Never have I ever come across a gluten free cookie that could be described in this way. I was losing hope that a chewy GF cookie even existed! But look no further! This is an easy recipe with cookies that will be enjoyed by all.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Makes: Approximately 20 cookies
Ingredients 115g butter, softened or melted in microwave if you've forgotten to pre-soften it
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp of vanilla – If you’re a vanilla fiend like ma and like drop or 2 extra
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 heaped tsp salt
2 1/4 cup oat flour – you can make your own by grinding up oats with a coffee grinder or similar
3/4 cup chocolate chip – or substitute for nuts, dried fruit or a mixture of your favourites
Pre-heat oven to 175°C.
In a large bowl mix together butter and both sugars. Add egg and vanilla and mix until well combined.
In a medium bowl (or your measuring jug to reduce washing up) mix flour, baking soda and salt. Add to wet ingredients in 2-3 lots stirring until well combined.
Your basic cookie mixture should look similar to this
Mix chocolate chips through. Combine well so you don't end up with any chocolate-less cookies.
Roll approx 1 tablespoon of mixture into small balls. Place on lined tray and flatten slightly.
Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until edges become slightly golden. If you take the cookies out while the centre is pale the cookies will be soft and gooey and just melt in your mouth.
