Irresistibly Healthy Oatmeal Cookies





We had such a great time with family over the holidays.  One of my favorite things about spending time with my brother and sister and their families is that I get to eat my sister's cooking.  We always know we are in for a treat when we see her in the kitchen!  One of my favorite things she baked for us were these irresistible oatmeal cookies.   Everyone else must have thought they were delicious too, as it seemed she was constantly making another batch.  The week after all the family had left, I was having a craving for these cookies.  My sister, understanding my need, quickly sent me the recipe.  As soon as I got the recipe, I began whipping up these little beauties. 


Just a quick warning.  These are very addictive.  Since they have no flour, lots of peanut butter and oats, they are a somewhat healthy cookie.  If you would rather not be eating 5-6 of them a day, you may want to freeze half of the batch.  I froze half of the second batch I made, trying to help myself be disciplined.   It didn't help too much... I would just pull them right out of the freezer and eat them frozen.  I have to say, they were very good that way too!   :0)

Irresistibly Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
12 oz (1 1/2 lb) peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 1/2 cups oatmeal
6 oz chocolate chips
1/2 cup M&Ms


Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix the sugars, peanut butter, butter and eggs together.  Blend well.  Add in vanilla, baking soda, oatmeal.  After it is well mixed, pour in the chocolate chips and M&M's.  Gently mix until blended.  Drop by tablespoon full on a non greased cookie sheets.  Flatten with a fork.  Bake for 12-15 minutes.  Do not over cook as they will become very hard. 

Makes 25 to 30 cookies


Bon Apetite!

  1. Found you from a blog hop! Your newest follower--thanks for sharing the recipe! "Healthy" and " cookies" just don't go together as often as they should. :)

  3. I make these, too! They are Gluten-Free and I also use Splenda brown sugar and the granular white sugar and they are lower in calories. Yum!

  4. How can they be gluten-free if they have oatmeal in them? They do sound yummy, though.

    1. Using splenda in cookies works well or you could use unrefined/natural sugar. I'm a fan of using half splenda, half Florida Crystals

  7. I made these cookies last weekend and they were the best cookies I've ever made. I was planning to freeze them but they were so great they never made it there! I used about half the sugar and I added a banana, and they were still delicious. I'm making them again today (I'm adding some coconut as an experiment), and hopefully there will be leftovers this time! thanks for sharing!

  8. That's great to know that they were still good with half the sugar. Adding coconut sounds great too! You'll have to let me know if you end up liking that addition. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Just because something is flourless, doesn't make it healthy. These cookies have 20-25 grams of sugar a piece. That's a lot. (You could have 4 double stuffed oreos for about the same amount. The oreos would have almost as much fiber, too.) And, yeah, I know I could use Splenda, but if you take substitutions into account, any recipe could be called "irresistibly healthy".

    I also tried them with brown rice syrup and make them into bars. Very tasty!

  11. Healthy?? I think not...

  12. Healthy? Perhaps. These cookies look like they have less sugar than a cup of yogurt and almost as much protein. I'll be trying them soon!

  15. Gonna make these. I learned a trick to keep oatmeal cookies from turning out dry or hard. You spoon scoop the dry oatmeal into your measuring cup instead of scooping it up. It prevents over-packing of extra oatmeal. And your right baking too long or leaving them too long on a baking sheet once of the oven makes them dry and hard.
