Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies! (Gluten-Free and Awesome!)

Cookie recipe time!!! :)

If you read my blog, you may remember seeing these...

I actually made these a few weeks ago, but since I don't blog very regularly anymore, I am just getting around to posting the recipe now. This recipe is DEFINITELY worth sharing. After making these, they quickly became a new favorite. And I LOVE the fact that they have oats in them because oats are supposed to help increase breast milk supply! I am totally doing myself (and Ava!) a favor by eating lots of these cookies! ;) 

This recipe was inspired and adapted from THIS recipe at Sally's Baking Addiction. I changed the recipe by making them gluten-free and decreasing the amount of sugar.


3/4 cup Pamela's Gluten-Free Baking and Pancake Mix
1/2 cup melted butter OR coconut oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/8 cup honey
1/8 cup maple syrup
1 egg
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups oats
1/2 cup-1 cup chocolate chips

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In a medium size bowl, whisk together the melted butter, sugar, honey, maple syrup, peanut butter, egg and vanilla. Then throw in your Pamela's and the oats. You can totally try another GF mix here, such as Pure Pantry. Try anything as long as it has baking soda, baking powder and salt already added to it, like Pamela's does. I LOVE using Pamela's because it never lets me down and always makes for an awesome recipe. Ok! So, mix all your ingredients together well and then fold in the chocolate chips. Roll the dough into balls and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. 

They should be slightly golden brown, soft, chewy, peanut buttery, chocolatey and delicious!


Now, to transition away from cookies...let me just tell you, I am relaxing in bed drinking a beer while Ava Lily sleeps and it sure feels good! We had a BEAUTIFUL day at our friend's house today. We went for a truly magical walk in the woods and ate some super yummy food!

 So beautiful! The other day when I was on a walk with one of my dear friends, she told me about a study that proved that being in nature produces the same feeling you get when you're falling in love. So, spend as much time in nature as you can! Because falling in love is one of the BEST feelings in the world :) I continue to fall deeper and deeper in love EVERYDAY. With Woody and Ava and my life and myself and all the blessings that make my life what it is. 

Have a blessed day! Eat some cookies! Fall in love! And be happy :)
