Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

IMG_3881Do you ever have those nights where you just get a craving for something?

Of course, it’s never anything like broccoli or a sweet potato. For me, it’s either something with chocolate or peanut butter.

In this case, it was peanut butter 🙂

These healthy peanut butter oatmeal cookies turned out just great; they were super easy and most of the ingredients you will probably have onhand.

They also have no eggs, no flour and no oil so you can just eat the dough if you like! (Thats what my husband did, haha.) And best of all, each cookie is under 100 calories.

They will really hit the spot and help with those sugar cravings.

Tip: For only a few extra calories, add some dark chocolate chips to the batter. Yum!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup natural peanut butter (I used Skippy Natural)
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer to mix together the peanut butter and brown sugar.
  4. Stir in baking powder and old fashioned oats.
  5. Slowly start to pour in the almond milk.
  6. Stir everything together until fully incorporated.
  7. Using a tablespoon, spoon onto the baking sheet (12 on each sheet) and flatten out a little with a fork.
  8. Bake cookies for 6-8, until lightly golden.
  9. They will feel a little doughy still, but they will be just right after they cool.IMG_3862
