I am really pleased with my latest creation. I wanted to make a cookie that satisfied our sweet tooth without refined sugar, wheat or dairy products. These PB Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies turned out amazing! Everyone loved them.
You can easily substitute almond butter for the regular peanut butter, for those with peanut allergies. I even think that crunchy nut butter would be great, too. The flavor sort of reminds me of a no-bake cookie (one of my childhood favorites), except these are MUCH healthier! I like them best after they have cooled and set.
Warning: This batter is so delicious that they may not make it to the oven….
