I felt like baking cookies today… and I had peanut butter on my mind. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Most of you may be familiar with the 2 ingredient cookies (banana & oats) well these are similar but so much better! At only 1 point each they definitely are a guilt free treat, and can also work for a quick grab and go breakfast when there is no time in the morning to make anything. Just a few ingredients and a little of your time and you will have these whipped up in no time.

      Hi, my guess would be 2sp each.. I will try and change it soon, there are still a few recipes lingering that I have not gotten to yet

  1. Ok..” I’m just a tad bit confused… Also new to WW.. lol
    But in your recipe you said 1 point per cookie..
    But when someone asked what points would be without Reece’s Pieces, you said 2.. ??

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Jody, I have few older recipes I have not updated yet to smart points, I keep meaning to go back to them but the time gets the better of me.. these are 1 point plus each (old WW program) so for smart points I think they will be 2 each

  2. I think I’ve figured it out… lol
    Points plus points
    Smart Points ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Could you give me the nutritional information. I am using my fitness pal and would like to know the nutritional information.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Sorry this is an older recipe, before I started working out the nutritional numbers so I don’t currently have them

    • Jessica Lennox Reply

      I just did the math on everything

      each cookie comes to 44.9 calories, 3.4 carbs (1.9 sugar), 1.2 protein, 1.7 fat

      total for the bach is: 1259 calories, 96 carbs (54g sugar), 35.6g protein, 48g fat

      Hope this helps. Looking to add a scoop of snicker doodle protein powder. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Thanks Jessica ๐Ÿ™‚ Some of these older recipes I forget about ๐Ÿ™

        • Jessica lennox Reply

          Omg no problem ๐Ÿ™‚ thank you for sharing! We are making these this week, they look delicious!

  4. I put the ingredients into the WW recipe builder and they are 1 SP each, instead of the candies pieces I added sugar free chocolate chips and used old fashion oats, not quick.

      • I just put this into the recipe builder as is except for amount of 24 cookies. Only 1 freestyle point. Yay

    • Drizzle Reply

      Sure, you can try.. not sure they will be exactly the same but it is worth a shot ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Can I substitute the peanut butter for pb2? Also couldn’t find mini Reese’s so I bought regular size peanut butter chips and bought mini m&M’s, which would be better to fit into point wise? Last question lol but if I use pb2 does that lessen the points to 1sp?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Kristin, I have never used PB2, I know a lot do though and I think it works fine as a substitute, I can’t confirm the points as again I don’t use it, maybe try building the recipe on the WW recipe builder? I would think the chips and M&M are similar is points, maybe chop up the reg size chips and use those?

  10. What do you mean by t? Tablespoon or teaspoon?
    Also, do you know the points on the new Freestyle program?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Ashley, these would be the same on freestyle, we still use smart points for freestyle, and only recipes with the new zero point foods changed in points, and t is tsp T is tbsp

  11. I joined weight watchers but I donโ€™t understand what you mean when you say recipe builder! Could someone help me and explain?

    • Drizzle Reply

      HI Cassie, when you go into your WW app, press the + then “my foods” then “recipes” then “create” this will now allow you to build a recipe, you will enter how many servings it makes and all your ingredients, then it will figure out the points per serving for you and you can save it

    I made these tonight, and my hubby and I both are that they are terrible. I used natural peanut butter, and steel cut oats. The we’re like eating drywall. Did I do something wrong?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Angela, these cookies are definitely not for everyone, with only a few ingredients there really is nothing you could do wrong so to speak, they just might not be what you were expecting .. The texture is not really cookie like but they are a good alternative snack for those that enjoy them, sorry you did not

  15. HI! I love your recipes:) I just came across this one and will be making it as soon as I have some ripe bananas! I was wondering if these would freeze well?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Gail, yes they should freeze fine, happy baking ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Just wondering if you have the freestlye points for this one? Thanks

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi they will be the same as old smart points, nothing in them is a zero food so there was no changes ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. I added 1 1/2 teaspoons of Stevia because they werenโ€™t sweet enough for me. Does that affect the point value?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Dolores, no I don’t think that will change the point value overall
