food blogger cookies swap [chocolate chip oatmeal fluffernutter cookies]

so as you all know, i recently participated in the first annual food blogger cookie swap. and, after a very long, stressful afternoon in the kitchen, i came up with my recipe to send to my matches. using a base recipe for "monster cookies," i made some additions and changes after several attempts and three batches. here's the final list of ingredients and instructions on how to make your own chocolate chip fluffernutter oatmeal cookies!

chocolate chip fluffernutter oatmeal cookies

2 1/4 cups white whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup of peanut butter
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and both sugars until fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time and then add the vanilla.

Add peanut butter and mix until smooth. Mix in four until just combined. Stir in oats and chips into dough with a wooden spoon.

Drop the dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets, about 3 inches apart. Push in 4-5 marshmallows into each cookie dough ball. Bake for about 12 minutes, until golden. Be sure to chill dough in the fridge in between batches so it stays firm enough to form into doughballs!

**best when warmed in a microwave (unless eating immediately after baking).

***makes about 4 dozen cookies (estimated after several batches of trial and error), feel free to halve the recipe :)

i hope my cookies were enjoyed by ari over at ari's menu, emmarie at bananas and beer, and amy at two true foodies!

i'd also like to thank sarah, alissa and jenny for these delicious cookies!

all in all, this cookie swap was so fun. i mean, who wouldn't want to get cookies in the mail?! surprise cookies, no less. and now i have a ton of new cookie recipes to look through as well as new food blogs! i'm so glad i participated and i can't wait to do it again next year!
