Our Adventures In Baking – Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Chocolate, Oat and Peanut Butter Cookies

I made a terrific batch of chocolate drop cookies I call ‘Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Chocolate, Oat and Peanut Butter Cookies,’ that my wife found at ’12 Tomatoes dot com’ called ‘Slow Cooker Chocolate Cookies.’ This was an easy recipe to follow, and the results were just as advertised ~ perfect for the holidays!

I set the slow cooker on low heat, and my recommendation is to check the chocolate for reaching the boiling point before the minimum cooking time has expired, as you can’t see the chocolate boiling underneath the oats without probing the mixture to check.  The only alteration I made to this recipe was that I used ‘super chunky’ peanut butter when the recipe called for smooth, but I like the addition of nuts in these cookies.

You could just as easily add chopped walnuts with smooth peanut butter, or add some flaked coconut if you like.  I used a small cookie scoop in portioning out my cookies, and it made 50, 1.5″ cookies. Either way, it’s an easy and scrumptious recipe ~ enjoy! ☼ 🙂
