• Flourless Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

    April 6, 2011

    Earlier this afternoon, I felt like the Cookie Monster. I needed cookies in a bad way, and I knew nothing else would satisfy my craving. So, I whipped up a small batch of Flourless Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies. They did the trick, and I feel better now. Thank goodness.

    What type of rolled oats did you use? Old Fashioned? Quick oats?

    Did you use regular peanut butter or all natural? Just wondering if it would make a difference.

    I’ve never been brave enough to try making cookies without flour, but I have to admit, these look great :-)

    I made these last night and they were fabulous!! I threw some carob chips in half the batch too, so naturally I HAD to try both (twice?). Thanks!!

    I love that this recipe makes a smaller batch. I only have myself to cook/bake for and it is not idea for me to have lots of cookies left over, but with your recipe, it is just enough to satisfy the craving.

    I am going to try these, thanks!

    @kathy kelly: No, sorry. But, you could probably figure out an estimate using one of those calorie calculators online.

    What is the nutrition analysis for these cookies (Flour-less P-nut butter)
    please send privately to my e address because I don’t know if I will find this place again. thanks

    I used this website: http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php

    These came out to 106 calories per cookie if your recipe makes 12. I am dieting right now so they make the perfect treat! (I am baking them now for the second week in a row.)

    Yum!! I just made these but instead of butter I used coconut oil and added chocolate chips, slivered almonds and coconut flakes. So good I can’t stop eating them :)

    These are great! The small batch size, the ease, and the endless possibilities for substitutions make this my instant new favorite.
    I added shredded coconut and dried cranberries to my first batch. I’ll have to ration them out to myself or I’ll eat the entire batch by midnight!
    Thanks!

    I made these and they are sooo good. My husband even liked them which is a shocker. I used honey instead of sugar, coconut oil instead of butter, whipped peanut butter, and a little extra oatmeal. sooo good!

    I just made these with Nutella instead of peanut butter, and subbed brown sugar for regular white–and they are to dieeee for. Delicious!! :) Thanks for the yummy recipe (and satisfying *my* cookie monster craving, hah).

    These look great, but for people with celiac disease they would have to be made with pure oats – oat flakes from the grocery shelf are *not* gluten-free.

    Very good, love the small amount of butter and sugar. I used more PB ( 1/3 c) I’m partial to PB, especially Peanut Butter & co. I used a bit cinnamon raisin swirl and the rest crunch time. I also added currants. Delish everyone I’ve passed em’ on to has been impressed. Easy one bowl bake and shake it off recipe. Thank you for sharing.

    I’ve made these several times this summer. Tonight I tried something a little different. Unsweetened applesauce instead of butter and added shredded coconut (based on one of your recent posts). YUMMY!!!!!

    I needed to make a flourless oatmeal cookie for my brother’s birthday and I was worried. I didn’t have time or supplies to make multiple batches of cookies. These turned out perfect. I wasn’t a fan of them hot but the next day….well lets just say I wasn’t a peanut butter cookie monster until after I tried these. Making a batch just for me right now. Thank you.

    they are very good, not too sweet and take no time to make. I added a bit more oats than called for (1.5 cup), switched the white sugar for honey and added about 1/4 cup of raisins. Yummy! We don’t taste the peanut butter too much, maybe next time I will put half a cup. Thanks for the recipe!

    I used organic raw almond butter with sea salt in exchange for peanut butter and they came out amazing! Will try also swapping the butter for organic unsweetened applesauce or organic coconut oil and swapping the sugar for organic wild honey next time! :-D May even roll in some raw brown sugar crystals! :)
