Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tomorrow is "cookie" day at my kids school. So guess who is baking again today? And Thursday is a birthday party for my son so I will be making cupcakes tomorrow. I am realizing just how many things are centered around foods.

Here is one of our favorite recipes.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/2 Cups
Gluten Free Flour Mix
2 Cups Organic Brown Sugar
2 Free Range Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
1 Cup Organic Butter (2 sticks)
1 tsp Xantham Gum
1 tsp Aluminum Free Baking Soda
1 tsp Celtic Salt
2 Cups Gluten Free Oats (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 - 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips or raisins

Note: If you use raisins and they are a little hard, place them in boiling water for a minute or so and this will soften them. It will also stop them from drawing the moisture out of the cookies.

Mix the sugar, eggs, butter and vanilla in the mixer bowl until blended. Add remaining dry ingredients and mix for 3-5 mins on low/med. Fold in raisins or chocolate chips.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place teaspoons of dough onto parchment paper. Push them down a bit to make them about 1/2" thick and round the edges to make them circular. They will then spread out evenly and make nicely shaped cookies. Bake for 10 mins or until lightly brown on the edges. They will continue to cook on the pan after pulled out of the oven.
