A great recipe for Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies. The raisins are totally optional, but I loved them!
Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies
So, I am starting to embrace this Gluten Free baking. I bought a mix of Gluten Free “flour” and looked up some recipes on the internet. I still want to keep the processed sugar to a minimum and the healthy content to a maximum, so I was very pleased when I came across some cookies on the King Arthur Flour site, HERE.
The same day I made these cookies, I made some gluten free bread. Again, I followed a recipe from KAF and went out and bought $12 Xanthan Gum to make it.
It really wasn’t the best loaf of bread and I feel like I wasted some very expensive flour… If regular bread fails to rise, I don’t feel like I’m out much money, only time. This time around, I’m out both. If you make GF bread regularly, please share a no-fail recipe that you and your family love.
These cookies, however, were a total hit! I really loved the ones that I added the raisins to. They are not sweet, sugary cookies, so the raisins added a nit more sweetness to them that I loved. They definitely tasted like “health food store” cookies with the flax and the thicker oatmeal added.
Like I’ve mentioned before, I love cookies and these quickly disappeared into my belly. My husband had a few and my daughter (the one whom they were originally for) had a few, but I admit that I had most…
If you’re looking for a good cookie to send to school, that’s a bit more filling than a standard chocolate chip cookie, try these. I’ll be making these again, that’s for sure.
Gluten Free Oatmeal Flax Chocolate Chunk Raisin Cookies
24-36 adjust servings
- 6 tablespoons softened butter
- 1/3 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup gluten free Multi-Purpose Flour Mix (I used King Arthur Brand)
- 3/4 cup gluten free rolled oats (not instant or quick cooking) (I used Bob's Red Mill Brand)
- 1/4 cup ground flax seed
- 3/4 cup chocolate chunks (I used Simply Enjoy Brand)
- 3/4 cup raisins, optional
- Mix the butter, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, eggs, and water until combined. Add in the flour, oats, and flax. Hand mix in the chocolate chunks and raisins.
- Refrigerate the dough for about 1 hour, for the flax and oats to soften.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare a cookie sheet with parchment or a silicon mat. Use a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop to measure out the dough and then flatten the scoops slightly.
- Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden brown.
- Cool on the baking sheets for 15 minutes or so, to allow cookies to firm up. Transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Store in a sealed container.
