Cookies, Oatmeal Walnut Chocolate Chunk (GF)

Submitted by: ARBUTAMUSE

Introduction

I adapted a recipe from Washburn & Butt's (2007) GF cookbook to come up with this one. The original recipe was oatmeal raisin, and had no oat bran. If you are celiac make sure your oats are from a pure source. I adapted a recipe from Washburn & Butt's (2007) GF cookbook to come up with this one.

Ingredients

    First, cream butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla:

    1 1/2 cup butter, softened
    1 cup granulated sugar
    1 cup brown sugar, packed
    2 eggs
    4 tsp vanilla

    Second, mix the following dry ingredients in a bag, sifter, or bowl to disperse the xanthan gum and baking soda:

    1 1/2 cups oat flour
    1/2 cup tapioca flour (starch)
    1 tsp xanthan gum
    1 1/2 tsp baking soda

    Third, combine the above wet and dry ingredients, then add the following:

    4 cups oats
    1 cup oat bran
    2 cups walnuts
    300 gram extra large dark chocolate bar cut into chunks.


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 F

1st: Cream butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla until fluffy.

2nd: Mix dry ingredients

3rd: Mix creamed ingredients with dry ingredients.

4th: Add oatmeal, walnuts, and chocolate.

5th: Spoon onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 F for approximately 10 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Pull them out when they are browning but still soft on top.

Note: I chop up a medium to generic quality 300g dark chocolate bar( aprox. 3.5" x 12") instead of using chocolate chips. I like the larger chunks, and I find it is often cheaper than buying chocolate chips. The larger chunks make the cookies seem chocolatier even if there is only one per cookie. I usually cut each square in half.
