Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Servings 24 cookies


  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats - gluten free if needed
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, mix peanut butter, honey, eggs, and vanilla together. Really get in there - use those muscles. (But if you're feeling lazy, you can microwave the honey and PB for 15-20 seconds to make it easier to stir.)
  • Add oats and soda to the peanut butter mixture. Combine. Stir in chocolate chips. (If you microwaved, be sure it's cool or they'll melt. Which would be a bummer.)
  • Plop 12 heaping tablespoons on a baking tray. Bake for 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining dough.


Athletes: Fulfill your hankering for sweets without all those pro-inflammatory store bought sweets.
Healthy Eating: No one wants those fat free cookies in their belly... and I mean NO ONE. Eat something with satisfying healthy fats that won't leave you wanting to eat the entire box. (But no one would judge if you did eat the whole recipe.) 
Kids: Need I explain?? The picture below says it all.
Other Thoughts:
  • You could probably also use brown sugar instead of honey. I just love the flavor of pb and honey together. Like can NOT get enough! Honey is sweeter than brown sugar - so you may want an additional 2 Tbsp of brown sugar. Lemme know if you try it because I have not. 
  • These taste great right out of the freezer. Make a batch and throw half in the freezer for a rainy day.
