When you want a treat but you don’t want to waste calories, you will definitely want to make these delicious Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies!
My New Year’s resolution was to make healthier life choices, but in small, manageable places. The first new choice I made was to change my breakfast from sugar cereal topped with berries to a protein rich oatmeal topped with berries.
If you’ve never tried homemade oatmeal, consider my recipe for Overnight Oatmeal in a Jar. It’s simple and so delicious!
What I love most about these Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies is that I don’t have to feel guilty when I want to enjoy one. I thought hard about the recipe for these cookies and made sure to choose ingredients that would pack a punch!
Depending on what kind of peanut butter and oats you use, each cookie could potentially have 10g of protein in each one!
That’s a snack I can feel good about giving my kids and treating myself to!
If you’re not into raisins and chocolate chips, consider substituting the following:
- Chia seeds
- Sunflower seeds
- Poppy seeds
- Pumpkin seeds
- Dried cranberries
You could also substitute agave or maple syrup for the honey. Super easy substitution to make!
I really hope you enjoy these fantastically delicious and guilt-free peanut butter oatmeal cookies!
