I used rolled oats. Not instant and they turned out great. This recipe is simple,quick and delicious. It will be my go-to recipe for a healthy cookie choice.

This is delicious! I have a lot of those instant oatmeal flavored packets and used the maple to make these. Also used creamy peanut butter as my husband accidentally bought a 4lb container. ?? They are super soft and taste so perfect!

Made recipe as written. . they are easy to make and the cookies have a nice texture but they were Just okay, not much peanut butter flavor and I like my cookies sweeter than these. Won't make again.

Great fast recipe. Whips up in just a couple of minutes and finished baking in a few more. Not too sweet but satisfies that cook craving. Didn't have quick cooking oats on hand and used old fashioned. Great consistancy. Will definitely make them again. Hmmm, think a little marshmallow creme would make a yummy sandwich. Look out Lil Debbie!

These were the best cookies ive ever had. I added a little vanilla and some chocolate chips in the cookies while they were on the cookie sheet. Sooooo yummy. And they arent that bad for you either!

So, i changed the sugar for honey... and nope. Honey just takes over all the other flavours. I also added powdered cinnamon and peanut Butter ofc! They were tasty, good texture (very fluffy) and really quick to make!

I used this as a starting point I had limited ingredients. I used a fork to mix everything. The major different I did was instead of brown sugar I use 1/4 cup of raw honey (yellow). They were not crumbly at all. I used extra virgin online oil on the cooking sheet so it would not stick. They almost tasted like little breads. I was worried they would be shriveled but they actually rose and were nice and fluffy and soft. I baked them 11 mins at 360 degrees. I got 7 cookies out of the batch.

Only five stars if you use Old Fashioned Oats. Don't use 1 minute Oats. Also melt the peanut butter for 30 secs in microwave and only use 2 tsp of brown sugar. It won't be too sweet and it's healthier. Brown sugar is super sweet. But make sure to use the right amount of peanut butter.
