Peanut Butter Chocolate Oat Cookies (flourless + butterless)

Sundays are special. Sundays by definition are relaxing. Sundays are meant for baking cookies.

After Pilates I got home and got to work on these cookies. It was the perfect day to make these cookies, found at The Little Red House. Why? Her blog post, that went included this cookie recipe resonated with me. Work hard, exercise and eat well. Repeat and treat yourself!

Since detoxing in early January, M and I have changed our lifestyle, eating style and it seems to be working as we are feeling better and have more energy. To curb the sweet tooth during the work week, I’ve been trying to find recipes that use a little less sugar, butter, white flour, or chocolate.

These flourless, butterless cookies fit the bill not to mention the recipe included peanut butter, a favorite of both of ours. We buy our peanut butter in Boston. Does that mean we are crazy? Teddie Old Fashioned All Natural Peanut Butter is made right outside of Boston, MA. So, whenever we are there we try to pick up 5-8 jars. M is likes the super crunchy, while I’m partial to the old-fashioned with flaxseed. Now that you all are convinced we are super dorks or crazy…enjoy these yummy cookies (the texture reminds me of almond macaroons).

  1. DELISH! I made half the recipe and made them by hand (rather than using a hand blender). I think we ended up with 8 or 10. I pulled them at 11 mins and they were still VERY gooey. I added an extra 5 minutes and they were perfect. Soft and unlike other PB cookies they didn’t fall apart. Thank you! Thank you for this awesome recipe!!
