🎶"C" is for Cookie, that’s good enough for me🎶 especially when it’s a Flourless Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie!
Yield: 20-30 Cookies
2/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 large egg
1 cup natural peanut butter at room temperature
6 Tablespoons packed light brown sugar
½ cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
In a medium bowl, toss the oats, cinnamon, and baking soda together. Set aside. In a medium bowl, beat the egg. Mix in the peanut butter and brown sugar with a large rubber spatula until combined. Pour in the dry ingredients and slowly mix until everything is combined. Depending how thick and/or cold your peanut butter is, you may need to use your hands. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Chill the cookie dough for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line two large baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Scoop the dough, about 1 to 1.5 Tablespoons each, onto prepared baking sheet. (Note: you may need to shape these into balls using your hands) Bake two batches. Gently press down on the dough mounds with the back of a spoon to slightly flatten each cookie.
For soft chewy cookies bake for 9 to 10 minutes. The cookies will look very soft and underbaked, but that’s ok. For crispy cookies, bake for up to 12 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Cookies stay fresh stored covered at room temperature for up to 7 days, if they last that long! Cookies freeze well, up to 3 months.
