We all love cookies.
So, a cookie that’s made just a little bit healthier is ideal for those of us who want more than just one.
I have not been baking as much as I would like because we are trying to cut back on the sugary treats. This cookie recipe made things easier for our sweet cravings. It calls for a hefty serving of peanut butter. (Can you say protein?) And, instead of all-purpose flour, it solely uses old-fashioned rolled oats. Of course there is sugar; it’s a cookie recipe after all. But, because of the fat from the peanut butter, this recipe only uses a small amount of butter. I did include chocolate chips, but you could use raisins or any other kind of dried fruit instead. And the additional peanuts are completely optional. Cinnamon would be a lovely addition to these cookies as well.
I think you will enjoy these cookies as much as we did. They satisfy when the cookie craving hits, but without all the guilt. They make a great snack, and a couple of these cookies would satisfy as a breakfast. And might I add, they are perfect microwaved slightly and served with a glass of vanilla almond milk.
