Cassava Peanut Butter Oat Cluster Cookies are the ultimate gluten-free treat. The combination of both the cassava and oat flour makes them extra soft to bite into. Cassava and Tigernut flour are fantastic substitutes for wheat flour in cookies, and I’ve been loving the outcome of my gluten-free cookies.

When I bake, I always use parchment paper. I like using these super handy pre-cut sheets of parchment paper; silicone liners also work well.

We always seem to have a few extra toffee pieces in the candy cupboard, so I chopped some up and sprinkled it on top of each cookie before baking. Now that’s a delicious option!

Notes

**Substitution Ideas:
• Peanut butter chips ~ substitute semi-sweet allergy-friendly chocolate chips for peanut & dairy-free.
• Chopped mini peanut butter cups ~ Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups are dairy & gluten-free. For peanut-free, substitute with sunflower seed butter cups
Corn-free baking powder
• Cocktail peanuts ~ optional
• Peanut butter M&Ms ~ omit for peanut-free
I’ve also substituted chopped toffee for peanut butter cups. I sprinkle the chopped toffee on top of each cookie before baking; it’s a delicious option. All the candies I list in this recipe are gluten-free but not dairy or egg-free.
