Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Ingredients
To make these tasty oatmeal cookies, you’ll need just a few ingredients:
- Oats. Use rolled or quick oats to make these cookies, they’re going to act as our flour here.
- Egg. I tried making this recipe without the egg a few times, but it did not go well. If you’re going to make this recipe, you need the egg. I am working on an eggless recipe though!
- Peanut butter. We’re using a one ingredient, natural peanut butter here. If you can’t tolerate peanuts, you can use almond or another type of nut butter if desired.
- Coconut oil. I know it seems like a lot of fat, but it’s needed. Don’t skip on the coconut oil.
- Chocolate chips or chocolate chunks. You can also use whatever add-ins you desire – chopped nuts or dried fruit if you like it.
- Coconut sugar. You can also use brown or dark brown sugar here if you can’t find coconut sugar.
- Salt and baking soda. For some contrast and to fluff up the cookies.
How To Make These Flourless Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
It’s so easy! Even if you’ve never made cookies before, you cannot mess this recipe up! Here’s what you need to do:
- Preheat the oven and add all of the ingredients to a bowl.
- Blend with an immersion blender until combined, but not all the way smooth. The mixture should still be somewhat chunky when it’s done.
- Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper, form the cookies with your hands and spread them apart over the baking sheet. Please note, that the cookies will not expand a lot and change their shape, they’re not that talented. But they taste good. So shape them the way you’d like them to look later.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes. You do not want to bake too long, since the cookies can become dry. Be sure to let them cool off a bit before biting into one.
- This recipe made 9 cookies for me (and nobody else muhahaha, okay I shared a few!)
