The World's Best Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

A few months back when I officially gave up gluten, I was trying to create a great chocolate chip cookie recipe. I'm generally not a fan of the All-purpose gluten free flour mixes, and prefer to use other one-ingredient flours instead.

For this particular recipe, I took my normal, go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe and decided to try it with the MASSIVE Costco 10 pound box of oats I had on hand. I took a few cups of the oats and added them to my blender to create oat flour. You could buy oat flour as well, but it's just so easy to make your own. And probably a fraction of the price! For this recipe I also left out most of the white sugar and used mostly brown sugar instead as I like the "hominess" it offers.

I'm confidant that you too will love this recipe! Try not eating five cookies in a row! (My record is seven...)

Nothing better than fresh-from-the-oven warm cookies!

Bake on ungreased, naked sheet pans for 10-11 minutes, or until they start to darken and the edges harden.
