Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Recipe And Other Easy Morning Hacks! @JIF #Ad

Peanut Butter


    As a New York City public school teacher, I take my responsibility to educate young people very seriously.  It’s a tough and rewarding job and I do it with pride.  Unfortunately, being a full-time career woman is very demanding and it is extremely difficult to juggle working and being a mother.  As a result, mornings definitely don’t always go off without a hitch in our home.  I’ve tried to perfect some morning hacks, over the years, to make our mornings easier.

Peanut Butter

    Since I know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and that children who eat breakfast daily perform better academically, that was the first area where I wanted to improve our morning routine.  Let’s be honest, I don’t have a lot of time to prepare breakfast every morning with our hectic schedule so I had to get creative to make sure my boys eat something wholesome that doesn’t take a lot of time to prepare.  

Peanut Butter

    This is where my morning hack for Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies came to life, what better way add something to our morning breakfast routine that we could all also enjoy on-the-go!  JIF peanut butter was the perfect ingredient for this recipe because it is high in protein and my boys absolutely love it.  Since JIF now comes in new Cinnamon and Maple flavors, it allowed me to add new and inviting flavors to this already delicious recipe!

    Here are some other easy morning hacks for busy moms like me who are on-the-go every morning:

  • Have everyone’s clothing laid out the night before.  I cannot stress how important this is for getting out of the house on time and maintaining your sanity every morning.
  • Don’t skip breakfast!  You can use JIF peanut butter in Cinnamon and Maple flavors to give your morning crackers and breads a delicious taste.
  • Don’t check your social media until you have a break later in the day.  Believe me, it can suck you in and make you fall way behind schedule in the morning.
  • Get a good night’s sleep.  I’m guilty of staying up late and it definitely slows me down when it comes to getting everyone ready in the morning.
  • Prepare something the night before that you and the kids can eat on-the-go or in the car like my Peanut Butter Oatmeal cookies recipe below!

  1. Umm these cookies look delish! I recently found out I can’t have food with white flour so this is a great option for when the sweet cravings appear. I will be saving this recipe on my recipe book!

  2. Those look so yummy!! I would eat them all though!

  3. These look delicious! I love peanut butter and oatmeal so what a great idea to add them together! I wish we had JIF here in Canada. We did years and years ago, but I haven’t seen it on the shelves since!

  4. I always want to try oatmeal cookies, and then I see you incorporate this recipe with peanut butter (favourite). I definitely will try this recipe. Looks delicious as well. I bookmarked it.

  5. Ok, these look fantastic! Another hack I do is to bake eggs in muffin tins. I break the yolk, bake until done, then make an egg and cheese sandwich by zapping it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds, add a slice of cheese onto a piece of toast. You can add veggies into the egg before baking and that’s good too!

  6. Oh yum, these look amazing! I love a good oatmeal cookie recipe! Even better with peanut butter.

  7. JIF is a staple in the house, it’s one of our favorite peanut butter brands! It’s amazing what you can do with it too. I really like this recipe and it’s perfect for busy mornings!

  8. I love peanut butter and I love me some oatmeal but have never had them together! Oh man what I have been missing!!!! I will definitely have to make these.

  9. These look so yummy! Morning hacks? I make overnight oatmeal a lot, and egg muffins. They are easy to grab and go. Sometimes a quiche works well for busy mornings. we homeschool, so I don’t have to rush out many mornings.

  10. I love peanut butter cookies and love how easy this recipe looks to follow and also not a huge list of ingredients!

  11. Robin Masshole Mommy says

    Woah, JIF Cinnamon? I NEED to get my hands on a jar of that. It sounds AWESOME.

  12. I am going to try this. I make muffins for my boys because it is so much easier to just hand them some homemade muffins from the freezer than making them sit at the table to eat.

  13. Yum! There is nothing better than a peanut butter oatmeal cookie.

  14. Those look delish! I had no idea that Jif had “flavored” versions available, either!

  15. I have not seen these new JIF peanut butters before!! I love muffins this would be a great muffin to make a batch of and freeze up!

  16. Neely (@Neelykins) says

    I love any kind of oatmeal cookies! They sound amazing with PB!

  17. I did not know JIF comes in other flavors now–you know I’m going to check that out. These cookies sound yummy and pretty easy to make. Probably would be really good for me since I tend to skip breakfast–a lot.

  18. These are a great idea to make on Sunday for a quick grab and go breakfast during the week. My boys are sure to love them.

  19. These look great!!! I try to have my son’s lunch packed and in the fridge, ready to go. That seems to be the one thing I hate doing in the mornings! Ha!

  20. Reesa Lewandowski says

    Oh, I need to find this ASAP! These cookies look so good! Perfect with a glass of milk!

  21. Yum! These look delicious! I love peanut butter cookies. I will have to try to make these tomorrow.

  22. I could definitely do with a yummy, healthy and easy breakfast! I’m not a morning person at all and most mornings, my kids just get cereal! This would be a welcome addition.
