My children have flown the coup. Rest assured, this is a great thing. I wouldn’t have missed the years I was raising them, but I love the freedom I have now. These days I do what pleases me, but you can believe that I drop anything I have going when they come to visit.
These cookies were a gift from Kiery as she walked through the door for an unexpected visit. Kiery’s cookies have just a few ingredients, so they would be an easy cookie recipe for children to make.
Almond and peanut butters are a terrific combination and pack these cookies with lots of flavor. Add some oats to the mix, and you have a great tasting cookie, and a much better alternative to packaged cookies.
All that’s left is to pour a glass of milk and you’re set for a nice chat. Happy cooking!
Healthy cooking tip . . .
Look for nut butters with as few added ingredients as possible. If sugar is high on the list, that’s not the nut butter for you. Trader Joe’s has several nut butters that are reasonably priced.
- 1/4 cup almond butter
- 1/4 cup peanut butter, All Natural preferred
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup oatmeal, gluten free, or regular oatmeal if you aren't gluten sensitive
- 1 large egg
- 1. Preheat oven to 350.
- 2. Combine ingredients and drop onto a nonstick cookie sheet by large tablespoonfuls.
- 3. Bake for 8 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned and cooked through.
