What else would one bake for National Oatmeal Cookie Day but oatmeal cookies. This variation tries to keep the cookies relatively healthy and, with the addition of chia seeds, probably comes closer than many other versions being touted as a healthy dessert. They are also gluten free so I can bring some to my daughter to enjoy!

Servings: 2 dozen
Author: Linda Warren
Ingredients
  • 2-1/4 cups gluten free old fashioned oats, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon gluten free cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon gluten free baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup pecans, chopped
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Grind 3/4 cup gluten-free oats in coffee grinder or blender. In a small bowl combine the ground oats with cornstarch, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and chia seeds. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl with electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add egg and vanilla and continue beating until well incorporated.
  4. Lower mixer speed and add remaining 1-1/2 cups whole old fashioned oats. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans.
  5. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheets. It will be a little sticky but no worries. Do not flatten just leave in mounds.
  6. Bake in oven 18 minutes then remove to wire rack to cool for 2-3 minutes. Carefully, using metal spatula, remove from cookie sheets and place on wire racks to cool completely. They will get crisper as they cool.
