Chocolate Peanut Oatmeal Cookies

Sick kids result in many days spent in the solitude of home.  With naps and low energy from the littlest in the family, I had extra time to ponder the cabinets.  What can we use up?  My husband put in a half-joking request for chocolate chip cookies.  Soon discovered to be a no-go -- no chocolate chips.  However, we did have coco powder and peanut butter chips.  Modified into a Betty Crocker Oatmeal Cookie recipe, here was the result.

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 oil
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup coco
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 egg
1 and 1/2 cup oats
1 cup flour

Mix the dry, then mix the wet ingredients, then mix them all together.  Bake at 375 for 10 minutes. Delicious treat!  We are having fun working our way through the cabinets.  Continued illness today by our kindergartener means he'll be home from school tomorrow.  Home with his frugal Mama.  I'll be spending some time in the kitchen.
