Our trip to the Great Harvest Bread store left me craving for peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. Thank goodness they are about 50 minutes away otherwise I would have gone back for seconds.
Mr. J swore the sign by this particular cookie said flourless. I was not convince based on the texture and appearance of the cookie that it truly was flourless. I tried to do a quick google search and this is what I found. Great Harvest uses (for the most part) a pretty basic cookie recipe and they always use whole wheat flour. I tried to find some recipes online but they all seemed a bit off. I definitely do not want a cookie described as crispy. And most of the recipes did not have any oatmeal; the ones that did only had a small quantity.
What we came up with was not the Great Harvest cookie, although it was close. It was however delicious, gooey, and very peanut buttery. Now I have another chance to practice self restraint all week. Perfect!
