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.

Okay, now on to the recipe....

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup palm oil shortening
1 3/4 cups coconut sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups Gluten Free rolled oats
1 1/2 cups Enjoy Life dark chocolate morsels or other dairy-free chocolate chips
2/3 cup chopped nuts (peanuts or walnuts)

Preheat oven to 350F. With a stand mixing, cream together the peanut butter, shortening, coconut sugar and honey. Add in the baking powder and baking soda and mix until combined.

Beat in the eggs and vanilla until combined.  Stir in the oats, chocolate chips, and nuts.

Drop by spoonfuls until an ungreased cookie sheet and bake about 10 minutes.  Allow the cookies to cool for about 5 minutes on the tray, then transfer them to a cooling rack to finish cooling completely.
