Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

healthy eatingThese cookies are sinfully delicious, yet healthy, and ready in 25 minutes! I’ve adapted this recipe from my favourite prenatal cookbook “Healthy Eating During Pregnancy“, using all-natural peanut butter and egg whites, and substituting in whole wheat flour. You don’t have to be pregnant to enjoy these treats!  Makes 40 cookies.


  • 1/2 cup non-hydrogenated margarine
  • 1/2 cup all-natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, use a silicone spatula or electric mixer to combine all ingredients (adding rolled oats last).
  3. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.  Press down each ball slightly to flatten.
  4. Bake in oven for 7 to 8 minutes, or until edges are golden. Rotate cookie sheets half way through cooking time.
  5. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute, then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
