  1. Hi Miryam,

    What is an ancinogen? I tried to google it but didn’t come up with much.

    Also, ANY peanut butter, organic or not, is susceptible to contamination by aflatoxin which is the toxin from Aspergillus flavus. Just because the peanuts are grown organically does not mean Aspergillus cannot grow on it and release its toxins.

    • It was a typo, it is a corcinogen :-) Is that right? Where did you get that source from? Organically grown doesn’t use the conventional harmful chemicals regular farmers use. Wouldn’t that already avoid the activation of such potent chemical? Peanuts are one of the must food items to buy organic so I think I will stick with that :-) Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. I’m a fellow dark chocolate lover! And I can never say no to almond butter either. These cookies look great!

  3. Love dark chocolate and love almond butter! These cookies are a must make!

  4. Wonderful cookies! I would never guess they are made out of oats :) ela

  5. looks so good. i just made oatmeal cookies yesterday, but not GF.
    i’ll be back to baking super healthy once the holidays are up.

  6. They look so good Miriam, can’t wait to bake these next week. Your healthier versions are the best. Love your recipes. Pinning.

  7. I used Once Again brand creamy almond butter. The batter was best described as “gluey,” but I popped the scooped batter into the oven with hopes of transformation. The baked cookies did not disappoint! Both warm and cooled, they were moist and not overly-sweet. Thank you for sharing!

  8. I just wanted to post YUM, I made them and these are amazing. :) My nephew thanks you too!

  9. Hi! I just made these and they spread like pancakes and were very fluffy and airy. I am disappointed with the results. I followed the recipe except I used coconut sugar. I beat the wet ingredients for 2 minutes… could that be why the texture was off? The second batch I tried refrigerating and cooking less time, they were better but fell apart slightly. I think the baking soda is the problem. I have made cookies similar to this recipe that didn’t have the baking soda and they cake out chewy and yummy. Not sure what went wrong
