Lemon Lemon Loaf

September 21, 2010

And due my constant need to try various incarnations of peanut butter, I decided to bake/devour these peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies instead.

I'm so easy when it comes to falling for foods based solely on their appearance. Of course these brownies have a sinfully rich taste and moist fudgy texture, but they're so pretty too!
