Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies


So today Belinda was talking about making peanut cookies and now I have a craving for peanut butter cookies… so I present a healthy peanut butter cookie recipe. Remember just cause they are healthier (key word healthier) doesn’t mean you can eat them all at once.

Dry Stuff

  • 3/4 c whole wheat flour ( I used a little less, adjust depending on the moisture of the batter)
  • 3/4 c oats
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • optional: 1 tsp cinnamon

Moist Stuff

  • 1 c smooth natural peanut butter ( I used 1 ¼ cups)
  • 1/2 c honey (easier with liquid honey)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • optional: 1/3-1/2 c chocolate or carob chips


  1. Combine dry ingredients
  2. Combine moist ingredients
  3. Mix dry and moist ingredients together.
  4. Cool in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  5. Drop teaspoons of batter on a parchment-lined cookie sheet or baking sheet for cookies.
  6. Flatten with a fork if you like.
  7. Bake at 375 for 8-12 minutes – edges will be slightly browned – be careful not to burn as honey browns fast.
