Easy WIC Friendly Cookies

WIC (Women, Infant, and Children) is a nutrition program that helps pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and children (to the age of 5) supplement nutrition. 

This is a simple recipe & many kiddos like it. There is an option to add a little sugar or maple syrup to this recipe but it is not necessary. The peanut butter that WIC allows typically has a decent amount of sugar already in it. 


What you need:

  • 1 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 1 Packet of Instant Oats 
  • 1 Egg
  • optional* 1/4 Cup of sugar, brown sugar, or 2 Tbsp of Maple Syrup. 

What to do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350
  2. Mix together your ingredients well.
  3. You can either 'drop' the dough onto a prepared baking sheet or your can drop them on and flatten them out a little bit. 
  4. Bake them for about 10 minutes 
  5. They do crumble easily, but are flavorful. You can add in chocolate chips, flavored oatmeal (I'm sure brown sugar + maple would taste great) but it isn't necessary. This helps you work with what you have to make a yummy treat for the kids or yourself!
