Recipe Trader Sundays: Gluten-Free Monster Cookies
Posted Jan 10 2010 6:07pm
This recipe comes from Gluten Free Oats, a company that offers oats that are uncontaminated by any sources of gluten. You can find them in some retail locations or order them directly online.
I haven’t made these since Thanksgiving, but this is my son’s favorite cookie and I think we need to make them again very soon. I’ve mentioned them before but never actually posted the recipe, so here it is.
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, room temperature*
1 tsp gf vanilla
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup peanut butter
3 cups gf rolled oats
6 ounces gf chocolate chips or M&Ms*
1/2 cup gf sunflower seeds or chopped walnuts, optional
*To make this recipe casein free, use a butter substitute such as Earth Balance and a gfcf version of either chocolate chips (we like Enjoy Life brand) or M&Ms.
Preheat oven at 350º.
Beat sugar, brown sugar and butter until creamy. Add eggs, vanilla and baking soda and mix well. Add peanut butter and mix. Stir in oats, chocolate chips and nuts. Place teaspoon full of dough on a lightly greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly brown around edges.
We all love these! This is truly a recipe that you could make for anyone and they wouldn’t notice that it was adapted for a special diet. And if you’re not on a GFCF diet, you could just use regular oats, butter and chocolate chips for a great treat.
