These coconut gluten free chocolate chip cookies are so easy to make quickly.
My newest strategy to keep up with my kids’ cookie demand is to double the batch so that I can freeze half of the cookies. Lately, I think the kids are catching on to this idea and eating the extra cookies frozen…I have found several half-empty cookie bags in my freezer.
Little cookie thieves. Do your kids do this too?
My kids are becoming notorious for sneaking gluten free chocolate chip cookies and other treats out of the kitchen in record time. It doesn’t even matter what kind of cookie, they steal these Gluten Free Chocolate Cream Sandwich Cookies too!
Why You Must Use Certified Gluten Free Oats
We hope you enjoy these easy chocolate chip oatmeal cookies as much as we do. When you bake recipes that require oats, make sure you use certified gluten free oats!! Cross-contamination of oats is very common and getting sick is just no fun!
There are many brands of certified gluten free oats to choose from.
- Certified gluten free oats
- Gluten free flour blend
- Unsweetened shredded coconut
- Brown sugar
- chocolate chips
Add all of the dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend.
Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. You can make this easy oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe in just one bowl for easy cleanup!
Your gluten free cookie dough should be soft, not firm, like this photo. Use your cookie scoop to drop cookie balls onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
The cookie dough balls are ready to bake. Bake at 350F degrees for 8 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack.
Allow cooling if you have patience :-). Take a bite of these gluten free oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and let me know what you think!!
