Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best – and these cookies fit the brief! They are a one-bowl wonder, best enjoyed warm out of the oven but will keep well for a few days (if they last that long!). A great recipe for snacks, picnics or office morning teas, you can boast about how you made them from scratch!

- 1 cup of your favourite peanut butter variety – we used crunchy!

You could use any nut spread including tahini, almond or cashew instead of peanut butter
Try adding a mashed banana (you may need to add another 1/2 cup oats)
