Small Recipe... GF Chocolate Chip Cookies

The recipe book Better Homes and Gardens Great Cooking For Two has this recipe, along with 2 variations for Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies. Notice that it says Oat cookies not oatmeal cookies. That is because the oatmeal is ground up in your blender or food processor till they turn into a powder (flour).
 I liked the idea of a small amount of cookies, the oats used as a flour and by using a Measure to Measure flour from King Arthur I made them Gluten Free. The recipe calls for an all purpose flour but they can be made either way. I did not try them with GF all purpose flour but any GF flour that can be swapped one for one should work for GF.
 They are a good soft cookie that will go on my list of GF baking treats.

 Chocolate Chip Oat Cookie

⅔ cup oatmeal
¼ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup butter softened
1 egg
½ teaspoon vanilla
⅓ cup all purpose flour or measure to measure type GF flour
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ cup chocolate chips
¼ cup chopped nuts (optional)
For oat flour, place oatmeal in blender or food processor and blend until flour texture. In a large mixing bowl, using a spoon, stir together the sugar, brown sugar, and butter. Mix until smooth. Stir in the egg and vanilla.
Add the oat flour, all purpose flour and baking soda. Stir until combined. Stir in the chips and nuts if using.
 Drop dough from a rounded teaspoon 2 inches apart on an ungreased sheet pan.
Bake in a 375°F oven for 8 to 9 minutes or till edges are lightly brown. Remove and cool on rack. Makes 12 cookies

  1. I don't like chocolate chip cookies. Never had. But, they are my husband's favorite.
    On the other hand, the Coconut Lemon Oat sounds great.

    1. I don't like coconut but the Almond Oat is my favorite way for this recipe.
