I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who didn’t like chocolate chip cookies.
This recipe is one of the easiest chocolate chip cookie recipes ever (as you can see in the video below.)
While I have made many different versions of this classic cookie, this is my first recipe that I made to be flourless.
These flourless peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are thick, chewy, gluten free, and dairy free!
You would never know by tasting these cookies that they are healthy!
While I personally don’t have a gluten intolerance, there are many people that do, as well as those who just wish to avoid flour as much as possible.
I have nothing against baking with whole wheat flour, but I wanted to make a healthy version of this cookie for all of my gluten free readers to enjoy.
My mom is gluten intolerant and these are her absolute favorite cookies to make to curb her sweet tooth.
The texture is really satisfying you feel like you’re eating just a regular cookie!
These cookies are made with NO flour or dairy, and are naturally sweetened.
While this recipe calls for maple syrup, some readers in the comments below have substituted honey for great results.
I personally use maple syrup and honey interchangeably, so feel free to use whichever one you have on hand!
The only sweetener that I cannot recommend for sure is anything powdered as I have not tried it. If you try this recipe with normal sugar please let me know how it turns out in the comments!
I love how light these taste. They are chewy and sweet and the texture isn’t exactly like normal cookies (obviously), but it is addictive!
I had a hard time stopping eating these!
I made these cookies for my mom (who avoids wheat because of a slight gluten intolerance), and she loved them!
She was so excited to be able to eat cookies again that didn’t require fancy instructions or a special gluten free flour blend.
I feel like most gluten free flours can be finicky to work with, so I bypassed flour altogether for this recipe.
Try these flourless peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for a way healthier cookie with all of the flavor that you will love!
