Gluten Free Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Whether it's spread on apple slices, a toasted bagel or on its own, I absolutely love peanut butter.  I decided to make a batch of these gluten free peanut butter/oatmeal cookies and to my surprise, they came out tasting absolutely delicious (even my husband liked them).  If you love oatmeal cookies and peanut butter as much as I do, then I promise you'll love these cookies too.  This recipe is super easy and takes minutes to prepare.  Here's what you'll need:

 1/4 cup butter
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup sugar and 3/4 cup brown sugar
3 cups rolled oats
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup peanut butter

 Mix sugar, brown sugar and butter together
Tip: Since I don't own a hand mixer, I melted the butter slightly to make mixing easier

 Add eggs, vanilla and baking soda and mix well

 Add peanut butter & oats 
Tip: You can also add chocolate chips, raisins and/or nuts

 Mix everything together

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Place 1 inch balls of dough on a lightly greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart

Bake for 10-12 minutes
Enjoy!

  27. My sister makes these and they are incredible. Now I've finally found her recipe...she said it was from an oatmeal package. These are from the Trader Joe's rolled oats.

  28. I just made these. They were delicious but make sure you make them small or they will crumble. My first pan were 2x2 cookies and fell right apart, I made them smaller for the second batch and they held together quite a bit better (though still not like flour!) I did like them though.
