I call these my "Oatie" cookies... my boyfriend chuckles at me when I use this childish name for them, but the name has stuck. These were the first cookies I attempted after my diagnosis. The simple idea of a cookie was so wonderful, I ate 2 before they had even cooled!
I got this recipe from my Mom's handwritten recipe book... this is the recipe book she started when she got married 37 years ago, so I cannot give credit to the exact origin of these drop cookies.
The recipe originally called for coconut. I am not a fan of coconut, so I substituted peanuts and have been very happy with that choice. Otherwise, the below is verbatim copied from Mom's book.
