All-Time Favorite Cookies
What better combination than oatmeal, peanut butter and chocolate? And, they’re super easy to make.
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 cup 1% or nonfat milk
1 Tbsp cocoa
1 Tbsp margarine
¼ tsp vanilla
1/8 cup peanut butter
¾ cup oatmeal
Combine the first 4 ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla, peanut butter and oatmeal. Drop by teaspoons onto waxed paper. Makes about 1 dozen.
Unnecessary Justification: Yes, the dietitian is eating a cookie. It’s not nice to stare and point fingers. This recipe has fiber from the oatmeal, monounsaturated fats from the peanut butter, antioxidants from the cocoa, low fat milk and you could use a healthier margarine like Smart Balance and even use Splenda to replace the sugar, if you wish. I haven’t tried the Splenda substitution, so let us know how it works if you try it. And most important, they taste really good :)
