Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Several months ago, we started having issues with the site and the theme that makes it look pretty.  I’m at the point where I knew I needed a custom theme and I knew I had to search to find someone to do the work.  I love tinkering with it, but an absolute overhaul was out of my realm of expertise.  You know what they say, “I know just enough to be dangerous.”  Well, I started visiting other blogs (which I don’t do very often) and looking at designs and features and kept coming back to a company called Five J’s Design.  Well, I felt an instant connection being that I have a “J” of my own, but after a few emails with Joy, the owner and designer, I knew she was the right one for the job.  She was super quick, courteous, and was amazingly patient with my middle-of-the-process changes and knew all the right questions to ask.  The result, as you can see for yourself, is nothing short of amazing.  She maintained the same general feel of the site, but made it much easier to navigate and much more attractive.  And talk about being committed to her work… I had an issue last week where several things stopped working and the site started running incredibly slow.  I sent her a quick email to ask a question about hosting companies when she offered to jump right in and look around.  Several hours and a bunch of tweaking later, everything was working again and much faster, too!  I am forever grateful for her help and expertise.  If you’re looking to give your site a facelift, looking for graphic design services, e-book design services, or things like Blogger to WordPress migration, you should really shoot her an email.  She’s an amazing artist, knows all of the technical details, and is just fun to chat with.  I know you wont be disappointed with her and her work.

In fact, she sent me this recipe for her Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies that her family’s absolute favorite.  She said they don’t ever make any other type of cookies now that they know how good these are.  She said they often refer to them as “Da Bomb” or even just “Awesome Cookies.”  Now I know why.  Delicious they are.  You might think that phrases like flourless and gluten free mean taste free, trust me when I say these are some of the best cookies I have ever had!  They are crisp on the edges, gooey on the inside, and have the perfect combination of sweet and salty flavors.  If you ask me, those things make up the perfect cookie.  They are certainly a new favorite at our house and I bet they will be at yours, too!  Y’all enjoy!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies {Gluten Free}
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4 to 5 dozen
  • 3 cups peanut butter
  • 3 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1½ tablespoons vanilla
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and eggs and mix until smooth.
  2. In another bowl, toss the oats with the baking soda and salt.
  3. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet and then stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Place scoops of the dough (about 2 heaping tablespoons) onto a prepared baking sheet or one covered with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Bake 10 to 13 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies just begin to brown. Cool on a wire rack and keep in an airtight container.
I used a medium cookie scoop that holds about 2 tablespoons of batter.

  1. Stacey,
    I noticed that the prep time is 20 hours. Are we intended to refrigerate the dough prior to baking?

  2. combination of the three best yummy cookies….peanut butter, chocolate chip, and oatmeal. How can these go wrong?! 🙂

  3. Ah ok! LOL. Thanks. =D

  4. This is a recipe that is very similar to one on the back of Trader Joe’s Rolled Oats. Their’s makes approximately 48 cookies, is gluten-free and uses much less sugar, peanut butter, and eggs. Very, very tasty. I’m afraid your’s might be too sweet to me.

  5. I was treated to these delicious cookies yesterday when Stacey brought me some. I can testify that they are DELICIOUS! I love how thick and chewy they are! A good, filling cookie with some of my favorite ingredients. I *might* have had one for breakfast this morning 😉
    Hey, oats and peanut butter are protein!
    Thanks for a wonderful recipe that will be made often in my house!

  6. I have someone who is has celiac but is also allergic to peanuts. Will almond butter work?

  7. I substituted almond butter for peanut butter, and used dairy free chocolate chips for my daughter who is working on strengthening her immune system.. she loved the cookies and said they tasted like Tollhouse Cookies.. which is a high compliment. Be sure to use Gluten Free Oats! … and make your scoops smaller.. my first set of cookies using ” 2 heaping Tablespoons ” were way too big.. like 6″ across! But they were good.

    Wonderful cookies. I made them in 1 tbs scoops and they are perfect for little fingers and mouths. Thank you!

  9. The BEST gluten-free cookie recipe I have found in four years of searching! As a mom of a kid with dietary restrictions (no gluten or casein), it feels wonderful to be able to make a homemade treat such as this! Thank you so much for sharing this fabulous recipe!

    • Oh, Mary! I am so glad that a recipe her on has given you that chance to cook for your child! It just makes my day. I’m thrilled that you found it!


  11. How many do these make?

  12. These cookies sound like the perfect cookies for me and the grandkids. Thanks

    I finally made these yesterday. I overcooked them a little bit and they are still great. I halved the recipe as I didn’t want to make a bunch of cookies we didn’t like. I’ve tried other versions of a peanut butter & oatmeal cookie and I was always disappointed. I’ll be making these again soon but take them out sooner. Did you use light or dark brown sugar?

    • Awesome, Mark! So great to hear! I almost always use light brown sugar.

      • Just made another batch today and they were better than last time. Awesome and easy recipe. How do you get around the problem of the batter sticking to the scoop. I really have a hard time with it sticking to my hands and the scoop. What’s your trick?

        • It’s unfortunately part of it, I’m afraid. You can spray the scoop with a little nonstick cooking spray. That will help some. So glad to hear you’re getting some use out of this recipe, Mark!

  14. These are AMAZING!! My kids (both gluten free and non-gf) LOVED them!!! Big hit! Thank you!!!

  15. Made these this week for the first time…truly are delicious! Divided the above ingredients by 6 (except the egg) and got it done to exactly 1-dozen…perfect! 🙂
