Healthier Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Hey guys! I hope you all are having a great day so far. With all of the snowy days we have had this winter, I have had a lot of time to experiment with baking. If you are looking for a way to pass the time during a snow day baking cookies is a great way to spend the afternoon. I had some peanut butter and oats sitting around so I figured why not make them into some yummy healthy cookies. This is a pretty simple cookie recipe I added dried cranberries but you could do chocolate chips or raisins if you would like. Give this cookie recipe a try. They are healthy but the real test was that Jon actually ate them and liked them!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1 cup turbinado raw sugar
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries (optional)

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Mix oats, sugar, cranberries together in a bowl.
  3. Combine peanut butter, butter in a bowl and whisk until mixed. Add eggs, vanilla and beat until smooth.
  4. Add the oat mixture to the wet mix and fold in with a rubber spatula. Slowly add in whole wheat flour until it is all combined.
  5. Drop 3 inch size balls of the mixture on to an ungreased cookie sheet and flatten with a fork.
  6. Bake the cookies for approx 14 minutes, until golden. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
  7. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!
