  • Almond butter – Some individuals prefer almond flour or almond butter over peanut butter. Well guess what, they now make an almond butter powder that you can use in place of the peanut butter if you prefer. Try these oatmeal cookies with this almond butter powder for a variation.

Recipe directions

See full recipe instructions in the recipe card below.

In a large bowl combine the wet ingredients. Add in the dry ingredients and mix to form the cookie dough.

To hold the cookies together I use coconut oil and let the dough set for about 30 minutes to moisten the oats. This process also allows the coconut oil to harden making the dough easier to roll into balls.

Once the dough has hardened roll it into 2-inch balls then smash them down to flatten keeping each peanut butter oatmeal cookie about 1 inch apart.

Bake the cookies in the oven on the center rack for 8-10 minutes. Let the cookies cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Storing and Freezing Cookies

Make these cookies and let them cool completely and store them in an airtight container on the counter in a cool dry place for up to 3 days. Or in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up 5-7 days.

These healthy oat cookies freeze well too. Let the cookies cool then store them in a freezer bag and seal it completely with all the air removed. Store in the freezer for 2 months.
