Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Guess what I made during the weekend.

Yep. You are right. I baked gluten free chocolate chip cookies. I think the name of the post gave it away.  I baked them for a huge family gathering on Saturday.  It made 35 cookies and they were all gone by the end of the night. Well, two of my cousins ate 5 cookies. The others ate around 2 – 3. Whoops.

I have tried gluten free cookies before but I was always turned off by its gritty texture. It really depends on what ingredients you use to make the cookies. I am happy to say that these cookies are 100% whole grain. It does have sugar in it but these cookies use a lot less sugar. Did I mention that no butter is used in this?

So, here is the recipe to the cookies. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups brown rice flour
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats (make sure they are gluten free)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • chocolate chip cookies (as much as you want)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar (sometimes, I use 1 cup instead)
  • 1 cup oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. In a bowl, “cream” together the sugars and oil.
  3. Mix in the eggs and vanilla extract.
  4. In another bowl, sift together the flour, oats,  salt, and baking powder.
  5. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients.  Mix in the chocolate chips.
  6. Drop 2 tablespoon size dough on the cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes.
  8. Take it out, let it cool, and enjoy!

Let me know what you guys think of these cookies. I know my family liked them. I actually saved a few for my friend to try. He said they were good too.
