Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Every once in a while I get a craving for something sweet. (Actually more frequently then I am willing to admit). I like to make these cookies to have on hand for these moments. They are relatively healthy'ish, and very easy to make.  My hubby, who also has a sweet tooth, will devour a batch of these in a couple of days so I like to "hide" a few in the freezer to save for later. (wink, wink)

Here's what you will need:
  • 1/2 cup of peanut or almond butter (they both taste great)
  • 3 tbs of honey
  • 1 tbs of coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups of quick oats
  • 1/2 cup of shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Mix the PB, honey and oil together until smooth, then beat in the egg. Add the oats, coconut, baking powder, salt and cinnamon, then add the chocolate chips. 

On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper drop spoonfuls of the batter leaving about 1.5 inches between each cookie. Flatten the tops a bit with a fork. Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 8-9 minutes.  

This makes about 18 or so cookies. Let cool, and enjoy! 


How do you curb your sweet tooth?
