Flourless Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

azckjs_0x_6-WkRElbFbeoiMuicOY8HxtxrtC3aU7vM=w647-h486-no I came across this enticing recipe while I was surfing the internet for a flourless peanut butter cookie. I had been dreaming of peanut butter cookies the night before ( Yes, I dream about these types of things…) and since I have recently decided to cut out unnecessary gluten and wheat from my diet (for multiple health reasons) I opted for this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction. Having looked over the recipe and ingredients and knowing how I prefer my peanut butter cookies, I did, however, make adjustments. Feel free to check out the original recipe at :http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2014/03/23/flourless-peanut-butter-oatmeal-cookies/ Or try my slightly tweaked version! Either way, enjoy and happy baking. tFN3BJSnECAmte1Sbi1YQcMaf36kx9OJEo4STpX8R8o=w717-h537-no   Ingredients:

  • 2/3 Cup Old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tsp. Baking soda
  • 1/4 Salt
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 Cup All natural crunchy or smooth peanut butter (Ex: Laura Scudder’s)
  • 6 Tbs. Packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup – 1/2 cup Semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. In a small/medium bowl mix together rolled oats, baking soda and salt.
  2. In a separate large bowl beat eggs. Add peanut butter and sugar. Mix with rubber spatula until combined.
  3. Pour oat mixture into wet ingredients and using rubber spatula stir until well incorporated.
  4. Gently fold chocolate chips into batter.
  5. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 350°F and line baking sheet with parchment paper if it is not non-stick.
  7. Place about 1/2 Tbs rounds of batter onto baking sheet spacing about 1 inch apart. Flatten each round slightly with the back of a spoon.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  9. Cool and enjoy! ( Since I am lactose intolerant I loved dipping these into a glass of organic coconut milk ) 🙂
