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
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!
