Famous Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Famous Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies created by Rita1652

John was hinting for oatmeal cookies and I came across Katzen's Recipe #360115 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.

    Yes, the recipe as is, when using white flour, produces nothing but dry crumbs, however I believe the problem occurs because white flour is MUCH dryer than an oiler almond meal; the cookie mixture was WAY too dry. However I'm too thrifty to throw out good food so I did what I could to save them. I added more coconut oil (about another 1/2 cup) and about 1/4 cup of water - I didn't measure the water carefully and just kept adding and blending until the mixture finally held together. So, my guess is that when using WHITE FLOUR, the measure should be reduced by at least 1/2 cup. And, even then, it might require some water. Oh, and the bake time needs to be increased for white flour also to a minimum of 15 minutes. I plan to keep this recipe on hand and try it again and will then post my results with the actual measurements to produce a good cookie dough.

    These are really great, I made them a few times and have swapped the chocolate chips with peanuts and cut the sugar by 1/2. Make sure to press them flat with a fork if you cut the sugar as they will not flatten on their own.

    There are several reviews that say these cookies are crumbly, I made them with only one cup of brown sugar and no white. Add 1/2 teaspoon extra vanilla. They are awesome.

    These were great. Not crumbly at all. I did leave out most of the white sugar and they were still sweet.
