Wheat Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


You won't even miss wheat when you make these cookies - they are delicious! 
I need to clarify - I am not calling these "gluten free" for a reason - technically there is no gluten in oats however, since oatmeal is processed in factories that also process wheat products there might be some gluten present.  If you have celiac disease or some other gluten sensitivity then please be cautious before making these cookies (see disclaimer at the end of this post).

Printable Recipe
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter (at room temperature)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Xanthan Gum
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt (I used salted butter - if you are using unsalted butter then add 1/2 teaspoon salt instead)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups oatmeal (I used old fashioned rolled oats but you may use quick oats instead)
1 cup brown rice flour (you may use white rice flour also)
1/2 cup nuts or raisins are optional

 
With an electric mixer in a large mixing bowl - cream together both sugars & the butter until fluffy (a few minutes).  Now add in the egg & vanilla extract & mix until combined.  Using a wooden spoon stir in the flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, Xanthan Gum,  baking soda, cinnamon and continue stirring until combined.  Finally stir in the chocolate chips (and the nuts/raisins - optional).  Form 3inch puck shaped dough blobs & place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet (see picture above on the right).  Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes (or until desired golden brown color is achieved).
