No gluten, corn, or soy will be found in these oat cookies and subbing coconut, beet, or Monkfruit Sweetener is fine for the cane sugar. Shortening or coconut oil can be substituted for the butter if you prefer or need a dairy-free cookie.

Did you know Quaker now offers gluten-free oats? I just found this out…I might be behind the curve a bit. As always be sure that any brand of gluten-free oats are certified so no one gets sick.

To make peanut butter oaties egg-free try using aquafaba, it’s amazing for eggless baking. When subbing always check ingredients for hidden allergens.

Shown here are vegan peanut butter oaties with coconut oil and aquafaba.
Aquafaba – drain the liquid from canned garbanzo beans ~ 3 Tbsp liquid equals 1 egg.

I also made them larger as requested by my husband : )

  • 1/4 cup butter softened ~ shortening or coconut oil for dairy-free
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter ~ I used natural peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats ~ certified gluten-free if needed
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips ~ allergy-friendly if needed


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl add butter, sugars, and peanut butter and mix well.
  • Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Add baking soda and oats. Mix to combine. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Using a small cookie scoop or about 1 1/2 Tbsp of dough form small balls and press down slightly. These cookies don’t spread out much if any while baking so I bake quite a few at a time on the cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes. 10 minutes for smaller cookies, 12 for larger cookies. Remove from oven and let cookies set for a couple minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Cookies will firm up nicely at room temperature, but we love them frozen.


These oaties also make fantastic ice cream sandwiches!
