I'm a cookie kind of gal. Some people like fancy desserts but cookies will do just fine for me thanks. Don't get me wrong I like a fancy dessert every now and then but the humble cookie is what I really enjoy.
These cookies are soft and chewy with great peanut butter flavour. Truth be told, I much prefer peanut butter chocolate chip cookies over regular chocolate chip cookies. Firstly, I love pb and secondly, I don't like eating bites of regular chocolate chip cookies that don't have any chocolate chips. With pb cookies the whole cookie is tasty not just the parts with chocolate chips.
Plus, these cookies are made with oat flour which helps to give that chewier texture. Who doesn't like a chewy cookie, even if it's just slightly chewy? I love to eat peanut butter cookies that are made with heartier flours, how about you?
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with Oat Flour
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup cane sugar
1 heaping tbsp molasses
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup oat flour (use gluten free oats for gf)
1 tsp baking soda
¼ cup Silk Coffee Creamer (or any non-dairy milk)
1/3 cup chocolate chips or more if you prefer
Preheat the oven to 350˚ F and line a baking sheet with parchment or a silpat.
Mix the sugar and molasses together in a large bowl until the molasses is well incorporated within the sugar. Next, add the peanut butter and cream the sugar and pb with electric beaters. Add the vanilla and beat a little more. Add the oat flour and mix to combine; it can get a little messy with beaters so if you have a strong arm you might want to abandon them at this point. Add the non-dairy milk of your choice and chocolate chips until just combined.
Roll the dough into small balls and flatten in the palm of your hand. Place them ½ inch apart on the sheet and bake for 8-10 mins. After a few minutes remove them baking sheet and place on a cookie rack.
