John was hinting for oatmeal cookies and I came across Katzen's Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies recipe and thought why not tweak it to make it with oatmeal and gluten free and this is what I came up with. Thanks Katzen. ;) FYI almond flour can be made by simply processing raw almonds in the blender until they have turned into fine crumbs. Don’t over blend, otherwise you’ll make almond butter! It usually takes 5 second pulses for about 20 times.
- 2 1⁄2 cups almond flour (gluten free) or 2 1⁄2 cups almond meal or 2 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup coconut oil, organic softened not melted
- 1 cup smooth peanut butter or 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Heat oven to 350°F.
- Mix flour, oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. Beat coconut oil, peanut butter and sugars in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy.
- Blend in eggs and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well after each addition.
- Fold in Chocolate chips.
- Roll into tablespoonful size balls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto greased baking sheets. Sprinkle with sugar if desired. Flatten each, in criss-cross pattern, with tines of fork.
- Bake for 10 minute or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets 5 minutes; transfer to wire racks. Cool completely.
These are terrible. Did anyone bother to even try them before giving them 4 stars? The batter is so crumbly it is difficult to shape the cookies accordingly. The taste once baked is no different than a dry, crumbly biscuit. These get zero stars.
The dough tastes very good but it is too crummy to form cookies.
Not sure if I did something wrong here. I used the flour option, and ended up with something so dry and crumbly, I couldn't form it into cookies even after I added more coconut oil. I finally put it on top of some blueberries and peaches as a fruit buckle. Tastes good, just dry and crumbly!
