Happy National Cookie Day! 🙂
Did you know that was one thing? Yes, thank the good Lord that he is! And these easy-to-bake peanut butter and apple cookies are one of my favorite healthy cookies to make. One of my favorite snacks since I was little has always been apple slices with peanut butter… I mean am I right? Well, I wanted to spoil my six-year-old son and make cookies that are not only made with healthy ingredients, but are also quick and easy to make! These cookies are great to take along on the go, they are amazing breakfast cookies (don't everyone love chocolate for breakfast?) Or, for all the Tone It Up girls, they are also a great M4 choice. I like to take them to work to snack all week.
Let's say my coworkers don't complain.
These cookies (or balls, if you prefer to call them) are made with all-natural peanut butter, coconut oil, and honey, all together with crunchy peanuts, dried apple chunks, puffed rice cereal, and rolled oats. To sweeten them up even more, I added a hint of vanilla and a little spice for apple pie that really bring the flavors together. I also threw in some ground flaxseed to add fiber! These are easily made vegan by substituting honey for agave nectar.
Now by rolling them into balls I struggled with them to keep them together so I found that if you get your hands a little wet with a little water they tend to hold their shape better and work with them much easier. Once formed, they will firm up after sitting for a few minutes. I waited about 20 minutes before sprinkling them with melted white chocolate (if you can't wait that long). Not interested in adding chocolate? Well that's fine too! These still taste great on their own!
But who doesn't like a little chocolate from time to time?
