Healthy No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

Sometimes, you’re just in the mood for a cookie.  My boys love these cookies and they are full of ingredients that I’m comfortable with.  You can add more oats for a firmer cookie and/or chocolate chips, coconut, chopped nuts for more flavor/texture.  However, I will say that we happen to like the basic, unamended recipe the best!

Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/3 cup honey

1/4 cup butter

1 cup oats

2 Tbsp. wheat germ or flour

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup chocolate chips, coconut and/or chopped nuts, optional

Preparation

Heat the peanut butter, honey, and butter until smooth.  Then, add the oats, wheat germ, and vanilla.  Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.  Then, add in the chocolate chips, if using.  Pour into an 8×8″ pan and refrigerate.  Alternatively, you can drop spoonfuls onto wax paper and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.  Enjoy!
