PB Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

I've been craving peanut butter lately and these cookies sounded like they would really hit the spot. We all really liked the flavor. They weren't too sweet so they made for a tasty breakfast. 

For me, they would be a good breakfast or even a snack. It's easy to grab a couple and head on your way. My children, however, needed a large handful of cookies to satisfy them in the morning so if you typically eat a bigger breakfast, these may not be filling enough for you. 

My cookies stayed soft and chewy. I liked the texture but they did fall apart very easily. We stored them in a container in the fridge. Each time you grabbed a cookie, a few pieces would fall off the side of the cookie. Not a big deal for me...just a chance to eat a few more bites of the leftover crumbs here and there :)

Substitutions/Additions made by Cooking After Class for PB Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies:

  • did not make homemade peanut butter...just used what was in the pantry
  • eliminated the cinnamon...wanted to taste more of the PB and didn't want the cinnamon to overpower the cookies
  • used regular unsweetened almond milk, I don't buy vanilla flavored

Tips from Cooking After Class for making PB Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies:

  • if you don't have oat flour, just grind up oats in a food processor until they are the consistency of flour
