That is a long cookie title with a lot of delicious promises. But I guarantee, these cookies deliver!
In fact, I feel like I’ve been holding out on you. I’ve made these cookies 4 times in the past couple months for various events and they are unbelievably delicious. They are soft in the middle, with crispy edges, and a slight oat-y flavor. Not to mention peanut butter and chocolate. Be still my heart. Every time I’ve gotten accolades. cookie high-fives, and the infamous “I can’t believe these are gluten-free” comments. In fact, I made these cookies for a neighborhood get-together and told some friends eating them that they were gluten-free. One friend said “are you serious?!” and another neighborhood was like “no she’s joking of course.” Ha! No jokes here. Really gluten-free. And really delicious. You’ll have to taste to believe. I’ve used both regular and natural peanut butter in these with great results. They are also amazing with milk chocolate chips if that’s your thing. Yum!
You can freeze the unbaked dough and bake the cookies straight from the freezer. Just scoop out the dough balls and freeze on a plate lined with parchment paper. Transfer the dough balls to a freezer bag after they are frozen, then take out and bake as directed whenever you want a cookie. Just add 2 minutes or so to the baking time.
