THM Recipe: Peanut Butter Oat Breakfast Cookies (E)

Dear Reader,

These cookies make a yummy and fiber-filled breakfast. The recipe makes 6 cookies which is plenty for 2 breakfasts. The fiber will fill you up very well.

Peanut Butter Oat Breakfast Cookies (E)


1/2 c rolled oats

1/2 c defatted peanut flour

1/4 c oat fiber

1/2 c xylitol

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/3 c egg whites

1/4 c unsweetened applesauce

2 tsp molasses

splash vanilla

2-3 tbsp almond milk or water


1. Preheat oven to 400.

2. Mix all ingredients except almond milk.

3. Add almond milk a little at a time until the dough is just moistened but still a pretty thick dough. If it is too dry, add a little more almond milk or water.

3. Form into six cookies on a cookie sheet.

4. Bake 15 minutes. Ideally, the cookies will be pretty firmly set yet moist (not soggy) on the inside.

    How many of these could I have and still be in E territory? I guess that would be 5 grams of fat or less and 45 grams carbs or less.


    • The only fat is in the (defatted) peanut flour. Mine says on the pacage that 1/4 c has 3g of fat. That would mean the whole recipe woudl be 6g of fat. So you could almost eat the whole thing but I think half a recipe’s worth is probably better. Personally, that is plenty of fiber for me and I think I would feel it if I ate more. The carbs aren’t enough that you shoudl run up against the 45g limit.

    Not sure what I did wrong, but the dough came out more like a cake batter than a dough. Even before adding the milk. It still tastes great and I just made it into “bars” rather than cookies, but wondering what I did wrong?


    • Bars sound like a great idea :)
      I like to get the dough just moistened so it is fine to leave out the milk if you are already there. I actually shape it into cookies with my hands; it’s thta thick. Gluten free flours often take a while to absorb liquid so you coudl try just letting it sit for 5 minutes next time and see if it stiffens up. If not, try more fiber or less liquid (egg whites? there’s not a ton of liquid in there). I also might wonder if different brands of oat flour have different effects. It’s not an ingerdient I’ve been using for long so I don’t have a ton of experience with it.

        Thanks for the info and suggestions! I loved them and will definitely be making them again no matter what shape they come out. My 7 year old and husband loved them too!

    Could you leave out the applesauce? I hate to buy a jar because I very rarely use it anymore. I could make “fresh applesauce with an apple”…


    • If you leave it out, I would think you’d need something else for the moisture. Pumpkin, maybe? We buy those six packs of 1/2 c unsweetened apple sauce cups for the kids and I use those. No wasting a whole jar of applesauce if it doesn’t get eaten up.


      • My youngest is 18. LOL :-) Not sure pumpkin and peanut butter really go together, at least for me. That would be a whole can of pumpkin and I’d have to then find something to make with pumpkin. Maybe some NF Greek yogurt. Sounds like a plan…


  5. Going to make these tomorrow! They look delicious!


  6. Sorry for the Question but what is Oat Fiber ? Don’t have any…
