I love it when I can find multiple uses for a product, and I recently did that very thing when I made Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies.
A special thank you goes out to Honey Bunches of Oats Chocolate Cereal for sponsoring this post and for providing this delicious Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe. Opinions expressed are that of my own.
Now I say multiple uses, because I can also eat the star ingredient of this recipe in a bowl with milk or as a dry snack.
Honey Bunches of Oats Chocolate Cereal is a new product that not only has nine essential vitamins and minerals, but is also the first gluten free variety within the Honey Bunches of Oats family.
This heart healthy option has no high fructose corn syrup and is only 130 Calories per serving. In addition, it tastes great and has an excellent texture with crunchy granola bunches as well as crispy honey and chocolate flakes.
Plus if you grind it into a fine powder, it makes an excellent base for Gluten Free Cookies.
So back to those awesome Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies! As you can see by the photo above they look YUMMY, and they are super EASY to make.
Please read on for the recipe details and directions.
Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe Makes 18-20
1 & 3/4 Cups of Honey Bunches of Oats Chocolate Cereal
1/2 Cup of Sugar
1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1 Large Egg
1/2 Cup of Mini Chocolate Chips
First preheat the oven to 350 Degrees F. Then use a food processor to grind the Honey Bunches of Oats Chocolate Cereal into a fine powder. (This will yield about a 1/2 cup when finished).
Next, hand mix the ground cereal, sugar, peanut butter, and egg in a bowl. This will make pretty thick dough. Then, add in the chocolate chips until completely combined.
On a cookie sheet with parchment paper, scoop around 2 tablespoons of dough for each cookie. I rounded these as I placed them 2 inches apart. To finish, bake for 13-15 minutes and cool on a wire rack.
See what I mean by easy, and they also taste great with milk.
