Outrageous Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies – a healthier peanut butter cookie for only 160 calories a cookie.
I haven’t made cookies in a long time, but my husband was in the mood for some cookies because he’s been sick for the past couple weeks. So I was wondering what cookies to make and came a cross this recipe on allrecipes.com which I have modified a bit, by reducing the sugar. What caught my eye is the fact that this is a healthier version of peanut butter cookies. And not only peanut butter cookies, but they also have chocolate chips in them, and, are you ready for this, rolled oats!
Yes! Rolled oats in peanut butter cookies. I made 24 cookies from this recipe which works out to only 160 calories per cookie.
Yes, they’re outrageous!
Yes, they’re healthy!
Why? Because they’re not loaded with a couple cups of sugar like most cookie recipes, there’s only 1/3 cup of brown sugar and 1/3 cup of white sugar and they are healthy because of the rolled oats! You know oats are good for you!
But most importantly these cookies are so tasty, so delicious, you will love them.
