Peanut Free Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time8 mins
Servings: 18 small cookies
- 1 c Wowbutter or your favourite nutbutter
- ½ c + 2 T old fashioned oats
- ½ c dark chocolate chips
- 2 T honey
- 4 T light brown sugar, lightly packed
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 large egg
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ⅛ tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 350°
In a medium sized bowl stir together the Wowbutter, honey, and brown sugar.
Add in the oats, salt, baking soda, and vanilla extract. Stir well.
In a separate bowl lightly beat the egg and then add it to the mixture.
Stir in desired add-ins (dark chocolate chips, raisins, craisins, etc.)
The mixture will be thick and hard to stir. Continue stirring until combined and then use a cookie scoop to scoop out the dough. Press the dough very tightly in the cookie scoop to form the balls. Without a cookie scoop these tend to crumble.
If not using a cookie scoop you will have to work with the dough a little bit more by squeezing it into a ball.
Form the balls onto a cookie sheet and bake for 7-9 minutes.
Watch the cookies closely and remove when the bottom barely starts to brown even if they don't look completely done (they cook more as they cool).
