Made with creamy peanut butter, chewy oatmeal and sweet mini chocolate chips, these flourless, gluten-free whole grain Weight Watchers friendly cookies, were a huge hit when I made them.

½cupsmooth peanut butter
⅓cupgranulated no-calorie sweetener (I used Truvia Baking Blend)
1-¼cupsquick-cooking oats (not instant)
⅓cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Or line with silpat or parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the peanut butter, sweetener, baking soda, and brown sugar until well creamed. Add the egg and vanilla and continue beating until the mixture is smooth.
Stir in the oats and the chocolate chips.
Form the cookies: Take level tablespoons of dough and roll it into 1-inch balls. Place on the cookie sheet and flatten the cookies by pressing down on the dough with a spatula or the bottom of a glass.
Bake until the cookies are golden brown on the bottom but still slightly soft in the center, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer the cookies to wire racks and allow to cool completely.
