Peanut Butter Oatmeal Sandwich Cookie Recipe

Healthy Treat: Peanut Butter Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies

If you're craving a chewy peanut buttery treat, this might just become your new favorite cookie. While a cookie is still a cookie, this recipe offer a slightly healthier goody. The chewy oatmeal cookie coupled with the creamy peanut butter and mashed banana mixture makes a perfect flavor combination. The only downside to whipping up a batch of these cookies is you may find it impossible to hold back from eating the entire batch. Plus, it's National Peanut Butter Month, so get baking and celebrate.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies

Ingredients

For sandwiches:

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup Sucanat (or sugar)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups quick oats

For creamy filling:

3 ripe bananas
3 tablespoons natural peanut butter (I prefer crunchy)
3 teaspoons honey

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Lightly spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. In a larger bowl, beat the oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until fluffy. Pour the flour mixture and oats into the bowl and mix well.
  4. Place one inch balls of dough on cookie sheets. You'll have enough dough for 36 small cookies.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, removing from oven when the edges are slightly tan. After a minute transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.
  6. While the cookies are baking and cooling, prepare the filling. In a bowl mash the bananas with the peanut butter and honey.
  7. Place a dollop of filling on one half of the bottom of a cookie and then top it with another cookie.

    Makes about 18 sandwiches.

Do these need to be stored in the fridge or can they be left out?

Has anyone tried using a sugar substitute and egg whites instead of whole eggs?

 @hykuw try 1/3 cup of vegetable oil like canola. The recipe probably has more oil to make the cookies crispier. As long as the batter is moist enough to roll into balls, you should be okay!

One cup of vegetable oil seems like a lot.  Can applesauce be substituted?

Made this last night and they are delicious! I was out of whole wheat flour so I substituted with peanut flour, oat bran, wheat germ and some white flour. Also used the flax seed peanut butter from Trader Joes for another dash of nutritional value.

Hmm, if the recipe makes 36 cookies, shouldn't it make 18 sandwiches? Otherwise, yum!
