Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies with Strawberry Jam

I wanted to make a healither cookie.  I like having little snacks on hand but want to try to keep it as healthy as I can.  I made 2 batches of these cookies, the first time cutting down the oil however they were quite dry.  So the second time I use the whole amount of oil and put in extra peanut butter.  They were so much nicer!  You have to make sure that you do not over bake these as they will turn hard.

Allow to cool and top with a small dallop of strawberry jam!


Recipe:
PREHEAT OVEN TO 375*

2/3 cup conola oil
3/4 cup peanut butter
Mix both to combine, add
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
Mix all of the above ingredients until combined

In a second bowl stir to combine
3 cups rolled oats (perhaps a little less as the dough is pretty crumbly)
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut
1 tsp baking power
1/2 tsp baking soda

Add the dry to the wet ingredients and mix to combine.  Roll into balls, flatten abit.  Bake on a parchment lined cookie sheet!  Nice in the morning with a hot coffee!
I found this recipe (minus the few changes I made) along with lots of other yummy goodies here!!!
