Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

I found a recipe for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies on the back of a box of flour mix that I had won in a giveaway. I decided I wanted to try the recipe out but of course I had to make some changes!  Below you will find my version which I subbed with dairy free ingredients as well as made it refined sugar free as well as a few other things!  Enjoy!

Just a bit crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside these are perfect!  They do not flatten, so if you don't want them a certain shape make sure to change it before baking!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

3 large farm fresh eggs, well beaten
1 cup chocolate chips(or use dried fruit of your choice ie we really liked dried cherries in this too)
              ---Enjoy Life is the only brand I have found so far that are dairy and gluten free.
1 tsp homemade vanilla
1 cup coconut oil
1 cup honey
1/2 cup finely ground demerara
2-1/2 cups gluten free flour blend(the blend I used was WAY too starchy for me but my regular blend   
          works well in these too)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
2 cups gluten free quick oats

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together the coconut oil, honey, and demerara.
In a separate bowl mix the flour, cinnamon, and baking soda together.
Slowly add this to the wet mixture.
Mix well.
Blend in the eggs and vanilla.
Now stir in the oatmeal and chocolate chips.
The dough will be very thick and stiff.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
Let cool on cookie sheet for 1-2 minutes and then place on wire rack to cool.

I liked these as a mid morning snack with my coffee.  The kids like them anyway they can get them!  But they are especially good with milk according to them.

  1. These look great! What is demerara?

    1. Demerara is an unrefined sugar much the same as sucanat or turbinado.
