Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

I feel like I have only been sharing serious desserts with you guys lately – aka, not healthy but totally yum. So, I thought it was time I share something a little better for your waistline today! I saw this recipe last week on Pinterest, immediately pinned it and decided I would actually make them (as opposed to everything else I pin). I made these late last week, and let me tell you, if you have the right expectations, these are delish! A traditional, chewy yummy cookie these are not. But if you’re watching what you eat but still want something sweet in your day, this is the cookie for you because there is no oil, no flour, no eggs, and no added sugar in these! Plus, as with everything I make, the recipe is pretty easy.
