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!
Certified gluten free oats are critical:
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.
Add all of the dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend. You can use dark chocolate chips, bittersweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, and even white chocolate chips! Choose your favorite!!
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.

⏲️ Baking time:
Bake these cookies at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack.
