No Bake Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!

In honor of today I wanted to whip up a batch of cookies but with 110 degree heat here in AZ, turning on the oven was not a very tempting idea. So, no bake was the way to go.

This recipe calls for oat flour. All I do is take oatmeal and grind it in my Ninja processor. You can also use a blender. When I first went gluten-free I tried lots of alternative flours but now oat flour is my go to. I always have it on hand, it inexpensive, nutritious and I like the flavor.

Add a few more pantry staples and you have a great afternoon treat.

This is a great recipe for kids. No oven. They can measure, stir, press the cookies and slide in the fridge.

I hope you enjoy these and they brighten a hot summer afternoon for you and your family.

Recipe:

Dry ingredients: 1 1/2 cups Oat Flour,1/2 tsp Salt, 2 tsp Cinnamon- mix together.

Wet ingredients: 4 Tbsp Peanut Butter (or your preferred nut butter) 1 tsp Vanilla Extract, 3 Tbsp Maple Syrup, 2 Tbsp Non dairy milk (I used Cashew Milk)- mix together.

Add Peanut Butter mixture to the Oatmeal mixture. Once combined add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.

Form into balls and press on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. I used a fork to make a criss cross on top. Put in the fridge for 20 min. Enjoy
