Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I remember in middle school I would bake the oatmeal cookies on the lid of the Quaker Oats container religiously! Probably 2-3x a week. They were perfectly chewy, soft on the inside, and simply melted in your mouth. My sister and I were craving oatmeal cookies the other night, so what better decision than to whip up a batch of Quaker Oat inspired cookies. However, I followed the recipe very loosely and made some adjustments based on what we had, what was vegan, and altered it to make it a bit more healthier (because that’s just how I roll).

So here we are. The perfect vegan and gluten-free oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe inspired by Quaker Oats.

They contain healthier ingredients than the original recipe and in my opinion are so much more delicious. Instead of regular all-purpose flour I opted for almond flour which added the perfect nutty flavor and chewy texture! Also subbed out the brown sugar for coconut sugar, which is always my go-to refined sugar replacement. I also replaced the vegan butter with peanut butter which adds such a rich and nutty flavor which I love and think you will love too.

    okay WOW. sooooo good!! they were gone in two days. I love all your recipes but these cookies were exceptionally good. this might be a silly question but do you think these and your other desserts/baked goods would keep well in the freezer?
