AND it’s versatile and can be used in a slow cooker OR an instant pot, which means less time in the kitchen and more time with your family.
Why do you have to choose between peanut butter cookies, oatmeal cookies, and chocolate chip cookies? This Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie by Buns In My Oven recipe is one that is sure to please everyone because it’s got a little bit of everything that makes it delicious and unique.
