If you don’t know by now, I love my chocolate. So naturally, I made sure that there was chocolate involved too when working on my new cookie recipe. These oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips tick all the boxes for me.
Not only are they the easiest thing to make, but they also contain another of my favourite ingredients: peanut butter. I love this stuff so much, I could literally sit and eat it straight from the jar! Anyone else with me? I know you’re out there, come on, own up!
And if you don’t like peanut butter straight, combining it with another favourite is pretty magical. Like in these cupcakes or even my PB&J cake pops. With this in mind, peanut butter and chocolate had to happen, of course!
So now, these oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips are not only awesome for being flourless and dairy-free (helpful when there’s none to be found in the shops!), but they contain what is possibly the most awesome flavour combination on the planet!
Plus, they take such little time and effort to put together, you almost have no excuse for NOT making them!
You’re welcome 😉
Of course, you can use any nut butter you like, if you prefer another one go for it! You can also swap out the oats for gluten-free oats if you wish too, the recipe will work fine.
You can also substitute the chocolate chips for dairy free/not alternatives, as well as raisins or nuts if you prefer. I have tried this recipe with all different additions, including different types of chocolate chips. My favourite, however, will forever be the milk chocolate chips over anything else.
Happy baking, friends!
