IMG_0425

Morning! What's better than an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie? Maybe a vegan and gluten free one that everyone you know can enjoy! Although this recipe is vegan and gluten free, it couldn't be more simple. These cookies are absolutely delicious, and got the non-Vegan-Gluten-Free person approval. So you know they're good. chocoat2

You will need:

1 cup of oats 1 cup of gluten free flour (I used Bob's Red Mill all-purpose flour) 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum 1/2 cup of sugar 1/4 cup of chia seeds (If you don't have chia seeds, you can use flax) 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon 1 tsp of sea salt 3/4 cup of apple sauce or canola oil 1/3 cup of almond milk 1 tsp of vanilla extract 1/2 - 1 cup of chocolate chips

To start, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the dry ingredients together in one bowl, and mix the wet in another. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and mix well. Add in the chocolate chips.

Using an ice cream scoop or a rough estimate of 1/4 cup, make balls of dough. Flatten each ball to about 1/4 inch thick and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes.

Once out of the oven, let the cookies cool for at least 20 minutes so they can settle and stick together well. Enjoy!
