Gluten-free Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Holy geez! I'm on such a PB craving lately. I think that I dream about it. Must be something with the oncoming fall weather, because I'm wanting PB sauce on everything. Finally, I decided that some peanut butter cookies were in order. I found a recipe for flourless peanut butter cookies, but it used a TON of white sugar, and nothing else, and that's simply not my style. So, I dressed it up a bit to make it a little less sweet and a little more diet friendly to come up with this recipe! And so awesome that it's GF!!!

First, the ingredients:

1 cup natural peanut butter, crunchy or smooth (I used Trader Joe's salted crunchy natural)
1 extra large egg
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup GF old-fashioned oats (I used Bob's Red Mill)
1 tsp GF baking powder (Rumsford and Clabber Girl are both GF)

Yield is about 8 cookies, so double or triple, if desired.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

While the oven is heating, mix all ingredients in a medium bowl until well blended.

After the ingredients are well-mixed, using a large spoon, ladle them onto a cookie sheet.

Bake for 12 minutes, or until the tops are slightly dark. Allow to cool for one minute, then enjoy! These also keep awesome in the fridge!

I've been on a cookie kick lately, so I may give these a try! I like the idea of oats and pb. One of my favorite cookies is the pb/choc/oats no bakes. Amazing!
