Wowie Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies were amazing! The recipe was on the back of the bag of gluten free oats we got recently (the brand is Gifts of Nature). I made some minor changes, including the chocolate chips of course! It was a pretty easy recipe too.

Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 cup Earth Balance
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar or xylitol
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg
1/2 cup rice flour
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups gluten free oats
1/2 cup dried fruit or dairy free chocolate chips (optional)

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat Earth Balance and sugars together until smooth.
Add vanilla and egg; beat well.
Add flours, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; mix well.
Stir in oats and optional additions.
Drop rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
Cool 1 minute, then remove to wire rack.

Makes about 2 dozen.
