SKIPPY® Best Ever Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies #Skippy4july

Peanut Butter. I absolutely bloomin' LOVE the stuff. Simply can not get enough of it. It does however seem to be a bit of a Marmite food. We have two lovers and two haters in this house. SKIPPY® is the iconic Peanut Butter brand who have been manufacturing in the USA since 1932. I always pick up a gigantic jar of Skippy Crunchy when I'm in Costco. It would be rude not to. Despite not having a particularly sweet tooth I can't resit a PB desert, milkshake, cake or cookie. One of my most popular recent posts has been Peanut Butter Ice Lollies, made with Skippy Smooth and I really must get round to recreating a recipe from my childhood with Peanut Butter, Crunchy Nut Cornflakes and Chocolate. 
Today being the 4th of July is of course Independence Day. If you fancy throwing a birthday party for the land of the free, this famous SKIPPY® cookie recipe is sure to pack a patriotic peanutty punch…#Skippy4july

    1. I only discovered Peanut Butter as a teenager. It would have been way too exotic for the North of Scotland in my childhood.
