Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

I needed to bring a dessert to a dinner party last night and thought that my cookies (albeit amazingly addictive) were not quite enough, so I made homemade cashew milk for dunking purposes. It is sweet and creamy and delicious and satisfies my yearning for dairy as well as dessert. I have included both recipes below. I hope they take you back to childhood!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter/Earth Balance/or coconut oil (I prefer earth balance)
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup spelt flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat oven: 350 degrees
-In a medium bowl, combine Earth Balance (or butter/coconut oil), cane sugar and brown sugar and stir until smooth
– Add peanut butter, vanilla, egg and stir.
– Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl
– Stir dry ingredients into the batter just until smooth
– Mix in the oats and chocolate chips until evenly distributed
– Roll small balls of batter in your hands and place on cookie sheet lightly greased with coconut oil/butter
– Bake for 10 to 12 minutes
– Dunk in cashew milk!
