Skinny Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free) – these gluten free goodies are packed full of oats and dark chocolate and contain no butter, refined sugar, or flour!
Oats and chocolate are probably my all-time favorite cookie combo. Hold the raisins, I’ll take chocolate instead! These cookies are chewy, sweet, and full of nutty oats and rich chocolate. They make the perfect afternoon snack or healthier sweet treat for your kid’s lunchbox. I think you could even go so far as to call them a breakfast cookie! 😉
Ditch the processed cookies and packaged granola bars! It’s so easy to make your own healthier treats at home that are nutrient dense with fiber-rich oats and healthy fats from coconut oil. For this recipe, I lightened up a traditional oatmeal cookie by eliminating the butter and replacing refined sugar with pure maple syrup. Oats and oat flour stand in for the white flour to make them whole grain and gluten free. If I’m not making my own oat flour in the food processor, I love Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Oat Flour.
How to Make Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Begin by making your oat flour (if you’re not using store bought.) Place 2-3 cups of oats in a high speed blender or food processor and pulse until the oats are finely ground, resembling a flour consistency.
Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients and whisk well.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips. Refrigerate the dough for at least 15 minutes.
Scoop dough onto a baking sheet and bake at 325 degrees.
