Snickers Stuffed Loaded Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Crack out your smelling salts….this dessert is a doozie! Yes, you read that title correctly!! Snickers Stuffed Loaded Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies….A mini snickers bar stuffed inside peanut butter oatmeal cookie dough that happens to be chock full of chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips and rice krispies. Have you fainted yet?

I’m not gonna lie, these are pretty amazing and ridiculous. Every bite is has different tastes and the texture differences between the oats, rice krispies and melted snickers bar seriously drove me crazy. After I tore one of these warm little fat babies open, I was a goner. I think I gasped. LITERALLY gasped, people!!  There are no words to describe the beauty that is this cookie.  I then proceeded to eat an unidentified number of cookies. I would tell you the number, but I just don’t remember….so that equates to…..basically a lot! 

So, besides the smelling salts, have your gym membership cards handy too.

You’re welcome.

Cookie dough

For these cookies, start by mixing some peanut butter, coconut oil, brown sugar and granulated sugar together in a bowl. If you don’t have coconut oil, softened butter works just fine too! 🙂

Adding an egg

To that mixture, add in an egg

Adding vanilla

and some vanilla bean paste. I ran out of my vanilla extract but happened to have this on hand. Totally weird, right? Anyways, for all you normal folk, use plain vanilla. The increments for both are on the printable recipe.

So you’re going to turn your mixer up and whip this mixture so it gets light and fluffy and turns a light coffee color.

Adding dry ingredients

Now comes all the dry ingredients….lots of pantry items here! Stir these in really slow and after they’re incorporated stop mixing.

chocolate chips and rice krispie cereal

Ok, so now you can rummage through your pantries and see what you can find. I always seem to have 17 random 1/4 full bags of chips hanging around, so I tossed a bunch in to clean out my cupboard. Stir these in by hand and you’re ready to go.

Now to assemble these ama-za-za-zing cookies, scoop about 8 cookies out with a small scoop.

    Yum! These look amazing and I love the surprise inside 🙂 I’m obsessed with my vanilla bean paste. I loooove that when you make icing with it, the specks of bean are so prominent!

  2. Sonia the Mexigarian

  9. Diane

    Can’t wait to try these! Might have to make a double batch cuz I’m pretty sure I might have to “sample” quite a few of ’em. Depending on how many got baked after I “sampled” the dough….:-)
