Peanut Butter Flourless Cookies (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)

Oh my.

How could a recipe this simple taste. so. darn. good?

Watch out--if you make these cookies, they'll be hard to keep on hand.  But don't feel totally guilty about indulging, since whole grain oats and peanut butter are the two prime ingredients, you'll be eating a cookie with a good amount of goodness, too.

If you're feeling extra indulgent, add a few chocolate chips to each cookie.  Pure Bliss!

Peanut Butter Flourless Cookies (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)

1/2 cup gluten-free whole oats
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup natural peanut butter (no-stir type, can use almond or other nut butters too)
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
(chocolate chips--optional--use dairy-free chips if you want the cookies to be dairy-free)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a food processor, blender or coffee grinder, grind the oats, brown sugar and baking soda until they resemble coarse sand.


 Add the peanut butter, vanilla extract and egg:

And process until the ingredients are fully incorporated, making sure to scrape the sides at least once between processing:

Form into tablespoon size balls:


And press gently with a fork:

Or, gently press in several chocolate chips on top of each cookie:

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cookies brown slightly and look either like this:

Or this:

**This is important:  let cool fully before serving.  Like all cookies, while they are warm they are crumbly, but these are especially crumbly while still warm.**

But did I mention they are delicious??

Makes 18 delicious cookies!

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
