Crunchy PB & Nutella Oatmeal Cookies

You know, it’s just wrong to wake up at 445am. The sun is not up at 445am, my neighbors are all still nestled in their beds, and even the neighborhood dogs haven’t started their daily symphony of barkfest.

Who’s up at 445am, this girl…did I mention it was Saturday…and Sunday. Did I mention I welcome all forms of sympathy in the comment section of this blog? You can also feel free to tell me I look pretty today.

You know what else is wrong…your mom…sorry I get snarky when I have to get up so early.

You know what else is wrong? Did you happen to notice (those of you that employ the NickJr channel for on the fly babysitting) Did you notice that at 7pm they have started something called Nick Mom??? This means no cartoons..starting at 7!!! This is unacceptable NickJr.

I have a list of 79.5 things that need done between the hours of 7pm -8pm, and NickJr obviously has it out for me.

I will not be sending anyone working for NickJr these cookies.

Delightfully borrowed from Simply Scratch

Ingredients (slightly altered):

1 whole Egg
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1 tablespoon Whole Milk
3/4 cup Crunchy Peanut Butter
1/4 cup Nutella
1 cup Old Fashioned Oats
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 Salt


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a pan with parchment.

In your mixer add the egg, brown sugar, milk, pb and Nutella. Mix just until smooth.
Add in the salt, baking soda and oats and mix again.

Drop big old dollops onto the prepared pan and place the cookie sheet into the preheated oven for 8 minutes.

Once the cookies are out of the oven, let them cool just a little bit – then dig in, even if it’s 445am in the morning.

Irresistible cookies! I am a big fan of that paste and love rolled oats...

I love the baby spoon in that jar of milk! :) I think I would die if my baby got me up that early on a regular basis. Hope these cookies help ease the pain!

Michele said...

Uggg! I cry when my almost 4-year-old wakes me up at 6am!! I couldn't imagine any earlier. And I thought it was pretty funny I just ripped open a new jar of nutella and started into it with a spoon, right before I read your post!

Taste and Tell said...

Yeah, I don't know what's up with the new NickJR programming. I'm not a fan...

But I know I'd be a fan of these cookies - they look amazing!!

Tessa said...

Sorry about no sleep! Looks like these cookies may have made it better? They look delicious!

teresa said...

what in the heck is nick mom? they don't deserve those amazing looking cookies!

Chris said...

Let your kids watch South Park, Brickleberry, and Family Guy instead ;) :)

I thought that was a toothbrush in the milk until someone else said it was a baby spoon.

4:45am sucks unmentionables.

You look hot today. Don't tell your hubby I said so, just following directions ;)

Sara Louise said...

OMG I too employ Nick Jr. to babysit my 5 year old while putting my 2 year old to bed. I come out and she's watching adult "Nick Jr." programing??? What the heck?

Also, I was just being really sad about not having any babies under 2. Thank you for reminding me how hard it is to get up before 5 am. I feel for you... That's just rough.

These cookies are amazing.

Sorry I forgot to get back to you about my cute spoons. I haven't forgotten ;) I ordered them from but I also just saw them here:
