If the cookies have chocolate and peanut butter in them they are definitely a winner! One of my favorites is the good ol’ No Bake Cookie. You know the one with oatmeal and chocolate and peanut butter? Drop those babies by tablespoonful onto some waxed or parchment paper and you’ve got some addicting, yummy deliciousness. Sometimes I like to eat the dough straight out of the pot. Don’t wag your finger at me, I know you’ve done it yourself when no one was watching! The problem is there’s probably a million calories in them and you’re going to regret eating the whole batch pretty soon after it’s gone. However, with this healthy oatmeal you have the feeling of being satisfied by the chocolate and peanut butter flavors but you won’t have any of the regret or guilt!
This recipe is 200 calories and it really sticks to your ribs. I love eating oatmeal for breakfast because it makes me feel full until lunch time and I’m more likely to eat healthy all day long. I used the PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter because it only has 40 calories for 2 Tbsp of it…as opposed to 190 calories in regular peanut butter. The powdered peanut butter is simply slow roasted peanuts that have been pressed to remove 85% of the fat and oil. I was skeptical at first but am pleased now to have a jar in my home for shakes and oatmeal and other things like that. I also used cocoa powder which only has 10 calories per tablespoon. I went with the light agave because it has a mild flavor and is ultra sweet so you don’t have to use as much sweetener…and therefore less calories. Try this for breakfast tomorrow! I bet you’ll enjoy it. Top with banana or even shredded coconut. YUM!
