Quick & Easy Peanut Oat Cookies

After making these peanut oat cookies a good ten times, (not complaining!) I’m finally ready to share this recipe with you.

If you’re looking for a super easy, low-effort sweet afternoon treat, these cookies are perfect for you! ⁠

These cookies are:⁠

  • super simple to make⁠
  • use just one bowl⁠
  • the perfect afternoon snack — not too sweet and nicely filling to satisfy those pre-dinner hunger pangs ⁠
  • super customizable — you can take out or substitute lots of these ingredients and the cookies still work out! (Example: I love subbing half the peanut butter for tahini) ⁠
  • ⁠won’t give you a sugar rush!

This is another super quick little recipe so time to dive right in!

Peanut Oat Cookies

⁠Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups (175 grams) rolled oats
  • ⅔ cup (50 g) shredded coconut⁠
  • ½ cup + 2 Tablespoons (150 g) peanut butter⁠
  • ¼ cup (50 g) flour (I like sorghum or brown rice)⁠
  • 2 Tablespoons (25 g) coconut sugar⁠
  • ¼ cup (75 g) liquid sweetener⁠
  • 6 Tablespoons (80 g) melted coconut oil ⁠
  • ½ t cinnamon⁠
  • 1 t vanilla extract⁠
  • 2 Tbsp soy milk (optional, if the mixture seems too dry)⁠

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375º F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.⁠
  2. Start by adding all the dry ingredients to a large bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Next, add the wet ingredients to the same bowl and mix well until everything comes together. ⁠
  4. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of cookie dough onto the baking sheet and flatten the blobs slightly with your hand. You should get about 15 cookies.⁠
  5. Place the tray in the oven and bake for 14 minutes. Be sure to check on the cookies starting at the 10-minute marker so they don’t burn. ⁠
  6. Remove the tray from the oven once the cookies are nice and golden, and let them cool down for at least 10 minutes before enjoying. ⁠

Enjoy these peanut oat cookies as an afternoon treat with a steaming mug of warming masala chai! They also pack really well as part of a school or work lunch (just be sure not to smush them!).
