I am calling these cookies “breakfast cookies” because I think they are healthier than your average cookie, enough to have for breakfast once in a while.
I adapted these from a lunch box cookie recipe in Kid Favorites Made Healthy.
Here is what you need:
1/2 cup butter (I like Smart Balance)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed down brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 large or extra large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour (if you want to make it even healthier, I bet you could substitute
whole wheat pastry flour)
1 cup quick rolled oats
Cream butter and peanut butter with mixer, then add sugars and baking soda. Add egg and vanilla. Stir in flour and oats.
Spoon a rounded teaspoonful about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. I gave mine a quick spray with vegetable oil even though the original recipe says ungreased. Bake for about 8 minutes in a preheated 375 degree oven.
Makes about 2 1/2 to 3 dozen.
Hope you enjoy!
