If you’d like to mix things up with this recipe, feel free to:

  • Use a different nut/seed butter. Any nut or seed butters can be substituted
  • for peanut butter in this recipe.
  • Add coconut. Use 1/3 cup less of oats, and in their place, add in 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut.
  • Add nuts. Feel free to add an extra 1/2 cup of your choice of nuts to the cookie batter.
  • Add Oreos. For an ultra-decadent retro twist, feel free to add in 6 chopped up Oreos into the mix after stirring in the oats.
