Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
Any Peanut Butter fans out here? Please know that I'm out here raising my hand as well. So, last Sunday, I went shopping with my family. After picking up a list of things, while heading back to the counter for checkout, my husband saw some peanut butter and we stopped. He wanted to take it! I was like, "God! you're just perfect. That's exactly what I was looking for. May you be blessed by The Peanut Butter Goddess!" The moment I put peanut butter into my cart, I was sure that I am gonna go home, wear my apron and make SO MANY things out of this. But, the first thing that I was gonna bake was a chewy, softy and crisp peanut butter cookies.
Let me introduce you to my Perfect Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies
I LOVE Peanuts and of course Peanut Butter. I feel its an ingredient that can give you that extra nutty-ness. Moreover, when you are making cookies out of it (especially the way I make it), you ought to be extra happy since I am gonna top it off with extra peanuts.
Peanuts and Oatmeal are a healthy choice. If you are using gluten-free oats then you can easily call these gluten-free Peanut butter oatmeal cookies. I personally recommend that you chill your dough for some time because it makes your cookie extra thick.
You are free to double or triple the recipe as per your needs. If you like you can add some chocolate chips or raisins into the mix. It will bring in a new twist of flavor in your recipe.
Troubleshooting Tips for baking these Easy Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies
- Use a pinch of nutmeg powder and cinnamon powder to add in a little spice in your cookies.
- Use melted butter (at room temperature) or coconut oil for this recipe.
- I personally like a combination of brown sugar and a little bit of white sugar for my recipe. I think it gives a little caramel flavor to my cookies.
- To be on the healthy side, I recommend not using quick oats. Go for old-fashioned oats.
- To make your cookies extra healthy you can use almond flour for this recipe.
- You can replace the flour and use 2/3 cup or 10 tablespoon Old fashioned rolled Oatmeal to make flourless Peanut Butter Oatmeal cookies.
