Peanut butter oatmeal cookies made without refined sugar and unhealthy oil.
Since my children attend school I’m forgetting about peanut butter because there is school peanut free policy. That’s why I make less peanut butter treats. We like peanut butter and my older son loves it too. He likes the most with crepes and banana. Sometimes I want to make something that my children easily can take to school.
However, recently I thought that peanut butter oatmeal cookies must be so good. I decided to make them. It was quick decision, trial-and-error .. but in the end they came out so delicious. Full of peanut butter flavor, apple and cinnamon. I don’t really make a lot of peanut butter cookies or other treats. I thought it will be nice to do something different than….. chocolate. I can’t live without chocolate that’s why I’ve got plenty chocolaty recipes.
Browsing Pinterest I found many recipes for energy bites. However, I noticed they are not baked. I prefer baked oats. That’s why I created energy cookies instead of no bake energy bites. I’ve got many oats recipes, for example oat Flour Almond Plum Cookies that I just really like. They are so tasty with plum and almond flavor.
However, my peanut butter oatmeal cookies have a strong peanut butter flavor and you can taste it in every bite. Totally delicious.
