Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Are you looking for  a delicious gluten free oatmeal chocolate chip cookie?  I was, and I found the best recipe!  I made them a few weeks ago and then I made them again, that’s how I know they are good, I never make the same recipe on back-to-back weekends.  I googled healthy cookies and this recipe from The Baker Mama came up on my search.  With a son with Celiac Disease, I am always looking for alternatives that he will enjoy. Check out the pictures The Baker Mama took of her cookies… they really show off the chocolate as the cookies come out of the oven.. melting and gooey.  They are a.mazing! Even my husband, who does not like oatmeal cookies, could not stop eating them…that is how good they are!  Depending on your preference, you can make these with either regular or gluten free oats. If you are looking for another Gluten Free option try my sons’ favorite Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie or if you want a Non-Gluten Free recipe, these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are really good.

RECIPE: Flourless Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

The Best Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Our son was diagnosed with Celiac Disease at 21 months old and has been gluten free ever since.  Now at 16 years old, he has tasted his fair share of GF products and is very particular about what brands he likes.  We have also made countless types of bread, cookies and baked goods for him to try and have found just a few that he really enjoys.  This year he called to tell me that he had tasted the Best Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies ever and that I needed to make them for him.  He got the recipe from his teacher, Mrs. Brown, and I have made them several times this Summer.  We felt that the cookies did not stay fresh as long as non-GF cookies, so I now freeze the batter and bake them when he wants them (see notes in recipe).  I agree, they really are delicious and a perfect treat.  I hope you like them as much as we do!

  6. Stir in the chunks of chopped chocolate.
  7. Bake for 9-11 minutes depending on oven.

Notes
Ridgely's Notes: I use a small ice cream scoop and place the balls of batter on a parchment lined cookie sheet and place in the freezer. Once the batter balls are frozen, I remove from the freezer and place them in a Ziplock baggie in the freezer. I bake them as needed straight from the freezer. My son prefers them fresh from the oven and thinks they do not stay fresh for very long when I bake all the batter at once.

Thin Chocolate Chocolate White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love a good chocolate chip cookie and I have posted my fair share in the past, but I have been looking for a really good white chocolate chip recipe.  The reason being that our accountant, who  loves cookies as much as I do, prefers white chocolate chips and I like to send homemade cookies to him during tax season and then again when quarterly payments are due. He is happy to try and share any cookies I send his way and was particularly pleased to receive the recent batch of chocolate chocolate white chocolate chip cookies .  I found the recipe on The Pioneer Woman and, while I did not follow her step by step pictures, I did follow the recipe.  For some reason my cookies came out thin, and slightly crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle.  A very yummy cookie that to my taste needs a little tweaking.  I am going to make a few changes to the ingredients and see if I can see what is missing.  Give them a try and see what you think.. maybe it is just that I am not a white chocolate chip lover…

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever

With a description of  ” best chocolate chip cookies recipe ever” how can I resist?  I can’t that’s what! So I made these very best cookies and I have to say they were darn good.  They were gobbled up by crew of medium hands and I luckily was not left with but a crumb. (It is tough dieting and trying to be gluten free around chocolate chip cookies!)  I knew I would love them when it called for 2 1/4 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips (the more chocolate the better in my book) and sea salt, not just any old salt!  Give them a try and see how they rate against your favorite recipe… I do not think you will be disappointed.

Chocolate Chip Cookies, Gluten Free

I made the gluten free chocolate chip cookies and they are delicious!  They were on my to-do list last weekend and they did not disappoint. I stored them in an air-tight container and took them to the office on Monday. I offered them up to everyone and asked for their opinions (omitting the fact they were gluten free.)  I got back rave reviews and no one suspected they were gluten free.  The cookies were chewy in the middle and crusty on the outside, they lasted the week and did not lose their texture.  I know chocolate chip cookies and I was very impressed, they will be my new go-to cookie!! Here is the recipe.  Delicious!
