These Flourless Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies are soft, chewy and full of that classic, favorite combo: peanut butter and chocolate! They are packed with high-quality, super dark chocolate chunks. Yes, the title is a mouthful, but I didn't want to leave out any of the mouthwatering details. These cookies stay soft and chewy for days, but I doubt they'll last that long. Like magic, these Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies are made without any flour, which makes them the perfect gluten-free cookie as long as you use gluten-free oats. Whip up a batch and you'll see why these Oatmeal Cookies are my husband's absolute favorite cookie (and possibly his favorite dessert!).
Flourless Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies: a great Gluten-Free Cookie Option
Ok, so I said these are flourless oatmeal cookies which makes them a great gluten-free cookie option. If you want these to be truly gluten-free, you will have to find certified gluten-free oats. Oats do not have gluten, but often they are processed in a facility that processes wheat, barley, and rye and cross-contamination inevitably occurs. If you are allergic or sensitive to gluten, make sure to find gluten-free oats. Bob's Red Mill is a great source.
What I didn't do is make any "these cookies are healthy/healthier" claims as a result of them being flourless. They are still packed with all the best cookie ingredients (butter, brown sugar, vanilla...). I'm not sure about you, but when I make cookies, I'm not looking for something healthy. I'm looking for a treat, a comforting taste and texture, an irresistible aroma floating through my house. These Flourless Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies deliver ALL of those things in a cute, flourless package.
