Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Styling and Photography by Sina Mizrahi

I had to include one healthful cookie in this set so I don’t lose my reputation of providing healthier options! Whoever receives these will be so grateful. They’re delicious and slightly better for you!


  • 1 cup natural peanut butter (no sugar added)
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup honey (organic preferred)
  • ¼ cup silan (no sugar added)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup quick oats
  • ¼ cup flour (whole wheat pastry or white spelt preferred)
  • ⅓ cup mini chocolate chips
  • ⅓ cup caramel chips

Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).

Place peanut butter, egg, honey, and silan in the bowl of a mixer and mix well. Add vanilla, baking soda, salt, oats, and flour and continue beating until incorporated. Fold in chips. Alternately, you can mix all ingredients in a bowl by hand until well combined.

Prepare a bowl of water to dip the scoop in when shaping the cookies and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a medium-sized scoop, form cookies and place on baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden around the edges and slightly soft in the center. Transfer from oven to wire rack and let cool completely.

These cookies freeze well and taste amazing straight from the freezer.

Tip: You can sub 13 cup finely chopped pecans for the caramel chips.
