Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 flax eggs 2 Tablespoons ground flax, 6 Tablespoons water
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cup gluten free flour Bob’s Red Mill!
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips optional for drizzle topping

Instructions

  • Create flax eggs – mix ground flax seed and water in a bowl and let rest 10 minutes, or until gelatinous.
  • In a small pan, melt together coconut oil and peanut butter, stirring until well-combined.
  • Pour the coconut oil and peanut butter mixture into a large mixing bowl. Set aside and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Add flax eggs, brown sugar, cane sugar, and vanilla. Whisk to combine.
  • Add oats, flour, and baking soda and mix well.
  • Line a baking sheet (or two!) with parchment. Shape the dough into balls about 2 Tablespoons in size and arrange on the baking sheet.
  • Cover with foil or cling wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350º and bake cookies for 25-30 minutes.
  • While they are cooling, you’ll have time to melt your chocolate. I used a double-boiler to heat chocolate chips over the stove, but you could certainly melt them in the microwave. Once melted, drizzle over top of the cookies and enjoy!
