Wheat Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

By Sarah Axtell, ND July 24, 2008


These cookies are wheat-free and refined sugar-free and include banana in them for added taste and moisture. They only take 10 minutes to prepare and you likely already have all the ingredients in your kitchen.

Ingredients:
– 1 cup oat flour (put 1 cup oats in your food processor/blender to make oat flour)
-1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
-1/2 tsp. baking powder
-1/3 tsp. baking soda
-1/2 tsp. salt
-1/2 cup honey
-1/3 cup oil or butter (I use melted coconut oil)
-1/3 cup plain soy milk (or coconut or almond milk)
-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
-1 ripe banana, cut into small pieces
-1 egg
-1/4 cup chopped walnuts or other favorite nut
-1/3 cup chocolate chips
*I like to add a little unsweetened shredded coconut.

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl. Whisk together honey, oil, milk, egg, banana and vanilla in a separate bowl. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients; stir to combine. Fold in walnuts and chocolate chips.
2. Oil pan. Scoop dough onto pan. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
