So I was meeting with a client this morning that mentioned she made some oat bran peanut butter cookies that tasted really great. Hmmmm…oat bran is a great source of soluble fiber which is helpful in lowing blood cholesterol and anything with peanut butter has my name on it…so… since I had about and hour between clients, I buzzed home and started to whip together my version of peanut butter oat bran cookies. I am a bit impulsive like that.
My client used the Hodgson Mill recipe found here. I tweaked it a bit–as I have been known to do.
No need to make a HUGE batch of cookies that I will gobble ALL up at once. Yes, I have been known to do that.
Then I rushed back to my office for my next 3 clients.
I do love that I have an office space just minutes from home.
When I returned home from working I ate about 8 ‘mini’ cookies.
So….if you want to make your cholesterol cringe and enjoy a tasty Peanut-y Glob of Goodness, try this recipe out…Peanut Butter Oat Bran Cookies with Sunflower Seeds and Coconut (and perhaps chocolate chips if you so desire)!
FODMAPs peeps–this is a nice high fiber cookie that I made with gluten free flour. A great low FODMAP GF flour blend is King Arthur Flour gluten free multi-purpose flour as it is free of soy and bean flours.
