Too bad they aren’t low cal/fat!! :)

An alternative is the following recipe (I think it was originally from the Pampered Chef):

1 cup of peanutbutter
1 cup of sugar
1 egg

Obviously, the recipe can be doubled, and adapted by adding extra ingredients such as chocolate chips. I have also made it substituting brown sugar for white sugar, and making it into peanutbutter chocolate chip bars instead of cookies. My brother and father, who both have Celiac disease, love this recipe!

I was brought up eating these and they are yummy! And then when I tried a peanut butter cookie made with flour for the first time…Yuck! You can’t taste the peanut butter in those…especially after eating these. I might have to make some this weekend!! Thanks for sharing and bringing back those yummy childhood memories! :)

Any suggestions on making something similar without peanut butter. I am looking for an easy cookie recipe for my 3 yr old with a pnut allergy? Thanks!

I made these last week only no soda or salt, but I added vanilla instead. They were delicious! I love being able to make gluten free foods for my Mom without having to go to the store for special ingredients.

I’m glad you enjoyed them. Vanilla sounds like a yummy addition!

Is oat flour gluten free? I use it in muffins.

Oat flour is not gluten free unless specifically labeled so.
