Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies


I’ve been on a massive peanut butter kick the last few days when usually I’m more of a Tahini girl. I go through these phases where I crave a specific food and want to eat it everyday and right now, peanut butter is that food! I’ve been eating it straight out of the jar with a spoon. I never understood how people could do that but now that I’ve tried it…i can’t stop haha!

Anyway, so since I’m on this kick I thought it only made sense to bake some healthy peanut butter cookies…and here’s how they turned out! They’re dairy free and can easily be made gluten-free by using gluten-free oats!


Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies

Makes: 12-14 cookies



  • Preheat your oven to 180*C (160*C fan assisted)/ 350*F
  • In a bowl, mix together the oat flour, coconut sugar, salt and baking soda
  • In a separate bowl, mix the peanut butter with the egg until well combined
  • Pour the peanut butter and egg mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredient, mix well
  • Using an ice cream scoop or a spoon, take equal amounts of the batter and place onto a baking sheet covered in parchment paper
  • Press the cookies down using the back of a fork to create the criss-cross pattern that peanut butter cookies are known for
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes
  • transfer the cookies onto a wire rack and leave them to cool completely


The cookies will be soft when you take them out of the oven, so do make sure to leave them to cool down completely. I actually like to store these healthy peanut butter cookies in the fridge overnight before eating them. They taste much better and hold better the next day 🙂
