I made these yummy cookies yesterday. They are made without flour and if you use oatmeal instead of whole grains cereal, you will make them gluten free. Today when I checked, there were only 2 left. I’m hiding them since there are 3 boys and I wouldn’t want anyone to get their feelings hurts. Guess where they can be found.
These made just shy of 3 dozen…you can make them a little smaller if you need more. That’s probably a good idea if you have hungry cookie monsters like I do. I also have another, no flour, Peanut Butter Cookies I made earlier this year that my boys also gobbled up. Yep, they love peanut butter! Make some of these thin, chewy, peanutty, chocolaty cookies for your cookie monsters and a little extra for yourself. You’ll be glad you did.
Peanut Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup extra crunchy peanut butter
- 1 cup dark brown brown sugar, make your own brown sugar
- 1/2 cup whole grain hot cereal, or quick oatmeal, uncooked….make instant oatmeal
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F Stir baking soda in with sugar. Mix peanut butter and with sugar until incorporated. I used a fork, you can use a mixer to make it easier. Stir in beaten egg. Add dry cereal stir well. Stir in chocolate chips. Roll into walnut size balls, place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes until turning brown around the edges. Take out of oven when done. They will be soft. Let sit on cookie sheet for 1 – 2 minutes. Transfer to cooling racks.
