Oatmeal Peanut Butter Breakfast Cookies (Low Sugar)

These breakfast cookies have a special place in my heart as they were the first breakfast cookies I made. They are moist and peanut butter-y and perfect. Also, it's really a throw everything into the bowl and mix it around kind of a recipe (my 3-year-old did pretty much all the mixing work). Also, if you're feeling rebellious, you can add Reese's Pieces to them.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Breakfast Cookies
Serves (maybe we should say 'makes' 12)


1 egg
2 T brown sugar
2 T white sugar
1/4 t vanilla
½ t baking soda
1 t butter
2 T sweet potato puree (Optional. For the last many years I've had a babies and toddlers hanging about and therefore plenty of vegetable purees.)
½ C peanut butter


1 ½ C oatmeal
½ C chocolate chips or Reese’s pieces (opt)

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Let set on pan for 10-15 minutes (unless you’re us, in which case you’ll scoop some into the freezer, for Pete’s bloomin’ sake).


  1. Yes, you should say "makes" 12 instead of serves... I need 2 plus a cup of milk to fill up :) But I love these so much, and the oatmeal raisin ones, too. Thanks for the introduction to breakfast cookies! I think they are perfect and I can make batches and freeze extras in sets of 2 in the freezer to pull out and pop in the microwave on busy mornings!

  2. Love them, thank you so much for the recipe! My favorite blog!!!!
