Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (Vegan and Gluten Free)

I'm so excited because I figured out a vegan and gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipe that I wouldn't only make for little Sean... I'd make these for anyone, anytime. They are scrumptious!  

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies 
(Vegan and Gluten Free)


1/2 cup peanut butter (salted creamy Adams)
½ cup Spectrum shortening with smidgen of Earth Balance
1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup packed 
brown sugar
2 single serve cups 
unsweetened applesauce (or ¾ cup)
1 teaspoon 
1 cup 
oat flour
1 cup almond meal
1 cup 
old-fashioned oatmeal
1 teaspoon 
baking soda
1/4 teaspoon 
3/4 cup 
chocolate chips (more or less to taste)


Cream together the 
shortening, Earth Balance, peanut butter, and sugars.  Add the applesauce and vanilla, and beat until fluffy.  In a separate bowl sift together the flour and almond meal, baking soda, and salt.  Combine with the oatmeal.  Mix the flour mixture into the liquid mixture about 1/2 cup at a time.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Cover and chill in the refrigerator for a couple hours.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or use baking spray).  Drop spoons of the cookie dough onto the sheet, about 2 inches apart.  Bake for 12 minutes, transfer to a wire rack to cool, and eat!  Makes roughly three dozen cookies.
