Simple, delicious, and gluten free, these oat flour chocolate chip cookies are a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth!
If you’re new to the gluten free diet, you might be confused by all the different gluten free flours out there.
There are so many store-bought mixes, and there are lots of different gluten free flour recipes online – it can get very confusing very quickly.
And maybe you just really want to bake something – anything – homemade.
That’s where these gluten free oat flour chocolate chip cookies come in. They’re simple to make, and they require the simplest of gluten free flours – oat flour.
You can buy gluten free oat flour if you wish, but it’s so easy to make your own oat flour at home. You just need gluten free oats, and a food processor. Even a coffee grinder would probably work in a pinch!
Are oats really gluten free?
Yes, oats are naturally gluten free. The issue is with cross contamination – oats are often processed in the same facility as wheat, so they become contaminated with gluten.
Be sure to buy only oats that are certified gluten free – this means that they are not processed with any wheat or any grains that contain gluten.
Can these chocolate chip cookies be frozen?
You can easily freeze the dough for these cookies! Just scoop onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, and then freeze for one hour. Remove the cookie dough balls, and place in a resealable freezer bag. When you’re ready to bake them, just place on a cookie sheet and bake as directed. No need to than them first.
How long can you keep cookie dough in the freezer?
The frozen cookie dough can be kept in the freezer for up to three months.
These gluten free oat flour chocolate chip cookies are delicious and easy to make! They are slightly more delicate than cookies made with a gluten free flour blend, so you will want to let them cool completely before removing them from the cookie sheet.
This is a good recipe for those who want to incorporate more oats into their baking, or those who want a very simple gluten free flour alternative.
