(adapted from All Recipes)

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup no calories sweetener (I used Apriva)
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup AP flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp Flax seed (optional)


Preheat oven to 350F. Prep cookie sheet with parchment paper or silpat.

In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until smooth. Stir in the peanut butter, vanilla and egg until well blended. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter just until moistened. Mix in the oats and chocolate chips until evenly distributed. Drop by tablespoonfuls on to cookie sheet.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until the edges start to brown. Cool on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Make this for the kids when they get home after the first day of school!
