How do you eat yours? Do you twist it, lick it, dunk it? There is a lot to be said about how one eats their Oreos, or, at least, that’s what the online personality quizzes say. Oreos, or better known and tag lined as “milk’s favorite cookie” were introduced in the U.S. in 1912. It's speculated that the name Oreo is derived from the Greek word meaning beautiful, nice or well done, all ways to describe your immediate feelings when your taste buds are first introduced to this famous cookie. Anyone who has eaten an Oreo knows that it is almost impossible only to eat one, or two, okay or three and that’s the problem. It is no secret that these sweet treats are not healthy for you, and one serving is actually two cookies with icing squeezed in between them. Pamela from the Brooklyn Farm Girl recipe blog has come up with a more nutritious way that you may be able to enjoy your Oreos without eating the entire box with this Homemade Peanut Butter Oreo Cookie recipe.

Sure there are many Oreo desserts and Oreo cookie recipes out there, but this Homemade Peanut Butter Oreo Cookies recipe could easily take the cake or cookie! Nabisco Oreo cookies have come in and continue to come in a variety of flavors with limited edition flavors as high as thirteen ranging from fruit punch, cinnamon bun, pumpkin spice and cookie dough. The tried, and true flavors of Nabisco Oreo cookies that are here to stay are original, double stuff, cool mint, chocolate crème, golden and, of course, peanut butter Oreo cookies. Who doesn’t love a good ole peanut butter cookie? And well of course then there’s chocolate, arguably the best flavor duo, power couple out there who’s flavor profiles bring out the best in one another. Pamela’s Homemade Peanut Butter Oreo Cookies recipe allows you to indulge in that peanut butter Oreo cookie fantasy without having to feel as guilty for how many you eat.

Let’s not get the wrong idea, it’s still a cookie and is not healthy for you, but there are ways that you can, in fact, eat them healthier than your go to boxed favorites. Did you know that the nutrition in peanut butter starts as an excellent source of protein, dietary fiber and helps to include more of the "good fat" or unsaturated fat into your body? Choosing natural peanut butter eliminates any additional sugar in the recipe as well. Baking the cookies with cocoa powder as suggested provides you with many vitamins and minerals and increases your intake of vitamin E, which is an antioxidant. The powder also provides a modest source of choline which can assist in nerve communication within your brain. All of these additions are far more beneficial than the long list of unhealthy ingredients on the side of your box of Nabisco Oreo cookies that range from high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavoring to name only a couple which is not doing your body any favors. So whether you are a dunker, licker, or twister you can thank Pamela at Brooklyn Farm Girl for this delicious Homemade Peanut Butter Oreo Cookies recipe.
