Lower Fat Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Chuck_Roast

I worked on The Best Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Cookies to lower the fat and increase the healthfulness, They turned out nice - you could eat them for breakfast and not feel guilty. Note: Food process 1-1/4 cups or quick oats to make 1 cup oat flour (ingredient below).

These cookie are excellent. They taste better than a full fat/sugary version. Great flavor with a nice undertone of honey. Texture is smoother than a typically oatmeal cookie, not too dry or moist. Delicious!
