Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies! …With chocolate chips.  These cookies happen to be oil-free, dairy-free and gluten-free – no flour used, just oats! They’re also lightly sweetened with applesauce and honey. Simple and delicious, plus healthy enough for breakfast. 

Ingredients

Scale

Wet Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • scant 1/2 cup applesauce (I used a 4oz container)
  • 1/4 cup AllWhites® Liquid Egg Whites*
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients:

Instructions

  1.  Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl add peanut butter, honey and applesauce; stir until combined. Add in AllWhites® Liquid Egg Whites and vanilla, gently stir until well combined.
  3. Add in rolled oats, quick oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; use large rubber spatula to stir until combined. Dough should be thick and somewhat sticky. If it feels too wet, add in another 1/2 cup quick oats. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Place bowl of dough in fridge to chill dough for 45 minutes before scooping.
  5. Using medium cookie scoop drop cookie dough onto baking sheet, leaving about 2″ apart. Press cookie dough down with palm to flatten slightly – see pictures in post.
  6. Bake cookies for 7-8 minutes for softer cookies, or 9-10 for slightly harder. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 1-2 minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!

Notes

*Can sub 1 large egg in place of 1/4 cup egg whites

Store cookies at room temperature 3-4 days, or in fridge for longer.
