Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches

These cookies are amazing! I found this recipe from one of my all time favorite recipe website. Annie's Eats! I made these a while back but really wanted to share them with you! I have not made them since because they are so good and I can’t just eat one at a time.
