Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
Peanut butter oatmeal cookies made with just 10 ingredients and one bowl. These cookies are healthier than most -- gluten-free, made without butter or oil and only about 100 calories per cookie!
Servings: 20 cookies
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 1 egg whisked
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats gluten-free, if necessary
- 1 Tablespoon oat flour gluten-free, if necessary
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips I like Enjoy Life brand
- 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
Preheat oven: Preheat oven to 375°F.
Mix ingredients: In a large bowl stir together peanut butter, coconut sugar and egg. Add vanilla, oats, oat flour, baking soda and salt. Stir to combine and then gently stir in chocolate chips and shredded coconut. Refrigerate dough for 5-10 minutes.
Form cookies: Using a tablespoon, make heaping 1-inch dough balls and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Press each cookie down lightly before baking.
Bake: Bake for 10 minutes, until edges are lightly browned.
Let cool: Remove and let cool on baking sheet for 4-5 minutes, then cool on a wire rack.
Flax-egg – I haven't tried this recipe with a flax-egg, but I bet it would work just fine. If you try it with a flax-egg be sure to leave a comment so I know how it turned out. Thanks for being my recipe testers!
Flour – I haven't tested this recipe with a different type of flour, but any other should work out fine. You might just need to add a little extra depending on which flour you use.
Peanut butter – I’m assuming you can swap with any nut or seed butter, but I’ve only tested the recipe with natural peanut butter and almond butter, which is also delicious!
