Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Dream Cups






Peanut Butter Oatmeal Dream Cups
Everything tastes better baked in a mini muffin pan!  

 
 

I was inspired by this recipe that I found on PINTEREST and just HAD to try it! My goodness these are AMAZING! And not only that, you can make this recipe in 2 bowls and you don't even have to bust out a mixer or run out to the store (if you already have the basics for baking in your pantry)!

The center of these sweet treats is where all of the magic happens! The peanut butter center is so creamy and delicious! I never knew that Oatmeal and Peanut Butter were such a perfect match! But they are! You will LOVE these!

 Ingredients:                                                                               
  • 1 cup melted butter 
  • 1 cup brown sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 2¼ cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1½ cups flour 
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  •  1 can sweetened condensed milk 
  • 2 cups of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips 

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Lightly spray 2 mini muffin pans with PAM. 
  • In a medium mixing bowl, stir together melted butter, sugar, soda, oatmeal, flour & salt until it’s crumbly. Add one cup of the chocolate chips.
  • Press the crust into prepared mini muffin pan and fill up about 1/2 way. 
  • Set aside the rest of the crust for later. 
  • Bake crust for 2 minutes.  
  • While crust is cooking, in a small bowl, stir together the peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk. 
  • Once crust has baked, put one full teaspoon of the peanut butter filling over each of the mini muffin cups.
  • Evenly sprinkle the reserved crumbs on top of the peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk mixture. Bake for 8 minutes. 
  • Once done baking press the remaining chocolate chips on top of the cups so the chocolate melts.
  • Allow to cool and then gently twist the cups out of the pan.
  • Yeilds 36-48 Mini Cookie Cups (depending on how full you fill your pans)!
