Gluten-Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today was the day to try out the recipe I found on Gluten-Free Goddess for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. 

 I looked at the oats in my cupboard and then decided to do a little research on oats and gluten-free cooking.  I discovered that if you truly need to be gluten-free you must purchase gluten-free oats.  This ensures that the oats are not grown around grains and that they have not be processed at a mill that mills grains.  I also learned that even then some with celiac disease can have reactions to oatmeal.  What most doctors suggest is that if you are going gluten-free don’t eat any oats for at approx. 2 years and then try to introduce it. 

The Gluten-Free Goddess is vegan but I am not so I used good old butter in my recipe.  I also replaced the tapioca starch with potato starch and used the millet flour because I had some opened.  I used 1/4 cup less brown sugar. I haven’t had free range eggs for a couple of weeks so I used regular eggs.  The original recipe uses dark chocolate chips but I had semi-sweet so used them. Here is my revised recipe:

  • 1 cup sorghum flour aka sweet sorghum flour
  • 1/4 cup GF millet flour
  • 1/2 cup potato starch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups GF Oatmeal
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chips

These cookies were yummy and moist.  Here is the nutritional info that I input into Sparkpeople.com.  This is based on 58 cookies.  I use a small scoop when I bake my cookies.
