Allergy Free Pea Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

We have recently discovered golden pea butter as an alternative to peanut butter.  Since Bee cannot eat peanut butter, almond butter, sun butter, or any other type of nut butter we had despaired of ever eating anything that resembled a peanut butter cookie or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  While pea butter is not the same, (it is much drier and harder to spread) it tastes great in cookies!

Pea Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups pea butter
4 1/2 teaspoons egg replacer mixed with 6 Tablespoons rice milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon xanthan
4 1/2 cups regular oats
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 package Enjoy Life chocolate chunks

Beat butter with olive oil.
Gradually add in sugars.
Add pea butter, egg replacer, and vanilla.  Mix well.
Add oats, xanthan, soda, and salt.  Beat well.
Stir in chocolate chunks.
Drop dough on parchment lined baking sheets using 1/4 cup.  Flatten slightly.
Bake at 350 for 14 minutes.  Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before removing to cooling rack.
