Crunchy Almond Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

17 Jul

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats (Bob’s Mills Gluten Free Rolled Oats)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Truvia(Stevia)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup slivered  raw almonds (chopped)  
  • 1/2 cup Non-dairy Semi-Sweet Mini  Chocolate Chips (Enjoy Life Mini chips

 

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

    In a small bowl, whisk together oats, baking powder, and salt.

    In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together almond butter with chopped slivered almonds, brown sugar, and truvia until well combined, about 2 minutes.

    Add  egg and vanilla and beat to combine. Slowly add  in the  oat mixture. Gently mix or fold in the Non-dairy Semi-Sweet Mini  Chocolate Chips. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

  2. Portion out dough by using a rounded tablespoon, or a small scoop or I just eyeball them by slicing the cookie dough with a knife so they are all the same size. Then lightly rolling each portion of dough together in your hands to create a smooth ball. Place balls on baking sheet and pat down each cookie to flatten out the cookie. Bake just until brown at the edges about 15 minutes, these cookies will be soft right out of the oven.  Let cool completely on a cookie rack and the cookies will harden and become crunchy. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

    Enjoy!!!!

    Didn’t know there is gluten in oatmeal. Can I use quick oats? Love almond butter and almonds. To make 1/2 recipe how many packets of Stevia?

      Hi Debbie …..Normally Pure oatmeal does not contain gluten however there can be cross-contamination for instance Quaker Oats states on its website that it cannot guarantee its oatmeal is gluten-free. I am a big fan of Bob’s Red Mill rolled oats they are certified gluten free. Food for thought you can freeze this dough too and just portion out how many cookies you want to bake at a time …..I also buy the baking Trivia with a pour spout not packaged so to make half just cut the recipe in half and use 1/4 cup of stevia.

      Recipe cut in half …

      1/4 cup + 2 tbsp old fashioned oats (Bob’s Mills Gluten Free Rolled Oats)
      1/2 teaspoon baking powder
      1/4 teaspoon salt
      1/2 cup almond butter
      1/4 cup light brown sugar
      1/4 cup Truvia(Stevia)
      1/2 egg
      1/2 teaspoon vanilla
      2 tbsp slivered raw almonds (chopped)
      1/4 cup Non-dairy Semi-Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips (Enjoy Life Mini chips)

      Hope this helps …Enjoy !!!!
