gigantoid peanut butter oatmeal cookies

With big beautiful organic chocolate chips, of course.
From Vegan with a Vengeance.

I made these for my boyfriend’s roommate, who had the most craptastic week ever.

In the span of five days he got fired from his job; hit by a car, so hard that he rolled over the windshield but not hard enough to go to the hospital (the driver didn’t stop); mugged by four guys (when they couldn’t find his wallet in his pockets they scratched his face with a knife); and had his bike tire slashed randomly.

How horrific is that? It’s like Murphey’s Law, but if it were speedballing.

He needed some sugary love. Some gigantoid love. And these cookies will deliver. Chewy, crunchy (if you let them sit out for a couple our like I did), peanut-buttery, glorious, huge-ass cookies. I wish I had one with me right now.



  1. I totally made these yesterday.
    They were HUGE! And I didn’t even make them the regular size.

  2. Haha, so funny that you AND Romina just made those cookies – that IS a tantalizing recipe, for sure!

    Oh my goodness gracious, I’m terribly sorry about all that your boyfriend’s roommate has had to endure – no one deserves that. Kudos to you for baking such scrumptious baked goods for him.

  4. That’s very nice of you, hopefully the cookies are good enough to soothe his soul a little, poor guy.

  6. Wow those cookies look awesome. But if you have to go through that kind of angst (i.e., Murphey’s Law, but if it were speedballing) to get them, I think I’ll pass.

    But they look damn tasty. I hope your friend is feeling better.

  8. I am not sure why I haven’t made these yet, but your post has convinced me to do it.
