That is why I am sharing my FAVORITE treat recipe with you today!
I promise these will be the BEST cookies you have ever had. You will be amazed and you won’t even miss all the unhealthy junk.
Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 Cups of Gluten Free Rolled Oats (must be old fashion, not instant) – Recommended Brand: Bob’s Red Mill
1 ¼ Cup of Gluten Free Organic Brown Rice Flour – Recommended Brand: Arrowhead Mills
1 ½ Teaspoons of Cinnamon
½ Teaspoon of Gluten Free Baking Soda (Aluminum Free) – Recommended Brand: Bob’s Red Mill
½ Teaspoon of Salt
½ Cup of Organic Unsweetened Tahini – Recommended Brand: Once Again
4 Tablespoons of Organic Butter
1 ¼ Cup of Gluten Free Brown Rice Syrup – Recommended Brand: Sweet Dreams Lundberg
1 Large Organic Egg
1 ½ Teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
½ Cup of Chopped Walnuts (Optional)
1 Cup of Organic 60% Cacao Dark Chocolate Chips (or higher – the darker the better for me)
Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk oats, brown rice flower, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a bowl. In a mixing bowl, beat tahini and butter until smooth. Add brown rice syrup and beat on low speed until well blended. At low speed, beat in egg and vanilla just until blended. Add chocolate chips and walnuts to the dry ingredients. With a spatula fold your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients until all the ingredients are completely mixed together. Drop a tablespoon of the mixture onto your baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at which time cookies should be a light golden brown. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before serving.
