Peanut Butter Cinnamon Cookies I’m a sucker for soft and chewy sweets!  I suppose that is why I seriously can’t get enough of these Peanut Butter + Cinnamon Cookies.

Yesterday afternoon I had the house all to my lonesome.  My kids have been complaining that I haven’t been doing much baking since my surgery so I figured I’d rectify that situation and set out to enjoy the afternoon in my kitchen.

I popped the ingredients for a loaf of gluten-free bread in the machine, whipped up a Banana Ginger Loaf for lunches this week and patiently hovered around the oven while the cookies were baking.  I must admit though that baking cookies is more of a chore for me than anything else.  I suspect that has something to do with the fact that I’m a fairly impatient gal.  But every now and again, I venture into the cookie zone.  The kids love their pb and cinnamon cookies!  Oh, the things I’d do for my little ones.

So, before I hand over the recipe for these goodies, you may want to know that I try to replace many of my ingredients with essential oils.  I love, love, love the intensity that quality oils bring to my baked goods.
