Flourless Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies are a simple and delicious cookie. They are also easy to make gluten free.
I love flourless cookies. Flourless chocolate cookies are a favorite at our house that I have been making for years.
Today I am sharing a new favorite flourless cookie. Flourless Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies. These are so good!
I recently took these cookies to a small group meeting at our church and three people asked me for the recipe.
I have been experimenting with this recipe. I changed it up and was not quite sure I had it right, but I think it is a sign that the recipe is perfect when three people ask you for the recipe.
One of the reasons I like flourless cookies is because they are regular food that happens to be gluten free. Now these cookies do contain oats, so you have to use gluten free oats to make them gluten free. But they are regular cookies, so no one will know that they are gluten free.
They taste just like a normal cookie would. I love recipes like that!
A simple flourless oatmeal cookies
- 2/3 cup butter melted
- 3 cups quick cooking oats (I use gluten free quick oats)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar firmly packed
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups chocolate chips
In a bowl stir together by hand butter, sugar, brown sugar, salt, eggs, and vanilla. Do not use a mixer, these are better mixed by hand.
Stir in oatmeal until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.
Refrigerate dough for several hours. Do not skip this step or the dough will spread while baking.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
From dough into balls using about 2 tablespoons of dough. Place on baking sheet and bake for 11-13 minutes.
Let cool on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes or until cookies are set and easy to remove. Finish cooling on wire rack.
I made these as a little treat this afternoon. They are so yummy! I used plant-based butter (Country Crock, Almond oil butter) and allergen free chocolate chips. This is such an easy, quick to put together recipe! Thank you so much!
I am so glad that you enjoyed them! And I am glad to know that the plant based butter worked. Thanks so much for letting me know.
I personally chose not to leave my oven preheated for “several hours.” 😜 I halved the sugar (both types), and these cookies were great in taste and texture! 🙏
I am so glad that you enjoyed the cookies. I just fixed that in the recipe. You are right, you don’t need to preheat the oven for hours. 🙂
