Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies ~ Gluten Free

You would never guess these are gluten free.
No need to feel deprived of yummy things if you have
to bypass the gluten.  These make up for that.

Be sure that your oats are certified gluten free
if you have to be strict about your gluten avoidance.

What you need:

2 cups Rolled Oats (GF)
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1 cup Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup melted Butter
2/3 cup Golden Brown Sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened Medium Coconut
1 large Egg ~ slightly beaten
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

What you do:

Grind the oats in a food processor until flour-like in consistency.
Leave a few oats in slightly larger pieces to provide texture to the cookies.
Put ground oats into a medium bowl and stir in the baking soda, sea salt and
chocolate chips until well blended.  Set aside.

Melt butter over medium heat in small pot.  
Pour melted butter into large mixing bowl and allow to cool slightly.
Stir the brown sugar, coconut, egg, and vanilla into the melted butter.  Mix well.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir together until mixed thoroughly.
Spoon heaping teaspoons of cookie cough onto parchment lined baking sheet.
Don't press the dough down before baking.

Bake in preheated 350 degree F oven for 8 or 9 minutes until golden.
Remove from oven and allow cookies to rest on pan for 5 minutes
before removing to cooling racks.

These cookies will spread as they bake ~ 
be sure to leave space for them to comfortably do so.
It's imperative that you let them rest for the recommended 5 minutes
or they will fall apart.  If you cannot wait, your cookies will be broken.

I must admit, however, it's worth it to have one (or two) 
warm from the oven.  Use a fork if you must.  :)
One recipe makes 36 cookies.

Happy Baking!
With Love, Camille
