Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk PB Cookies

Paleo Cookie

These are a much healthier version of your store bought oatmeal chocolate chip cookie! Same delicious taste without all the sugar and processed white flour which are void of fiber and protein. I know you won't be able to stop at one.....and that's OK because you don't have to!

Makes 32-34 medium sized cookies

Ingredients:

2.5 cups gluten-free rolled oats

1 2/3 cups gluten-free all purpose flour (I used http://enjoylifefoods.com)

3/4 cup coconut sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp sea salt

1 cup chocolate chunks (I used http://enjoylifefoods.com)

2 eggs

1 cup melted coconut oil

1 cup creamy organic peanut butter (or any other nut butter or 1/2 tahini, 1/2 sunflower seed butter if you are nut-free)

1 tbsp vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a cookie baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix oil, peanut butter, eggs and vanilla until well combined.
  3. Add the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.  The dough might be crumbly but that’s OK.
  4. Mix in the chocolate chunks.
  5. Using your hands, clump together 2-3 tbsp of dough at a time and squeeze into a ball.  Place onto cookie sheet about 1″ apart and gently flatten (.5cm) with palm of your hand.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes.  Allow to cool completely before eating as they will crumble and fall apart (trust me!).  Be patient, prepare yourself a tea and then enjoy them!
