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.

    Kraft light peanut butter is not available in my stores…can I substitute 1/2 cup of prepared PB powder?

    • Drizzle Reply

      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 just read the last part of the recipe, which I should have done the first time around. Duh! Thanks!

    How many SPs on blue if I substituted powdered Peanut Butter?
    Thanks!

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

      Yes I am sure you can, maybe check Pinterest for an applesauce recipe ๐Ÿ™‚ I have a peach apple jam recipe that could be used and replaced with just apples

  4. You may not know but these looked so amazing I feel compelled to ask – am I able to sub in my Wowbutter for the peanut butter? It is a soy butter substitute for those with peanut allergies. My question is on the baking side – I can work out the points myself using the recipe builder. Thanks so much!

      Hi Sar, yes I think Wow butter will work well, I am familiar with it my daughter use to go to a sleepover summer camp and they served it there, similar consistency so should be ok ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Drizzle Reply

      Either is fine, they will both work just as well ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I know with certain recipes, the ingredients and measurements need to be specific. Can I use egg whites instead of whole eggs?

  6. Can I sub out self rising flour for the flour part? If so do I still use the baking soda? Not a baker here have no idea lol.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Heidi, yes you can use self rising, I’d still add a pinch of baking powder, maybe just 1/2 tsp

  7. Easy to make so thank you for recipe. I just found them a bit bland though. Anyone with a suggestion to
    perk them up without adding a lot of calories/points?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Gayle, sorry you found them bland.. you could try a little sweetener if you use it, that way you won’t be adding any points

      • Thank you! I found them better after chilling in fridge as well. Definitely good with my tea break. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Definitely add chocolate chips! Itโ€™s the best and I do 9 tsps which really go a long way.

  8. This is the 5th recipe of yours that I have tried – another solid winner. I love, love them all!

    I used PBFit and came out fantastic.

    Keep the awesomeness coming!

      Thanks Melissa, so glad you are enjoying them all ๐Ÿ™‚ glad to hear the PBfit worked well, thanks for sharing

  9. Thank you for posting recipes that we can usually make with ingredients we already have. I really appreciate you! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks so much Beth, I appreciate you for reaching out, truly humbled ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you continue to enjoy the recipes

  10. Iโ€™ve been making these at least once a week during quarantine and we all love them. Weโ€™ve gotten creative with what we put in them each time since supplies are scarce but theyโ€™re always delicious. Different extracts, sweeteners, powered peanut peanut butter, choc chips, etc. and theyโ€™re always good!

      Hi Anna, so glad you are all enjoying the cookies, thanks for sharing your little tips ๐Ÿ™‚ love it!

  11. These are delicious and SO easy. I didnโ€™t quite have 1/3 cup applesauce so I added a mashed peach and worked great .
    Thanks for sharing.
