Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I actually have a recipe going up today, yay!!  This little gem requires no flour and is quick and easy to throw together.  The cookies come out nice and chewy, and taste amazing!

For those of you that just read my recipe posts, please know that I won't be posting recipes every week like I have in the past.  My focus has changed a bit in my life.  I still love developing recipes and will do so in my spare time, but I will be very busy this year teaching classes on essential oils (which have changed my life and my family's life, physically, mentally and emotionally) and heading up the local GF group.  Please continue to read my posts and enjoy my blog, even if they are few and far between.  I love my readers and I do appreciate you reading my blog.

If you would like to be a part of my journey in learning about essential oils, I do teach webinars about twice a month.  Below are this month's webinars:
