Peanut Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these yummy cookies yesterday. They are made without flour and if you use oatmeal instead of whole grains cereal, you will make them gluten free. Today when I checked, there were only 2 left.  I’m hiding them since there are 3 boys and I wouldn't want anyone to get their feelings hurts.  Guess where they can be found.  Winking smile  These made just shy of 3 dozen…you can make them a little smaller if you need more.  That’s probably a good idea if you have hungry cookie monsters like I do.  I also have another, no flour, Peanut Butter Cookies I made earlier this year that my boys also gobbled up.  Yep, they love peanut butter!  Make some of these thin, chewy, peanutty, chocolaty cookies for your cookie monsters and a little extra for yourself.  You’ll be glad you did.    <3 and hugs!

Peanut Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup extra crunchy peanut butter
1 cup dark brown brown sugar, make your own brown sugar
1/2 cup whole grain hot cereal, or quick oatmeal, uncooked….make instant oatmeal
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F  Stir baking soda in with sugar.  Mix peanut butter and with sugar until incorporated.  I used a fork, you can use a mixer to make it easier.  Stir in beaten egg.  Add  dry cereal stir well.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Roll into walnut size balls, place on ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake for 8-10 minutes until turning brown around the edges.  Take out of oven when done.  They will be soft.   Let sit on cookie sheet for 1 – 2  minutes.  Transfer to cooling racks.  Enjoy!
