I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to make cookies and I didn’t have any butter – or flour – and didn’t make cookies because I thought I couldn’t! My twin sister no joke gave me a 4 POUND bag of Chocolate chips for Christmas. She knows I love adding chocolate chips to pancakes, muffins, waffles, smoothies, or just a handful for a snack!
So this GIANT bag has been in my pantry and before my kids eat it all by the handful I thought I would make cookies. I went to Pinterest and searched for chocolate chip cookies and a few of the posts were for flourless cookies. Huh? Could that work? I read about a dozen recipes, and read the comments for those recipes – some cookies turned out flat as a pancake and others turned out perfectly.
So I decided to give it a shot and these cookies are delicious – no flour – no butter and Gluten Free!
- 3 cups peanut butter
- 3 cups brown sugarpacked
- 3 cups oats
- 6 eggsslightly beaten
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds(optional)
- In a large mixing bowl add all the ingredients except the chocolate chips and mix at low speed for 2 minutes. Add the chocolate chips and mix for another 30 seconds. Chill the batter for about 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 10-13 minutes until the edges brown. Let the cookies cool on the rack for at least 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack - they are very delicate right out of the oven.
This cookie recipe makes a TON of cookies, so feel free to half the recipe.
