Chocolate Chips with a Twist

May 7, 2012 § Leave a comment

The hubs and I participated in a Half Marathon this past weekend and I had to share the cookies I made for pre and post race energy. They were Ah-Maz-Balls (a little Giuliana shout-out)! I originally started my search for a cookie recipe that called for oat flour, as that was all I had on hand, and I ended up finding a recipe from Eat Drink Better that satisfied my sweet tooth while being gluten free, vegan (depending on any modifications) and healthy. Since oats are gentle on the tummy and a good source of complex carbs to provide energy, I am happy to say these cookies have instantly become my game day go to snack.

Oat Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 cups oat flour plus 1 cup whole oats (use certified gluten free oats for cookies to be 100% gf)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup vegan margarine
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup canola or sunflower seed oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • Cooking Directions
    1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F and grease a baking tray.
    2.  Mix oat flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Add margerine and oil and stir until mixed. If the mixture is too dry, add a tablespoon of soy milk. Add chocolate chips last and mix.
    3. Roll tablespoon-sized balls of dough and flatten them with the back of a wet spoon on your baking tray. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
