Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cranberry Chewies

You know me, when I think of a new cookie recipe, especially one that is easy {no flour!} I make it.  These cookies took place during nap time about a week ago.

I love baking and being in the kitchen when the kiddos are sleeping {or supposed to be sleeping}.  It gives me time to just unwind without twenty extra fingers and toes surrounding me.

This is a simple bowl and stir cookie.  Dump all the ingredients in, bake and enjoy shortly after.  When the kids woke up from nap they immediately eyed them cooling on the kitchen counter.  Guess what was their afternoon snack?

Yep.  Cookies.

They cookies can easily be gluten free if made with gluten free oats.  So anyone out there who has celiac disease or is just avoiding glutens for whatever reason - make these NOW! You will not be disappointed. They are the perfect, chewy, soft cookie that gives you a hint of fruit and cinnamon, yet still tastes like a peanut butter oatmeal cookie.

In fact I went to go make another batch last night, but sadly was out of eggs {seriously, can the husband stop boiling all my eggs?  He is on an egg salad and hard boiled egg kick....don't ask}.

On that note I need to get some chickens to keep up with our egg consumption.

Or find a lovely local friend who is willing to share their egg profits with me.

Anyone?  Bueller?

I plan on making a few batches of these and freezing the dough in balls prior to baby #3 arriving.  Do you freeze cookie dough?  Simply make the dough, roll into balls and freeze on a cookie sheet.  When frozen, place in a big Ziploc baggie with baking instructions.

Then when you want a cookie {or two, or three} you can simply take out the amount you want and bake them off.

I may find myself baking some off around 2 a.m. during a feeding.  Don't judge.  Feeding mamas get hungry.
