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!
