peanut butter gluten free cookies  (17)

Our family isn’t gluten free, but we have some very good friends that are.  Sister Darling (we call people that we go to church with Brother and Sister) is a fabulous cook, and Hannah who practically lives at the Darling’s house, has been begging me to get this recipe from Sister Darling so we could make these wonderful cookies ourselves.  I finally got the recipe and Hannah was so excited  that she made these cookies for a BBQ the next day.  Everyone loved them, and they were  such a hit that we made them again a couple of days later.

One of great thing about these cookies is that you don’t have to feel too guilty about eating them or feeding them to your children.  They have very little sugar and very little oil.  And, for those of you with egg sensitivities, these are egg free as well.  You may be thinking that with all the things these cookies are missing what is in them.  Well, only the two best combinations of flavors in the whole world: peanut butter, and chocolate, and made better with bananas.  Mmmmhmmmhmmm!  My mouth is watering.  Trust me,  you are going to love these.

Okay, let’s get started.  First, peel 3 bananas and add them to your mixing bowl.peanut butter gluten free cookies  (2)

Next, add a  heaping, 1/2 cup, over the top of the cup,  peanut butter.peanut butter gluten free cookies  (4)

Now for the coconut oil.  Add 1 tablespoon.peanut butter gluten free cookies  (5)

1 teaspoon of baking powder, next.peanut butter gluten free cookies  (6)

Now, give a couple of good shakes of the cinnamon into your mixing bowl.  Don’t be shy.peanut butter gluten free cookies  (7)

Look at that dark molasses, isn’t it beautiful?  Add 1/8 of a cup.peanut butter gluten free cookies  (8)

I love all those  rich colors together.  peanut butter gluten free cookies  (9)

Now,blend everything up together.  peanut butter gluten free cookies  (10)

Next, add 2 and 1/2 cups of oats.  I used regular oats, but quick oats are fine if that is what you have.peanut butter gluten free cookies  (11)

Finally, my favorite part, the chocolate chips, add some, as much as you like.  Don’t let this picture fool you.  There are NO raisins in this bowl.  You could use raisins instead of chocolate chips if you are the type of person who likes to ruin recipes by using raisins.  Just kidding.  (or maybe not, I hate raisins.)peanut butter gluten free cookies  (12)

The dough will be very moist and sticky. Drop the dough, by the teaspoon full, onto a greased cookie sheet.  peanut butter gluten free cookies  (13)

MMMmmmmmm, the dough tastes great as well.peanut butter gluten free cookies  (14)

Promptly place the cookies in the oven and bake for 12-13 minutes at 350 degrees.  Let cool.peanut butter gluten free cookies  (16)
