Gluten and Dairy Free Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Cookies
Serves: Approximately 36 cookies
 
Ingredients
  • Hand mixer (like this)
  • Cookie sheet (this one is great)
  • 1 cup organic vegetable shortening (this is a great shortening that is non-GMO, orangutan safe)
  • 1 ½ cup organic coconut palm sugar (we love this coconut sugar because you get the most bang for your buck)
  • 1 cup organic peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs, pastured and/or organic if you can
  • 1 cup gluten free oat flour (this is a great brand)
  • 2 tsp aluminum free baking soda (like this)
  • 1 tsp unrefined sea salt (our fav. unrefined sea salt)
  • 1 cup gluten free quick cooking oats (this GF quick cooking oats is what we use)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, coconut sugar and peanut butter until smooth.
  3. Beat in the eggs one at a time until well blended.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir the dry mixture into the creamed mixture.
  5. Mix in the oats just until combined.
  6. Using your hands, roll the cookie dough into balls (approx. size of a ping-pong ball). Place evenly spaced onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until light brown.
  8. Cool and store in an airtight container.
