Thanks for sharing!

These no flour cookies are full of peanut butter, oatmeal and chocolate chips. It makes a big batch, but you can freeze some dough for cookies on demand later!

    These are my go-to drop cookies.  They are always go over really well.  It is a big batch, so be prepared to share.  They are chewy, peanut butter-y and full of oatmeal goodness.  I love baking them in big soft cookies, but they are also good as smaller two bite cookies.

These thick chewy cookies are a perfect treat.  They have been a favorite for many years. 

I originally shared the recipe back in 2015, so I thought it was high time to freshen it up and share it again.  I made a batch and shared most of them at a bake sale, so I took the time to spiff things up.

One buyer ate one within earshot and was very excited about how good they were. There is nothing like the affirmative reaction of someone enjoying your food.

The original post

One of Little Dudes’s daycare ladies is having a birthday, and I wanted to make something peanut butter for her.  She loves peanut butter pie, but that is hard to share with the littles.

Cookies are so much easier to give to a dozen hungry tikes! I knew this would be the perfect thing.  I made enough for them and some for the kids.

The rest of the batch went in the freezer for later.  Now we’ll just see how long that lasts!

All you have to do is mix everything together and scoop the dough on a cookie sheet. 

Then bake them until they just barely start to brown around the edges. A quick trip to the oven and you are ready to enjoy a warm and gooey cookie.

Actually promise me you’ll enjoy a warm cookie. They are extra soft and tasty, just don’t burn yourself! 

Freeze whatever dough is left for more cookies later. Just scoop the dough onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet.

Freeze the balls of dough for several hours then move them to a freezer bag and toss it back in the freezer. You can pull out as many balls of dough as you’d like later and bake them up.

You can bake them frozen, just add a minute or so to the bake time. Fresh cookies ready at a moment’s notice!  

More great cookies that are loaded with peanut butter:

MiMi’s Monster Cookies are very similar to these but include candy coated chocolate candies as well. They are another long time favorite of everyone in our family. 

Peanut Butter Cut-Out Cookies are rolled and cut out in fun shapes like sugar cookies. Top them with royal icing for a pretty and fun treat.

Triple Peanut Butter Cookies are loaded with peanut butter goodness.  They don’t have oatmeal, but they do have great chew and tons of goodies!

Chewy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are the best of both worlds. They are part peanut butter cookie and part chocolate chip cookie for a totally delicious treat.

I love cookies with No flour! In fact, I’m making Monster cookies today! These look wonderful. Have a beautiful day!

These look and sound so delicious, Carlee! Often the no-flour peanut butter cookies are a little flat. Yours are so thick and chewy! My daughter is gluten free and it will be fun to bake something we can all enjoy! I agree that a stash of frozen cookie dough for cookies at a moments notice, is the best! :)

Thank you, Wendy! I suppose there is enough oatmeal in them to make them stand tall and proud. Now if only I had the will power to make the freezer stash last longer!

I've never tried cakes or cookies with the convection. I will try these and see how they work out. The wind is to blow this weekend so no outdoor gardening for me. Baking is my other option - oh well I could clean house. Maybe.

Wishes for tasty dishes, Linda

We are supposed to get a fair amount of rain this weekend, so I have Easter baking for the blog on the agenda! If you turn on the convection, you just have to keep a close eye because it seems like they brown more quickly. But, I like that you can get crispy edges and soft centers if you get it timed right.
