Reviews for Easy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
"Boo. These cookies were so incredibly dry--nothing I had ever baked before. Going forward it will need a whole lot of tweaking."
"I used creamy peanut butter, quick oats, a little box of raisins, 1/2 tsp of vanilla and 1 tsp of honey, everything the same. I did double the recipe including what I added extra, not the raisins though. They were good, husband loved them and I will try other things that I have read in the comments next time. Over all, it is a simple recipe that tasted good and can be adjusted to what you like."
"I added 3 tablespoons of milk and 2 tablespoons of butter moved oats to 1 1/2 cups oats and it does great!"
"I tried 3 times. Following the recipe exactly. The batter was falling apart. I thought that the crumbling wouldn't a problem. The finished product looks like crushed up granola. The taste is ok. Not a cookie for sure."
"I added a tbsp of oil to the recipe and used creamy peanut butter. They came out great. Nothing like homemade cookies! Best of all no flour or butter! Will make these often."
"I added a handful of chocolate chips and left them round and they came out wonderful. More like chewy peanut ball. My toddler loved them as well."
"Changed a few things to make them more 'cookie' like - Added 40g butter, 1/2 cup SR Flour and only 1 cup oats. Turned out perfect."
"Delicious! I loved these cookies!!! I did cut the sugar in half and replaced with honey worked perfectly!"
"Since there's no butter in this recipe, the texture of these cookies is definitely different than a regular peanut butter cookie, if that's what you're looking for. I used natural peanut butter, which probably made the dough even more dry since there isn't all the added oil and sugar. However, they still taste great. It wouldn't be my first choice for a cookie, but my kids definitely enjoyed every bite!"
"This recipe is definitely not made for old fashioned oats, so use a different recipe if that's what you have! I made it work by adding a few things. Another tablespoon of peanut butter (I used creamy), a tablespoon of coconut oil, a tablespoon of honey, a dash of milk, and a dash of vanilla. They ended up turning out well but it would just be easier to find a better recipe. If you don't add stuff they would just be oat crumbles."
