Peanut Butter Chocolate Oat Cookies (gluten free)

Stay tuned I have some fun news.  I am going on KSL next week demoing healthy road trip snacks and to make it even more fun I am going to do a GIVE AWAY you don’t want to miss.  Stay tuned I will post it next Monday–now on to a fabulous cookie!

These peanut butter oat cookies I have been meaning to post for awhile now.  My sweet friend Marie gave me these for my birthday, because they don’t have any wheat flour in them just oats.   These are some of the best peanut butter cookies I have tried with or without gluten.  They are SO good, truth be told she gave them to me at her house and on the way home I ate most of the plate without even thinking about it!  I guess your birthday only comes once right.

A word on cookies and baking with  natural sweeteners.  Cookies need granulated sugar to spread, at high heat the sugar melts and they flatten out.  Liquid sweeteners don’t spread as well.  That is why liquid sweeteners, like honey, and maple syrup make good cakey (pumpkin cookies) but not your chocolate chip cookies.   

Enjoy these gluten free peanut butter cookies, I know I did!

      Jenn-I bet your best bet would be Winco in the bulk section. I have seen sucanat there, not sure if they have coconut sugar. I have seen raw sugar in most grocery stores as well. Let me know if you find them.

    What temperature do you bake these at and for how long? I couldn’t find the directions.

    Quick cooking oats or old fashioned rolled oats?

      Hi Bethany! I like to use old fashioned oats and pulse them for a minute in my blender. Hope that helps. I think it would work with quick oats too.
