Flourless Oat and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi all,

Love oatmeal and/or peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies?  You are in for a treat, my friend.  These scrumptious snacks are gluten free, lactose free, and very low in sugar.  They are also a piece of cake to make.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup of nut butter, at room temperature (could go with almond, cashew, or peanut)
  • 6 tablespoons packed light brown sugar (or, I used coconut sugar)
  • Handful of chocolate chips  (I used bittersweet)
  1. In a bowl, combine the oats, cinnamon, and baking soda.  Stir, then set aside.
  2. In a different bowl, beat together (I used a fork) the egg, nut butter, and sugar.
  3. Dump the dry ingredients into the wet ones.  Mix well, until everything is well distributed and mixed.  This can take some time.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 9-11 minutes.

Allow to cool for 10 minutes or so.

These cookies stay fresh for 4-5 days, stored in an airtight container.
