American, gluten free
Large baking sheet
thick peanut butter
crunchy or smooth
old fashioned rolled oats
gluten free if necessary
bicarbonate of soda
light brown sugar
dark chocolate chips
dairy free if necessary
Preheat the oven to 350 F/ 180 C/ gas mark 4. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a bowl combine the oats with the baking soda and sugar and stir thoroughly.
In a separate bowl beat the egg then add into the oats mixture along with the peanut butter and chocolate chips.
Stir until well incorporated. The batter will be sticky but not overly thick.
Drop spoonfuls of the batter onto the baking sheet leaving plenty of space in between and flatten a little using a large spoon or fork. The cookies will expand in the oven.
Bake for 12 minutes until lightly browned around the edges.
Remove from the oven and set aside for at least 10 minutes to cool. Enjoy warm.
Use old fashioned rolled oats, not instant oats.
If your batter is a little too runny add a bit more oats (1 tablespoon).
If your peanut butter does not contain any salt add a pinch of fine sea salt into the batter.
Do not overcrowd the baking sheet. Bake in 2 batches if using a small baking sheet.
You can enjoy these cookies dairy free by ensuring your chocolate chips contain no dairy.
