Ingredients Needed to Make Gluten Free Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup granulated no-calorie sweetener (I used Truvia Baking Blend)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-1/4 cups quick oats (not instant)
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

How to Make Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Assemble your ingredients…

Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Alternatively line the cookie sheet with a silpat or parchment paper.

Mix the Cookie Dough…

In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the peanut butter, sweetener, baking soda, and brown sugar until well combined and creamy. Add the egg and vanilla and continue beating until the mixture is smooth.

Stir in the oats and the chocolate chips.

Form the Cookies and Place on Baking Sheet

Take level tablespoons of dough and roll it into 1-inch balls. Place on the cookie sheet and flatten the cookies by pressing down on the dough with a spatula or the bottom of a glass. 

Bake until the cookies are golden brown on the bottom but still slightly soft in the center, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer the cookies to wire racks and allow to cool completely. 

Recipe Notes, Additions and Substitutions

I love adding chocolate chips to these cookies but they’re optional. Feel free to substitute them with other additions such as: raisins, dried cranberries, white chocolate or butterscotch chips, or just leave them out. It’s your choice. Just remember to adjust your points if you are following Weight Watchers.
