These Oatmeal Cookies are delicious and gluten-free. They’re crisp on the outside, chewy in the inside and have an extra dose of healthy with the addition of chia seeds. Oh, and a decadent touch of dark chocolate chips, ‘cause, why not!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
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.
In a large bowl with electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add egg and vanilla and continue beating until well incorporated.
Lower mixer speed and add remaining 1-1/2 cups whole old fashioned oats. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans.
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.
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.
