These cookies are super simple and delicious. They are essentially the same as the Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies except half of the sugar is replaced with rolled oats, yet somehow they don’t taste less sweet. Each large cookie is equivalent to eating 1 Tbsp peanut butter, 1/2 Tbsp oats, 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar – not too bad. If Santa sticks to these, he may even shed a few pounds this season!
1 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar (medium packed)
1 egg or 1/4 cup egg substitute
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until incorporated. Spoon 1-1/2″ balls onto an ungreased baking sheet and flatten in two directions with the back of a fork until about 1/4″ thin (too thin and they will break once baked). Bake until cookies are nearly set and bottoms begin to brown, about 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the cookies sit on the rack for another 3-5 minutes, then remove and let cool completely. Makes 16 large cookies.
