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! 😉

For this recipe, I lightened up a traditional oatmeal cookie by eliminating the butter and replacing refined sugar with pure maple syrup and a touch of honey.  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.

    I’ve always been skeptical of desserts with refined calories and sugar, but these cookies really proved me wrong! Excellent recipe.
