Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

IMG_3286

In case you haven’t noticed, I do a lot of cooking and baking for my sweet little family. I’m always trying new recipes but this one I came upon quite by accident. I was going to make some Snickerdoodles, which is a family favorite, but did not have one of the ingredients. I had just bought a bag of Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Rolled Oats and thought maybe I could make oatmeal cookies with it and then I could enjoy them too. Since I’m the only gluten free person in my household I don’t always get to eat the yummy stuff I bake. On the back of the bag was a recipe for Oatmeal cookies that I thought looked good, so I gave it a try. Boy, am Iย  glad I did. These cookies are soooooooo yummy!!! I’ve never really had a cookie like this before, it’s like an Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie but then you add some peanut butter and some walnuts and that little twist creates a cookie that is so delicious and tasty. Right out of the oven they are unbelievable, the chocolate chips are warm and melted, the oatmeal is soft, the peanut flavor is just right and then the crunch from the walnuts: heavenly. Gluten free or not these cookies are totally worth a try.

Here are the Trader Joe’s Rolled Oats that you’ll need.

On the back of the bag is the recipe but I’ll have the recipe for you to print at the end of this post.

The recipe is very easy to follow especially when I used my my pink Kitchen Aid mixer, I just love that thing.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease your cookie sheet.

In a large bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar and butter and beat until creamy. Start slow with the beating otherwise it will get all over the place because it’s a lot of dry ingredients.

The batter will look a little dry but that’s okay, it suppose to.

After mixing, I always hand mix the batter to make sure I get all the ingredients from the bottom of the bowl.

This is exactly the consistency you’ll be looking for.

Place a teaspoon full of dough about 2 inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Put them on a rack to cool, but make sure you try a few when they’re warm because they are amazing. Makes approximately 48 cookies.

These cookies are such a treat if you have to eat gluten free. I really miss eating some of the cookies that I make so this is such a great find, gluten free or not they are wonderful.

Store them in an air tight container and they’ll last for days, unless you eat them sooner and believe me you will.

Nothing like cookies and milk.
