Mmmmm... Super healthy peanut butter and oat cookies.

Who doesn't like peanut butter? (other than those that end up not being able to breath from an allergic reaction)... These little guys only have three ingredients and not one of them is wheat, sugar or butter. They'll fool you with how they taste though- divine! I couldn't stop eating them when I first started making them. I ended up making a batch every night for a week.

This recipe is super easy, uses about two dishes and makes 8-10 cookies.
Time: 10 minutes prep, 10-15 minutes to cook.

  • Half a cup of natural peanut butter,
  • Half a cup of corn syrup or rice syrup,
  • One cup of oats.
In a saucepan on medium heat, melt the peanut butter and syrup into each other for about three minutes.
Take off the heat and add in the one cup of oats, mixing well.
Roll into ten small balls, bearing in mind that they don't rise. Put them on a non-stick oven tray and press them flat in the middle. Put them into a pre-heated oven at 180*c for ten to fifteen minutes until they are golden.
Perfect for rainy spring days like this.


  1. These are far too easy to make. It's probably a good thing I can't eat them personally.
    I WILL make a batch with almond butter for the children though.
    Damn, I wish nuts didn't dislike me SO much. Sigh!
    Thanks for the post. :)

  3. I've made a batch of these with 'Nut Free Butter' I found in Woolies (I probably should try making my own Sunflower Seed Butter, as I can already tell these will become a favourite).
    They are great! Far too easy to make, bake AND consume.
    They sort of remind me of a healthy Anzac biscuit. I will add some desiccated coconut (as well as the currants) next time.
    Mmm, thanks again Sally. :)

  4. That's so great! I'm glad you like them and are able to eat them. Too Good! :) xx
