Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies with Coconut Oil

absolutely LOVE these cookies. The recipe (found here) originally called for shortening, and I used coconut oil. 12 minutes at 350° was just perfect. I also created a Steller Story for this recipe, find it here

I found that my 1 Tbsp. silicone measuring spoon (similar ones here) is perfect for scooping and shaping this dough!

You can (optionally) press the dough down with a fork in a criss cross pattern, and sprinkle sugar on top. The cookies will spread a bit more if you do this step.

After baking for 12 minutes at 350, they should look golden brown like this! If you make these cookies and enjoy them, please comment below. Thanks!
