Gluten-free Peanut Butter Cookies are crispy, crumbly and full of flavor.
Preheat your oven to 350F and line 2 pans with parchment paper.
In the food processor, process the oats into flour like meal. This might take few minutes.
Do the same with the peanuts but make sure not to over process or the peanuts will be too oily. Just until you have evenly crushed peanuts.
In a bowl of a standing mixer, place the shortening, sugar, peanut butter, egg and salt and mix until you get a smooth mixture.
Add the oats and peanuts and mix to combine.
Using a cookies spoon, scoop the cookie dough on the pans and using the back of a fork mark each cookie from top to bottom and then from side to side.
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the cookie is golden on the sides.
