Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip CookiesI’m beginning to realize ( I know it’s taken me 2 years) that to make good gluten free baked goods you need to start with the basics.  My problem is that I’m always trying to make these baked goods that I never even made back in our gluten full days.

So now I look for recipes that are close to my old recipes or I try to bake goods that are just naturally gluten free.

So what is more basic that a good old chocolate chip cookie, and this gluten free recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, tastes just like the real thing…and that’s because it’s very similar to a gluten full recipe.

These cookies turn out chewy and soft (if you bake for only 10 minutes) or a little crunchier if you bake longer.  Personally I had mine in the oven for 12 minutes and then I let sit on the baking sheets for another 5 minutes.  They were perfect!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup organic butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Sugar
  • 1 cup organic brown sugar
  • 2 organic eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp Simply Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 3 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cup organic chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, beat the butter until smooth. Add the sugars and continue beating until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.  Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth again.

Whisk together the dry ingredients. Gradually add them to the wet ingredients, half at a time. Stir until fully combined. Add the chocolate chips and stir again.

Drop the dough onto a baking sheet lined with a parchment paper. Bake for 8-10 minutes for soft and chewy cookies or longer for crunchier ones.

Let the cookies cool on the tray for at least 5 minutes; where they will finish baking without overcooking. Transfer to a cooling rack and then store in an airtight container. The cookies will keep well for several days.

    • Sophie,

      I know that some of my recipes have a lot of sugar, butter or other ingredients that people are trying to cut down on. However I bake mostly for the girls and I try to balance good things with maybe some not so great things. Most of the time I’m using all organic ingredients (though don’t look at my Trix Bars post – that cereal is full of junk) 🙂
