Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Happy Cookie Week. There is another good one coming at you on Friday. But for today, lets focus on these peanut butter cookies.
My husband declared these the perfect mixture of crunch and chewy. Then he wondered how I made them without flour. I said oats and science. I can't explain the science part though.
The dough for this will seem pretty wet. And the cookies seem a little undone. Rest assured the dough is okay and the cookies firm up.
They don't look appealing before they're baked. I mean, look at that mess of a mixing bowl.
If you used gluten free oats you've got some celiac-friendly cookies too.
By the way, if you look at the original recipe her cookies are way thicker than mine. Not sure why mine turned out differently but I like how they turned out. Enjoy!
Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:
  • 2/3 cup old fashioned oats

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips
To Make:

1) Preheat oven to 350 and line two baking sheets with parchment papers.

2) Stir together oats and baking soda with a fork. Using a mixer, combine peanut butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla for 3-5 minutes. With a wooden spoon stir in oats and baking soda, then chocolate chips.

3) Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, put dough onto baking sheets. Bake for 10-11 minutes until golden brown. Let cool on baking sheet. Store in airtight container. Enjoy!
