Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies Are the Protein-Packed Treat You've Been Craving

These tasty cookies are made with peanut butter and oats in place of some of the flour. As a result, the cookies are considerably higher in protein, healthy monounsaturated fats, fibre, vitamins and minerals than conventional cookies, according to sports nutritionist, Anita Bean.

Peanut Butter Cookies


Peanut Butter Cookies


  1. 125g crunchy peanut butter
    75g brown sugar
    100g olive oil spread
    1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
    1⁄2 tsp vanilla extract
    100g oats
    100g plain white flour
    1⁄2 egg, beaten


  1. Preheat the oven to 190 ̊C (170 fan), gas mark 3 and line one or two baking trays with baking parchment.
  2. Place all the ingredients except the egg in a large mixer bowl and mix on low speed until combined. Alternatively, beat together with a wooden spoon. Add the beaten egg, then mix together until you have a smooth, fairly stiff dough.
  3. Roll heaped teaspoonfuls of the mixture into balls, about 3cm in diameter. Place on the baking trays, about 2.5cm apart, then flatten lightly with your hand. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until light golden.
