Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

My husband is a big fan of chocolate chips and big fan of oatmeal, but he's not such a big fan of raisin oatmeal cookies. I went ahead and indulged his request for chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, and my whole family loved them (even the non-celiacs).

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup sorghum
1/3 cup tapioca
1/2 cup turbinado sugar
3 cups oats
1 tsp baking powder (corn and gluten free)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup Spectrum Shortening (palm oil)
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup applesauce
1/4 cup agave
1/2 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips

Combine and whisk the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine the shortening, cinnamon, applesauce, agave and coconut oil and then stir in the chocolate chips with the wet ingredients. I would recommend leaving the coconut oil by the stove for a little while to soften. Then combine both wet and dry ingredients.

I put a heaping tablespoon on the cookie sheet and they were done baking between 8 and 10 minutes at 350 F (I think our oven runs a little cold though).

Lance loved the dough almost as much as the cookies.

I may be taking a short break from posting recipes for a little while. I wanted to get a recipe base established in my first month of blogging, and I think I've got a good start. I need to take some time to focus on the basics - capturing better images, retesting recipes more, and just taking some time to come up with more original recipes. I have several recipes to post, but I want to make sure they are just right. I made some very delicious lemon loaf this weekend, but the consistency wasn't quite there.

This weekend I will be hosting a Gluten Free Gala at my house and my friend and I will be offering samples of our recipes. I'm excited to get feedback and hopefully some fresh ideas.

If you have feedback on any recipe or recommendations, please let me know. I'm happy to take any criticism and aim for improvement.


  1. I'm with Lance on the Oatmeal Raisin - give us the chocolate! (let me know if you want to see a GF cookbook I'm sure I can get a few if you want)

  2. I saw these linked from aimee/bitt's blog. they look amazing!
