I am ALL about food that is better for you but tastes oh so decadent! I love peanut butter and cookies, so this combination is to die for. So here is my simple recipe for tasty (and better for you) peanut butter oatmeal cookies! They are almost cake-like which equals a small slice of heaven to satisfy your sweet tooth after dinner.
1 and 1/4 cup rolled oats
Less that 1/4 cup of white sugar
1/4 cup of peanut butter
2 tablespoons of all natural apple sauce
5 teaspoons of whole wheat flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
a few chocolate chips
1. For this recipes, combine all the ingredients (except the chocolate chips) and mix them until they form a stiff dough.
2. Then measure a tablespoon scoop of the dough and place on a cookie sheet. Put one chocolate chips on each piece of dough.
3. Place in preheated 350 degree oven for 10 – 12 minutes. Enjoy!
Averaging about 80 calories a cookie – that’s a pretty sweet cookie.
