Peanut Butter Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

It’s time for one of my favorite posts of the month. I love The Secret Recipe Club because I have discovered so many fabulous blogs from the link ups four Mondays a month.This month I was assigned Meet the Swans which is one of the original blogs. This is a new to me blog so as soon as I received the email I dived right into the recipe archives.

Krista has an amazing selection of desserts and this German Brownie Torte, the Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars, and these Rain Doughnuts  were calling my name. Since I seem to have a slight thing for chocolate and peanut butter, peanut butter and oatmeal and chocolate, peanut butter, and oatmeal I decided these  Choco-Oat Peanut Butter Cookies would be perfect to make.

I made a couple of small changes to the recipe. The original called for a homemade fudge sauce and I used plain old chocolate syrup because I had that on hand.  I also chilled the dough for a couple of hours before baking to the let the butter harden  to minimize cookie spread.
