I love trying to figure out how to make recipes that would normally be considered "junk" food into nutritious snacks that you aren't afraid to give your kids. I’m not big on totally depriving kids of junk food (I feel like that only leads to a slew of other problems in the long run) but if I can come up with a version of a cookie that doesn’t include all of the nasty fillers and preservatives found in store bought brands, I’m making it homemade for my kids.
These Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies will have your little ones’ eyes popping wide open when they see them coming out of the oven. These cookies have a healthy carbohydrate from the oatmeal and a protein punch from the peanut butter -- great for kids who have been active running around all day. All they’re going to care about though is that they are delicious!
