If you love peanut butter, you're going to love these cookies. Soft, tender and loaded with peanut taste, these cookies are also perfect for people with special diets. The recipe is both gluten-free and vegan, but you'd never know it.
These cookies are quick to make and bake - no chilling/resting period and only about 8-9 minutes in the oven. Don't try to use natural peanut butter in this recipe. If just seems to turn out really greasy and flat. We prefer Skippy for PB cookies. Not sure what is in their formula that makes it best, but we think it's great for baking.
This recipe makes a small batch, about 18, 3-inch cookies, so feel free to double. A stand mixer is a real help when mixing peanut butter and oat flour (which we made by tossing rolled oats for a minute or so in the food processor). Of course, SideSwipe makes mixing effortless - especially if you are doubling up!
We adapted the recipe from one from Blissful Basil. The cookies can be baked a little longer if you like crunchier cookies, but we think they're best in their softest form(8-9 mins). They will keep for a couple of days at room temperature. We haven't tried freezing them (they were gone pretty quickly!), but they should freeze well for at least a month.
Calories: About 150 each for 18 cookies made from a single batch.
tips & shopping
We have an old Pampered Chef sliding measuring cup that we use to measure out peanut butter. It has a plunger that pushes measured ingredients out - no mess, no digging into a standard measuring cup. They still offer their Measure-All cups online.
You can also purchase a dishwasher-safe product by KitchenArt, Adjust-a-Cup with the same features, including being dishwasher safe. Click on the photo below to go directly to Amazon.
