Peanut Butter Cookies


  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Grind oats in a food processor or blender.
  • Add peanut butter and maple syrup to the food processor and blend.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Scoop out batter ( I use about at tablespoon to make little cookies) and form them into cookie shape. Press down on the cookie with a fork.
  • Cook for about 11-12 minutes (until the edges are firm). Don't cook any longer unless you want crispier cookies.

        WHAT. These are so good! Made them at girls night and my friends and I gobbled them up before my kids could get any!

  1. Hi, I am thinking to do this for my 13 months old baby. What else can i use to replace maple syrup?

  2. Is there a substitute for maple syrup? (not honey?). My LO is under 2 and I don’t want her having sugar yet.

  3. Would adding an egg help them stick together better? Also a little more protein would be added…
