The texture of these lightened up cookies is what I love most about them, of course the mini-chocolate chips comes in a close second! While still warm, the peanut butter taste is very light - although it really comes through when cookies are completely cooled. Recipe is easily doubled or tripled.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Cream sugars, peanut butter and butter until light and fluffy - on medium speed if using a stand mixer.
  3. Add egg whites, one at a time, and then vanilla, mixing on medium speed until thoroughly combined.
  4. Turn mixer off. Combine flour, oats and baking soda.
  5. With your mixer on low, slowly add flour mixture until completely mixed.
  6. Stir in mini-chocolate chips and, if using, coconut.
  7. Drop by tablespoons onto baking sheets. These do not spread, if you like flat cookies, use bottom of glass or fork to smash cookies flat. I like mine mound shaped from the cookie scoop.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are just golden brown.

These were really good. I only had one egg, so I used it instead of the two egg whites. I also got 24 cookies out of this recipe. The texture of the cookies were great. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for 1~2~3 Hit Wonders.

Followed your recipe right on down (love that chunky peanut butter) & I managed to get 30 cookies! Really enjoyed the taste combo of PD & coconut & chocolate ~ Very nice, & I'll be making these again in the future! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits tag]

I got 28 cookies all on one baking sheet. You said they didn't spread but mine did LOL They were all side by side, holding hands LOL I used reduced-fat peanut butter (creamy), light butter, 1 egg instead of 2 egg whites, quick oats, and no chocolate chip or coconut. I wanted them plain peanut butter. And I love the taste and they're so easy to do with the mixer. Thanks Brooke :) Made for 123 hit wonders
