Flourless Monster Cookies

I'm sorry for not posting last week, I was on vacation in Massachusetts.  Visiting my husbands family, doing Halloween there, doing the Freedom Trail and visiting New Hampshire.  We were busy, busy, busy.  No tine to post anything, sadly. 

I hope these awesome cookies make up for it just a little. 

I'm still on my flourless obsession.  These cookies are so good you'll never know there isn't any flour in them.  There is oatmeal and that gives them plenty of texture. The peanut butter flavor is not overwhelming.  Just subtle.  The big pieces of chocolate makes me extremely happy.  These cookies turn out golden on the bottom, chewy and flavorful.  I love them. 

Join me on my flourless recipe quest.  If you've got any good one's, send them my way!
