I know that the words “healthy” and “cookies” don’t often end up in the same sentence but if you have the itch do see some fresh-baked cookies come out of the oven without the standard amount of guilt attached, check out this recipe for a treat that doesn’t equal a week’s worth of classes per cookie!

Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies



  • 3/4 c whole wheat flour (may need to adjust depending on the moisture of the batter)
  • 3/4 c oats
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • optional: 1 tsp cinnamon


  • 1 c smooth natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 c honey (easier with liquid honey)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • optional: 1/3-1/2 c chocolate or carob chips


  1. Combine dry ingredients
  2. Combine moist ingredients
  3. Mix dry and moist ingredients together.
  4. Cool in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  5. Drop teaspoons of batter on a parchment-lined cookie sheet or baking sheet for cookies.
  6. Flatten with a fork if you like.
  7. Bake at 375 for 8-12 minutes – edges will be slightly browned – be careful not to burn as honey browns fast.
