    1. Preheat oven to 180C. Grease baking trays. Stir together the flour, oats, bicarb soda and salt; set aside.
    2. In a medium bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar until smooth. Stir in the peanut butter and buttermilk. Gradually mix in the dry ingredients then fold in chocolate chips. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place them 5cm apart onto the prepared baking trays. Use a fork dipped in flour to flatten the balls slightly.

    I had a craving for homemade, big soft cookies but had no eggs at hand - this recipe fit the bill! They came out nice and soft, but with a slightly crisp bottom. Really liked them and was super easy to make. And just because I felt like having some spicy flavor, I also added some ground ginger(just a personal preference).  -  10 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I can't beleive how quick and easy these were! I did have to bake for about 12-13 min, but I think that is because I made the cookies a little on the large side, as I ended up with 22 instead of the 30 the recipe said. I did end up using about 3/4 c. choc. chips since my boyfriend is a choc-o-holic. These are super tasty. A nice moist chewey cookie!! I will definately make again!  -  27 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I love these. I am always able to make my own little changes (whole wheat flour, milk or water in place of the buttermilk, etc.) to fit what I have on hand. This is a great recipe!  -  31 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
