Update 9/14/2011: I have sense been diagnosed with Celiac Disease so tried the cookie using different gluten free flour mixes with great results and have altered other parts of the recipe. I have used 1 cup of Pamela’s Gluten Free Bread Mix and 1 cup of Bob Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour. This is a great starter recipe for any cookie. Whether you want a chocolate chip, peanut butter, chocolate mint, or oatmeal raisin cookie, have fun with it and put whatever extra�s you feel like. The first 9 ingredients are the base for the cookie. For a more cake like cookie only add ½ cup of rolled oats or leave out the oats and add ½ cup more flour.

Very yummy!!! I agree with another comment that it's more like a scone than a cookie. I didn't use peanut butter. I had a wonderful granola mix that has dark chocolate and dried raspberries, so I added just a little bit of the peanut butter chips. The smell and taste are amazing! Definitely will change this up and try different things. My mix was not dry at all; I did use agave-not sure if that makes a difference.
