Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

whipped ganache filling

  • 5 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • chocolate sprinkles for rolling

Instructions 

  • Place chocolate in a bowl. Heat heavy cream in a saucepan over low heat until warm (just until bubbles appear on the edges) and then pour over chocolate. Stir constantly until chocolate is totally melted, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, stir together flour, oats, cinnamon, salt and baking powder.
  • In a large bowl, combine melted butter and peanut butter with sugars and whisk until smooth. Add egg and vanilla, mixing well until combined. Stir in dry ingredients, mixing until dough comes together. You can even bring the dough together with your hands if needed. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Measure out a tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball, making sure they are all roughly the same size. Place on a nonstick baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 7-8 minutes, until just baked through and lightly golden on the edges. Remove from baking sheet and let cool completely.
  • Add ganache to the bowl of an electric mixture and beat until fluffy, about 1-2 minutes. Using a small spoon or spatula, spread ganache on the flat side of one cookie and cover it with another, repeating with the rest. Roll the edges in sprinkles!
