Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies These have been a favorite cookie recipe while transitioning off of white flour and sugar. Luckily they are easy and quick to make and gluten free if you use gluten-free oats. Well, technically there is no such thing as gluten-free oats. They just don’t have the same gluten as found in wheat, barley and rye but they do have another form of gluten that can be a problem for some. See this article from the Gluten-Free Society here. If it is not a problem for you, you may enjoy this recipe.

While I love gluten-free cookies made with almond flour, whole grain oat flour is much cheaper. These cookies are really good. If you are wondering what to take to a gathering or to a friend, this could be the perfect recipe.
