Healthy Eggless Sugarfree Oatmeal Almond Peanut Butter Cookies

I had a bunch of oatmeal that needed to be used and peanut butter around. I had once made these oatmeal cookies with honey and olive oil, but could not find the recipe. I found this recipe, did a bunch of modifications and came up with this healthy oatmeal cookie that is sugarfree, eggfree and butterless. I also added almonds to it, but you can add raisins, peanuts, walnut, chocolate chips… whatever tickles your fancy.

Note: According to my dietician friend, honey is not good for very young children, so this would not be for them.

Warning: its quite the hearty cookie.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (or all-purpose flour)
  • 3/4 teaspoon + a pinch baking soda
  • 1/3 cup creamy natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped almonds (peanuts/raisins/chocolate chips)
  • 1/2 cup

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Scatter oats on a large sheet pan and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until light golden brown; remove from sheet pan. Grease sheet.
  3. In a medium sized mixing bowl, sift together flour and baking soda.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, olive oil and honey, until creamy. Add vanilla and mix until well combined.
  5. Beat in flour mixture until combined. Beat in toasted oats, peanuts until combined.
  6. Shape the dough into balls, using about 1/4 cup of batter per ball; place on sheet pan and flatten slightly.
  7. Bake at 190 degrees C, for 10-12 minutes, or until light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes on pan before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
