Coooookies. Who doesn’t love a good cookie?! Especially one with oats, peanut butter, AND chocolate… ooh la la. But that’s not even the best part… these are HEALTHY (!!) I have an insaneeee sweet tooth, so I’m always looking for something to munch on without eating too much sugar & these are my new favvv. This recipe is flourless & uses no butter, a total health plus! These lil’ treats take about 15-20 min. to make & are so easy. Let’s get baking!
What you’ll need:
⅔ cup Quick Oats
1 cup Peanut Butter (organic/all natural)
½ cup Dark Chocolate Chips (estimate, add as desired)
½ cup Brown Sugar
1 ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Baking Soda
**I like to use organic peanut butter that has anywhere between 1-3 grams of sugar per serving & dark chocolate chips. These little changes can help save a lot of calories, while still getting the same sweet taste as any cookie!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, eggs, brown sugar, & vanilla. Stir until smooth. Then, mix in oats & baking soda. Stir until uniform throughout, then gently mix in chocolate chips.
Spread mixture along a lined baking pan, forming a rectangle.
Bake for ~10 min. *Tip: Test if done by inserting a toothpick through the center- no residue, it has baked completely.
Cool as needed.
Cut into squares, or any other shape you like.
**I prefer this method because I find it easier to cut into shapes after baking, rather than trying to form shapes with the sticky dough.
And Voila! Share these treats with the fam or enjoy them all to yourself… I don’t blame ya.
