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.

Peanut butter oatmeal cookies
Recipe type: Baking
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 24
2SP blue & green, 2 cookies for 3SP on purple
  • 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
  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.
Smart Points- blue & green- 2 using WW recipe builder

      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

    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 🙂

    Can old-fashioned oats be used? Or are quick oats better? Thank you!

      Either is fine, they will both work just as well 🙂

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

      Hi Michelle, yes egg whites should work just as well

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

    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?

      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. 🙂

      Definitely add chocolate chips! It’s the best and I do 9 tsps which really go a long way.

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

    These are delicious and SO easy. I didn’t quite have 1/3 cup applesauce so I added a mashed peach and worked great .
    Thanks for sharing.
