Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is a darn good cookie recipe.  I've made it more than any other chocolate chip recipe in the last months.


It is best "healthier" version of chocolate chip cookies I've ever baked, Gluten-Free or otherwise.

True, "healthier" and "chocolate chip cookie" probably don't belong in the sentence, but these cookies boast lots of whole grain and half the butter is replaced with less-saturated fat vegetable oil.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
(adapted from a traditional cookie recipe from

1 1/2 cups Gluten-Free Oats
2 cups Gluten-Free Flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup canola oil
2/3 cup white sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grind oats in a food processor, blender or coffee grinder until they resemble coarse sand.

Combine the oats, flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the butter until soft and fluffy, then add the oil, sugars, eggs and vanilla.  Stir well until fully incorporated.

Slowly add the flour mixture, a little at a time.  Stir until fully combined and add the chocolate chips.

Drop spoonfuls onto a baking sheet:

Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until the edges are slightly browned.

Makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies.

Life is sweet,

Is there a specific kind of "GF Flour" you use? Almond meal, Rice?

I use Bob's Red Mill GF Mix, but there are lots of other blends out there too. My hunch is that rice would work better than almond, just because the fine consistency would meld well with the oats. But try and let me know if you do!

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
