These healthy peanut butter oatmeal cookies are so easy to make you should be careful not to bake them every day!
You probably have all the ingredients in your pantry. And each single ingredient is healthy: you’ve got the fats and protein from the peanut butter, the slow whole carbs from oatmeal and anti-oxidants from honey to add some sweetness.
They are not only easy to make they also look like those traditional home-made cookies. Basically because basically they are, but ok well.
When making these I had in the back of my mind those times when I was a kid and would eat a cookie with some milk on a sunny afternoon. Just enjoying the moment without a single worry besides where which friends we were going to play soccer at later on.
At that time, somewhere in the early ’90s (yes, I am getting old) healthy cookies were two words that nobody had ever put together. But today we know a lot more about food and what it does to our body so I decided to make a healthy take on those good ole cookies.
Check out the recipe below.
