Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

There is nothing quite like chocolate chip cookies to bring back memories of childhood!  Fresh out of the oven, still warm with the chocolate chips melted and soft.  Or better yet, fresh out of the freezer still cold with the chocolate chips nice and crunchy!  After school, with a glass of milk, all the problems of the day don't seem so big anymore.  

 This gluten free version of an old favourite is as good as Mom's.  When they first come out of the oven they are a bit crisp but after they were completely cooled I put them in a sealed container and they became so moist and chewy and the flavour is amazing.  The child inside all of us needs a chocolate chip cookie once in a while.  But it is hard to have just one!

 

 

Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 cup butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar (or 1/2 cup white sugar + 1/2 cup brown sugar)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 cups Gluten Free Flour Blend
  • 1 tsp. Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 cup GF oatmeal
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
Cream together butter and sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat until light.  Stir together flour, soda, salt and xanthan gum, add to batter and mix until well combined. Stir in oatmeal and chocolate chips.  Refrigerate for one hour then shape dough into one inch balls and flatten with the palm of your hand on a cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 -12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on the pan for 5 minutes, transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.  Yield: 2 1/2 doz.
