Magic Flourless Medley Cookies


A blend of 3 favorite cookies magically holds together without any type of flour and makes for a scrumptious not-too-sweet treat whether you are gluten-free or not.

I call these cookies “magic” because it confounds me that they stay together, rise, and have a lovely not-too-soft texture and taste so good without any type flour in them at all! I tried out a few different recipes I came across online but found them to be too sweet and/or toooo oily for my taste, and so went about experimenting and crafted my own recipe. Cookie monster that I am, I love that they are not only flourless, but also a “medley” of my favorite types of cookies – peanut butter, oatmeal, AND chocolate chip! They come together and bake quickly, and are scrumptious with a glass of milk, a cup of coffee, or with vanilla ice cream sandwiched in-between.

Mis en place! Everything in it’s place.

  • electric mixer
  • baking sheet
  • cooling rack


  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened (1/2 stick)
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar dark works fine too
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats be sure they are gluten-free if desired
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or peanuts
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 pinch kosher or sea salt more for the top if desired


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment.
  • Stir honey into the cup of peanut butter.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the peanut butter and honey mixture, softened butter, and light brown sugar until smooth.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.
  • Add oats and baking soda, and mix on a lower speed until just combined.
  • Stir in the walnuts and chocolate chips.
  • Drop two tablespoon sized portions at least 1 inch apart onto parchment-lined baking sheet. Flatten the top gently with palm of your hand.
  • Bake cookies for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to cooling racks to rest another 10 minutes. Nomnomnom!


If you don't have an electric mixer, use a big bowl and an electric hand mixer, or go old fashion and use whisk butter, light brown sugar, eggs and vanilla together, and then use a big wooden spoon or stiff spatula to incorporate the rest of the ingredients by hand - it just takes a little more elbow grease that way, but the cookies are worth it.
