Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal Cookies

peanut butter & jelly oatmeal cookies

Smart & Final challenged us to use items from their condiment and oatmeal aisle to create a recipe that showcases their First Street products.  It’s no secret that I love to bake so when given oatmeal, peanut butter and strawberry preservatives what else was I suppose to do but bake up some cookies?

With fall  in the air and kids heading back to school I wanted to make cookies that are reminiscent of our childhood.  Peanut butter and jelly might be a classic childhood combination but adults also enjoy these two flavors together.  It’s nostalgic and just plain good! These peanut butter and jelly oatmeal cookies are the perfect treat to pack in your children’s lunch box, while you’re at it pack a few for yourself too!   They’re soft and light.  The oatmeal adds a nice texture to the cookies, plus oatmeal is full of fiber and it’s healthy right?!  So that cancels out the butter that was used in baking these cookies. (well… not really.) The peanut butter is slightly salty and rich while the strawberry preservatives is sweet and jammy.   The best part is that they’re easy to make and will keep for a few days in an air tight container.

    I love peanut butter and jelly. This is the time of year that I really crave it, too. It must have to do with the back-to-school season. These cookies look like they would definitely satisfy my cravings. I love the idea of rolling them in real peanuts, too.
