Peanut butter oatmeal cookies

March 8, 2020

I have nicknamed these new cookies, peanut butter oatmeal “muffin top” cookies because they reminded me of the top part of a freshly baked muffin, and we all know that’s the best part! Just a few simple ingredients needed to bake this tasty treat up, the recipe makes 24 large soft cookies, 2SP each on all 3 MyWW programs, on the purple plan you can have 2 cookies for just 3SP.

Serves: 24
 
2SP blue & green, 2 cookies for 3SP on purple
Ingredients
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup peanut butter *I use Kraft light PB, ½ cup is 20SP
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1⅓ cup oats, I used Robin hood large flake quick oats
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, line a baking sheet with some parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the apple sauce and brown sugar, stir in the peanut butter till well blended. Then add in the eggs and vanilla and mix well.
  3. Stir in flour, baking soda and oats.
  4. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto cookie sheet, lightly flatten batter with back of spoon.
  5. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes and then let cool for a few minutes.
  6. Makes 24 cookies, they are best stored in the fridge after day one and the cookies can be frozen.
  7. *Note- you can substitute the peanut butter for powdered PB (in wet form) to lower points, I personally did not try it as I've always preferred real PB but it should work out fine.

      Kraft light PB is the same points as most regular PB’s, but yes you can sub powdered PB in wet form, I am not sure the point outcome though you’d need to build in your WW recipe builder

      Sorry I only know the points based on how I made the recipe, you’d need to build the recipe in your WW app

    Can I make my own apple sauce from apples? I can’t leave home now because of the lockdown.

      Yes I am sure you can, maybe check Pinterest for an applesauce recipe 🙂 I have a peach apple jam recipe that could be used and replaced with just apples
