Gluten-Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is having a fantastic week so far. I can’t wait to get back to cooking real meals after my last 2 midterms are over next week.

Today, I will be sharing my quick and easy recipe on Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, which happen to be gluten-free. I’ve had a huge bag of oatmeal from Costco laying around so I thought I might as well put it to good use. These are super delicious and very easy to make. I find that eating an oatmeal cookie satisfies your craving for a chocolate chip cookie, as one makes you full since it has all that oatmeal!

Let’s get started!

Ingredients: (Makes about 12 cookies)

  • 1 and 1/4 cup of Ground Oats (to make oat flour)
  • 1 and 1/2 cup of Whole Oats
  • 3/4 cup of Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup of Butter
  • 1 tablespoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • A pinch of Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • 1/2 cup of Chocolate Chips

Directions:

  1. In a food processor or equivalent to a Nutri Ninja Auto‑iQ, add 2 cups of whole oats and pulse until it becomes oat flour. It’s ok to make more to store in your pantry. Set aside.IMG_7986.JPG
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and spray 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the butter and brown sugar until smooth.
  4. Add the vanilla extract and egg.IMG_8059-1.JPGIMG_8058-1.JPG
  5. Stir in the ground oat flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.IMG_8060-1.JPG
  6. Add in the whole oats and chocolate chips and mix until it resembles dough.
  7. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes so the dough stays firm.
  8. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, pack the dough into the measuring cup and turn out the dough onto the baking sheet. Make sure to only place 6 cookies per baking sheet as they tend to spread out while baking.IMG_8061.JPG
  9. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Let them cook for 5 minutes and then serve!

Suggestions, Substitutions, Tips & Tricks:

  • You can leave out the salt as it just enhances the sweet taste of the cookies.
  • Make extra oat flour! – It is such a great alternative to all purpose flour.
  • Be sure to use the measuring cup to place your cookies on the baking sheet. The smaller the better as they spread out while baking.

I hope everyone can make these sometime this week! They’re super easy and fast to make and so delicious to eat! A very great treat to have on hand if you’re ever craving dessert.
