These cookies. They are all the things. Soft. Chocolatey. Peanut buttery. Gluten free for my peeps.(HOLLER!) And so delicious.
You will love this cookie so much. You will find excuses to make them. Take them to parties, to new mamas (good for making milk), to the office, and before you know it...you will have the recipe memorized. I’m sorry about that, but I don’t regret the indulgence one.single.bit. Ya gotta live life! You can eat your kale AND enjoy a dang good cookie.
With no further ado...you’re welcome :)
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
1 stick of unsalted grassfed butter, softened
1 1/2 cups coconut sugar
3/4 cup of plain peanut butter. * see note
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup of oat flour
1 tsp aluminum free baking soda
1/2 tsp pink salt
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips
Notes on Ingredients:
I try to always buy organic no stir peanut butter without sugar. So the ingredients may be peanuts, salt, and palm oil. I’ve found this makes the best cookie. And if you have a great blender, make your own oat flour! Super easy, and saves a buck. Now the chocolate chips...I’ve ventured to try different ones...and I always come back to these. They are a solid choice.
The coconut sugar is the one ingredient that I never substitute. Coconut sugar has a lower glycemic index, minerals, vitamins, and phytonutrients that makes it a good alternative to table sugar. It also has a fiber in it called inulin, which is known to boost beneficial bacteria in the gut.
BUT I should say that I’ve made these cookies with natural jiff peanut butter, regular salted butter, off brand chocolate chips when it’s all I’ve had access to, and they still turn out great. So use what you have, these things aren’t deal breakers guys. I like to give y’all options to keep things in your food budget, but also give y’all better ingredient choices if your trying to focus more on nutrition or clean things up in the kitchen.
Cream together butter, coconut sugar, peanut butter, and vanilla.
Add oat flour, baking soda, and salt
Add rolled oats
Add chocolate chips very last.
Use a cookie scoop or a tablespoon to spoon onto parchment paper.
Bake for 7 minutes at 375 degrees
Now...good luck rationing these babies. And for sure hide them from your kids. I busted Quay double fisting these suckers at 8 am, and shoving them in her mouth as fast as she could when she saw me coming.
