Peanut Butter Oat Bran Cookies

There is a reason I don’t make cookies more often. I eat them all. I don’t even get to the point of baked cookies, I’ll eat bites of dough before they even make it into the oven! Cookies are just so…Easy. Popable. Bite-sized.

The bambino gets a kick out of having treats in the cookie jar, so every once in awhile I make the effort, even though I know any hopes of a diet are out the window.

At least these cookies have oat bran in them. The added fiber makes them quasi-healthy, right?

Just like having them with milk makes them a balanced snack. That’s what I’m telling myself anyway.

  1. I ground up rolled oats to use as flour and ground up dried coconut. I used nut butter and maple syrup (1/2 cup maple syrup and only 1/3 cup of sugar and no brown sugar). I divided the mixture into different batches and one batch baked as is. Next batch I added 72% dark chocolate that I put in my food processor to grind small. Next batch I added cinnamon and the chocolate chips and ginger. All the batches came out AWESOME.
