday Cookie Recipe, Wonderful Wednesday, and Happiness is Homemade.
