Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

One of my favorite cookies of all time is the Monster Cookie. (Which I just realized I don't have posted here - we must eat them too fast to get pictures!) As I was scanning that recipe a couple years ago, considering converting it to something a celiac friend would be able to eat, I realized it was already a gluten free recipe without even trying to be.

There wasn't any flour in those cookies in the first place! This is a variation of that Monster Cookie recipe. Just slightly adapted, to make them both gluten and dairy free for a friend. Still absolutely delicious, simply use regular chocolate chips if dairy is not a concern.

(printable recipe)

2 eggs
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2/3 cup white sugar
1 1/3 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
3 cups old fashioned oatmeal
2/3 cup dark chocolate or semi sweet chocolate chips (use a vegan or soy chip if you want a casein free product)

Mix together all ingredients in the order listed. Place cookie mounds on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 12 minutes. Watch the first batch carefully though and adjust the baking time as necessary. Take care not to overbake these cookies. Cool on sheet for 1 minute and then remove to wire rack. Enjoy!

  1. I'm always on the hunt for good gluten free treats to make for a friend of mine. These look perfect and clearly do not need the flour! Do you use old fashioned or quick cooking oats?

    1. Hi Carrie, I tend to use whole oats for this recipe. I like the added texture. Quick ones work just as well, it simply makes for a slightly different cookie. Have a great day!

  5. These look amazing Mary! I want to quit my job run home and make them right now : ) Did you use natural (unsweetened) peanut butter or the old school Jiffy kind?

    1. Nothing but Jiffy for this kind of cookie. The natural stuff simply does not bake as well. Have a great night, Dagny!

  6. Oooh! Peanut Butter + Chocolate Chip Cookies = <3! I wanna have some! Thanks for sharing. I always want to thank people sharing their own recipes online because they help other people create and simplify their dilemmas in baking/cooking stuffs. Although I always want to remind them to take food safety as one of the important things in preparing food.

  7. You know, I must be the only person on the planet who doesn't like chocolate chip cookies... I'm kind of a purist when it comes to chocolate and for some reason, I'm just not a fan of the chocolate chip cookie. But this recipe intrigues me... I just may have to try it. And I know they will be eaten in my house, my boys are all chocolate chip fans. Thanks for sharing!

  8. No flour? Just curious. This would be a fantastic gluten free recipe if I bought gluten free oats (which is fairly easy to find) so I am definitely intrigued by this. YUM!

  10. And if you use egg substitute and the soy chips, it's also cholesterol free! What a wonderful recipe. We love oatmeal cookies here.

  11. Don't you love it when you have gluten-free recipes without having to change a thing? These cookies love great!

  12. Ok, so apparently I missed the giant bold print about them being gluten free. I am sometimes a little attention deficit Mary. ;)
