Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (Vegan and GF)

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp xanthan gum (if your gluten free flour doesn’t contain xanthan or guar gum)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of himalayan salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or organic brown sugar)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 3.5 tsp coconut oil (melted but not hot)
  • 1/4 cup almond milk (room temperature)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips or 1/3 cup regular sized chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Set aside.
  3. Heat coconut oil until it is just melted. It does not need to get hot. If your almond milk is cold, you can heat them both together.
  4. In a medium bowl, stir together coconut sugar, maple syrup, coconut oil, almond milk, and vanilla. Mix until well combined.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  7. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  8. Take about 3 tablespoons worth of dough and form into a ball. Press down on the ball and flatten it to form a disk shape. These cookies will not grow much, so create the shape you desire for your cookies. Repeat with remaining cookie dough.
  9. Bake cookies for about 13 minutes, until bottoms turn slightly golden brown. Cool, serve, and enjoy!
