There is just something about a peanut butter cookie recipe that adults and children alike just love.

This recipe is just a bit different.

It adds the flavor of chocolate with the addition of cocoa, plus oats. Oats are one of our top 10 healthiest foods to eat.

    These cookies are really good if you roll them into balls while they are still warm, then roll into fine coconut.
