Gluten Free Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten Free Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Welcome to the Sunday Fitness & Food Link-Up! This week I am sharing one of my favorite cookie recipes with a bit of a spin. I decided to play around in the kitchen and see if I could make a Gluten Free version of them. I was also curious what would happen if I substituted a Coconut Sugar for Granulated Sugar. The Results? I could Not keep anyone out of the Cookie Jar this weekend!

Here is what you will need:

-1 1/2 Cups Gluten Free Rolled Oats

-1 Cup Brown Rice Flour

-1/2 Cup Coconut Flour

-2 tsp Baking Powder

-1/4 tsp Baking Soda

-1/2 tsp Xantham Gum

-3/4 tsp Salt

-3/4 tsp Cinnamon

-1 Cup Packed Brown Sugar

-1/2 Cup Coconut Sugar

-1/2 Cup (1 Stick) of Butter, Softened

-1 Egg

-2 tsp Vanilla Extract

-1 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips

-1 Banana, cut into 1/4 inch pieces

To Make:

1. Place rack in center of oven and preheat to 375 degrees.

2. Combine the Oats, Flours, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, Xantham Gum, Cinnamon, & Salt in Medium Bowl and set aside.

3. In Large Bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the Butter and Sugars until combined, about 1 minute.

4. Add the Egg and Vanilla Extract and beat until Blended.

5. Slowly add Flour Mixture, 1 cup at a time, use low speed on mixer to blend.

6. Next, gently fold in Chocolate Chips and Banana with a wooden spoon.

7.  Place rounded tablespoonfuls of the dough onto a lined baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Try to make sure there is a piece of banana and chocolate chip in each one.

8. Next, use the palm of your hand or the bottom of a glass to gently flatten the mounds of dough.

9. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes, or until Cookies begin to slightly brown on the bottom.

10. Transfer the Cookies to a wire rack to cool.
