IN CELEBRATION OF OUR NEW GLUTEN FREE PIZZA CRUST: A GLUTEN FREE COOKIE RECIPE!!!
For the past couple years, I have made my best effort to eat gluten free but, since I don’t have celiac disease, I give myself the liberty of eating gluten when the situation calls for it. Like when there are cookies anywhere within reach. Definitely my kryptonite. And unfortunately I haven’t found a gluten free cookie I like, probably because they are all made with a funky flour like rice or corn substituted for wheat flour. But I did find a recipe on the back of my oatmeal from Trader Joes and it contained NO flour at all, just oats. So I thought I would try it. So good!! Not a replacement for an old fashioned, crispy-on-the-outside-chewy-on-the-inside oatmeal cookie or an oatmeal scotchie from my childhood which, by the way, was mouthwatering for 2 reasons- the butterscotch chips and the fact that no one ever put raisins in oatmeal scotchies, but a whole new experience that is equally as perfect. So if you’re craving a cookie and you’re trying to keep gluten out of your diet, I highly recommend this recipe. A couple things I experienced- don’t overcook, 12:00 minutes seemed perfect and I noticed the chocolate chips don’t want to incorporate into the dough, which was very weird. Almost like a science experiment where the dough repelled the chips but I persevered and overcame by pushing them back in to every scoop I put on the baking sheet. I’ll be curious to see if anyone else has this problem!!
