Oats do not contain gluten. At one time it was thought that they did, but they do not.
They are nice and soft too.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease cookie sheets.
2/3 cup smooth peanut butter
4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup rolled oats, ground to a powder in a food processor or blender
1-1/2 cups rolled oats
2 cups chocolate chips
In a bowl, cream the peanut butter, butter,vanilla extract, salt, and baking soda.
Add the eggs.
Stir in the ground oats, rolled oats, and chocolate chips.
Using a medium cookie scoop or a spoon drop tablespoons of dough onto cookie sheets.
Bake for 11-13 minutes until they are just barely set and starting to brown around the edges.
Let the cookies cool on the sheets before removing them to a rack.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
