Why you should make these cookies (as if you needed extra reasons)

I’m crazy about anything oatmeal. It’s such a versatile ingredient, and so very filling too! Eat one of those cookies and you won’t be thinking about unhealthy snacks for a while. For me, oatmeal cookies are a great way of snacking too because they are gluten free. I’m not intolerant, luckily, but my stomach is not that happy when I eat a lot of bread, pasta and cookies in one day.

Another great thing about these cookies is that there’s no added sugar. I used honey instead, and the cookies get loads of flavour from the peanut butter (you can use the unsweetened version!) and the coconut.

And then of course there’s the fact that they are simply delicious! I’m crazy about peanut butter, crazy to the point of eating it straight out of the jar (boyfriend, if you’re reading this: that’s a lie. I would never ever do that just because I love love looove peanut butter) so that’s a great reason to bake these babies too. Obviously!
