Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


Is it possible to have the goodness of three cookie recipes in one? Oh yes!

A healthy recipe that’s also gluten free? Yes!

With a pinch of salt on top to counter the sweetness? Yes! Yes! Yes!


Crunchy on the outside – chewy on the inside!

This recipe is a must make.

Guiltless oatmeal, peanut butter, chocolate chip cookies.

I’ve been struggling with this gluten free stuff ever since my daughter was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. It’s been a challenge in finding delicious recipes without sacrificing texture and flavor.

I find the pre-made cookies and baked goods are dry and flavorless. When I do find a good recipe and hear her singing in the kitchen – I know I have a winner!


It’s loaded with chocolate…


and peanut butter goodness.


all rolled into one!


Kissed with a sprinkle of salt :)


These cookies freeze well – if they last that long!

    These look delicious. I have been trying out Gluten Recipes and this one looks amazing. I am going to try to whip up a batch tonight. Thanks for sharing.

    This is probably an odd question, but here goes. What if I wanted to make these not gluten free? How much all purpose flour, or whole wheat flour would be used in place of the gluten free stuff?

    • A Kitchen Muse on said:

      You would use the same amount of flour – all purpose or whole wheat – in replacement of the gluten free. Enjoy!

  5. This is my first time baking gluten-free, and while these tasted fantastic, they turned out very crumbly. They were just falling apart. Is this normal? I did lessen the sugar to 1/2 cup brown and 1/2 organic cane sugar. And I also used all natural peanut butter so I’m not sure if those are things that would have factored into the consistence. The other issue was with refrigerating the batter. When I took it out of the fridge to use the next day, it was ROCK hard. So impossible to scoop out. Any thoughts??

    • A Kitchen Muse on said:

      They are a drier cookie but shouldn’t be that dry. Much of it depends on the kind of flour you use. I would suggest adding more peanut butter, a little less flour and let the batter sit out to warm up before scooping. Let me know how they turn out. Baking gluten free is a new adventure for me and am learning as I go so I welcome feedback! Have a lovely day!
