Hubby says these are the best gluten free cookies that I have made to date! Gotta like those compliments, because I have to admit that there have been some real duds in the gluten free baking world!
These are a keeper as they are not only delicious, but nutritious as well. Oats are high in fibre, help to lower cholesterol, normalize blood sugar and are good for those with a sluggish thyroid. Peanuts are a complete protein and are high in fiber, many minerals and B vitamins as well as phytochemicals. A healthy indulgence!
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
- 1/4 cup butter or coconut oil
- 1 cup natural peanut butter (just peanuts, no icing sugar, vegetable oil, etc)
- 3/4 cup honey (or agave or brown sugar)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 cup millet flour (or other gf flour; brown rice, sorghum, etc.)
- 3 cups rolled oats
Preheat your oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, cream butter and peanut butter together. Beat in honey (or alternate sweetener), eggs and vanilla. Add the baking soda, sea salt, oats, and millet flour, mixing until well combined.
Drop 1 - 1 1/2" balls of cookie dough onto a parchment paper, lined pan and press down lightly with a fork. Bake for approximately 10 minutes. Cool and enjoy!
