Vegan GF Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

I was craving Peanut Butter, Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Cookies but could not find a recipe in any cookbook or on the internet that was vegan and GF or could easily be adapted, so I just modified a traditional Oatmeal Choc Chip Cookie Recipe and came up with this. They are pretty rich and really tasty! This recipe is also soy free - as long as you check your chocolate chips to make sure they do not contain soy lecithin.

3/4 cup vegetable oil (I prefer Grapeseed for this recipe)
1/2 cup peanut butter
Egg replacer for three eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups GF All Purpose flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
1/4 tsp xantham gum
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups oatmeal
1/2 - 3/4 cup chocolate chips (depending on how chocolatey you want the cookies)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oil, peanut butter, egg replacer and vanilla. Add sugar and brown sugar.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, xantham gum, baking soda and salt.
  4. Combine with oil mixture.
  5. Stir in the oatmeal and chocolate chips until well combined.
  6. Drop by spoonfuls onto a baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
