Soft & Chewy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Like Banana Bread, peanut butter cookies have always been one of my go-to late-night recipes when I am feeling the need to bake. I almost always have all of the ingredients on hand and they are SO easy to make. I was feeling adventurous this go around and decided to take a spin off my classic peanut butter cookie recipe and incorporate oats for a unique flavor with a nice chewy texture.

I've been in such a tailspin trying to master the art of good lighting while making time for my “real” work during the day. I made these cookies in the very late afternoon and only had enough time to get the dough balls photographed in semi-decent lighting before that perfect ray of light was suddenly behind the trees.

As I'm sure many food bloggers know, this is a challenge. Anyone else who spends any sort of time on food photography knows what I am talking about! How do you make your photos look good when more often than not you are cooking after hours when the sun don't shine? Kitchen lighting straight-up sucks and flash photos are a no-no. I've found myself having to get my ingredients prepped the night before so that I can do some of my cooking mid-day, or, taking another go at photos the day after cooking.
