The best darn gluten-free cookies I've ever made...

I've been having serious cravings for something sweet for weeks, and these cookies definitely took care of that! Light and moist, they were a hit and lasted about a day and a half. Taken from a peanut butter cookie recipe and altered, I give you gluten-free chocolate peanut butter oatmeal cookies. Enjoy!
