Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...


Squirrel Nutkin eat your heart out!

As promised yesterday -

Peanut Butter and Oat Cookies (US measurements)

  • half a cup of brown sugar
  • half a cup of crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Heat oven to 180 deg C
In a bowl mix the peanut butter and sugar until well blended.
Beat in the egg.
Add oats and baking powder.

Mix well then drop tablespoon sized pieces, pressing lightly down, on to a lined baking tray and just for good measure - with added hazel nut on each one.
Cook for 6 - 8 minutes - watch carefully they cook suddenly towards the end. Cool on a rack and store in an air tight container (if they get that far....)

Serve to friends and family and watch them vanish! (the biscuits not friends and family haha) 
It is just like magic :D

Nutty enough to to sate my inner squirrel - peanut butter and oat cookies 
Optional Extra:
whilst waiting for them to cool, sketch with a mug of tea. Bliss.


  1. Yum, dribble, drool . . . all my favourite things. xx

  2. Looks yummy! Love the sketch - you're really talented!

  3. I bet they smelled lovely when warm in the oven. They certainly look lovely in the tin, I've copied down the recipe, thanks x

  4. Ohhhh my!!!!

    How delicious and as the person before me said, they must make the kitchen smell lovely!!!!


  5. Yes they are very delightful. I controlled myself and only ate one biscuit even though I was offered another one. Yum, yum.

  6. They sound delicious. I wonder if they could tempt Lily away from her usual flapjack or gingerbread? X
