Flourless Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve only just recently started getting into Pinterest.  Yes, I know: for someone like me who basically lives on the internet, I am woefully behind the times.  Despite this, though, I’ve dived right into it and am starting to find it really useful!  For example, I now have an entire board devoted to cookies.  Cookies like this one:

Cookiiiiiiiiies.

Despite me not making them terribly often, I find cookies delightfully fun to bake.  Unlike a cake there’s minimal cleaning afterwards, and sometimes you don’t even need a mixer!  Additionally, for small individual bite-sized bits of dessert, there’s a lot of creative things you can do with them.  There’s really nothing to dislike.

These cookies were one of the first recipes I pinned.  Not only do I love these flavors (see my Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Oat Bars), but they’re also flour-less, which is a neat little twist.  I don’t need my diet to be gluten-free and I’m not a very serious subscriber to the paleo diet, but it’s always interesting to try something a little different anyway.

Now for some reason my cookies didn’t turn out nearly as pretty as all the other pictures I saw.  I’m not entirely sure what I did differently (for once I didn’t cut any corners – there weren’t enough steps to even do such a thing!), but rather than them being smooth-looking they turned out pretty lumpy.  Additionally the edges around my cookies all turned out a little crispy; without any flour, there wasn’t really anything to absorb the egg and sugar mixture, making it leak out a little and crisp up in the oven.  Don’t get me wrong: they’re still delicious, they’re just not as good-looking as I was hoping (looks aren’t everything, amirite?).

Anyhoo, suffice it to say that these cookies are great, and can be moved from “flourless” to straight-up gluten free depending on the type of oats you use!  They’re soft, sweet, and chewy, and if dropped correctly (“dropped” as in “drop-cookie”) they can be nice’n’bite sized.  Basically, a tasty tasty recipe.  Give it a try!

Formerly of both n00bcakes and !Blog, the two magically become one on Spatialdrift; expect some lazy baking and serious nerditude. Also, I love semicolons.

    • I love experiments that still taste great, even if they didn’t turn out the way you’d intended. 🙂

  1. I have not ever looked at Pinterest, except to see who’s pinning my stuff. They’ve changed their setup now though so I can’t even look at that.

    Cooookies! I was just thinking about them yesterday. But I was also thinking about how hot it gets in here with the oven on – – early morning cookies?!

    • Yeah, turning on my oven at all this summer has been a bit of a chore, but frankly I always deign cookies (or whatever else I tend to make) worth the excess heat. Especially cookies. Because cookies.
