Nothing’s better on a chilly day than to cuddle up with your little ones and munch on freshly-baked cookies. 

In need of a good gluten-free option? This GF oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe has turned into one of my all-time favorites!  

Even if no one in your family has a gluten sensitivity, my guess is these cookies will be a hit. 

So, grab your little helper ... and let’s get baking! 

Of course, don't forget to nab a photo or two of your kids’ cute fingers covered in cookie batter and adorable sticky chocolate faces.


1/2 cup butter room temperature

3/4 cup dark brown sugar

1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 large egg room temperature

1 1/4 cup ground old fashioned oats (Place about 2 cups old fashioned oats in food processor or blender and grind until you have a flour consistency)

1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats left whole

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Beat butter and brown sugar together until fluffy. (Use mixer or vigorously beat by hand.)

Beat in the vanilla and egg.

Stir in the ground oats, whole oats, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.

Mix until well combined.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, pack dough into the 1/4 cup and turn out dough onto greased baking sheet - no more than 6 cookies on each baking sheet.

Bake immediately in preheated oven until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cookies cool.

Transfer to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling. 

Grab some hot cocoa and whipped cream ... and enjoy!
