These sound really yummy! I’ve yet to get ahold of gf oatmeal, it’s so expensive here!
So these were made without flour?! That’s good news for me! Oh how exhausting it can be to mix all those flours when baking gf :P.

Betty, I never added any nuts! I bet that’d be great in these…next time. 😉
Sophie, no flour is right. Just GF oats, which are expensive, but like I said, open up a whole bunch of new recipes, when you can use them. Plus, it’s nice to have something where you don’t have to add xanthan gum or worry about the texture. lol Splurge on you…you deserve the oats! 🙂

This post made me realize how long its been since I’ve made regular chocolate chip cookies. I’ve been experimenting so much with trying to make new and exciting things and replicating girl scout cookies, I forgot all about the classic goodness of a chocolate chip cookie. They look delicious and I love the use of oats!

You list white syrup as an ingredient. Is that corn syrup?

Sorry, Summer, I guess I forgot a word there. 🙂Yes, it is white corn syrup. I updated the recipe. Thanks for catching that. 🙂

I'm making these right now and I forgot to add the brown sugar before I put the first tray of them in the oven. I went back and mixed it in (melted it a bit first so it WOULD mix in). The ones without the brown sugar came out nicely-good shape, good size-but didn't taste that great. The next batch became an entire sheet of very flat cookie madness! I had to break them into ugly, but tasty, sections. I only put 8 on the next sheet and they spaced out better but are still very expansive and very, very flat. Is that just because I messed up the ingredients and had to go back and add the brown sugar later? Or is it more likely because I live at 7000 ft? :o/

Hi Sarar,it could be because of mixing the batter around. It could be because you "melted it a bit first". If you're having a problem with the cookies spreading too much, it's a good idea to chill your dough before baking. Warming it up would make the margarine soften & melt before baking.Plus, altitude could play a part in this as well. HTH!

I love how easy these are–my 7 year old helped me make them–and so yummy! I love that they dont have any flour in them, too. 🙂

You are so thoughtful to take something like this to your friend in the hospital. Each time I have been in the hospital with a new baby, I’m stunned at how little I’m able to eat there. I pretty much lived on fruit each time. Would have been so fun if someone brought me these! 😉 will be trying the recipe with my kids soon.

Aw, thanks, Rebekah! I wasn’t diagnosed with celiacs when I had my kiddos (only time I’ve been in the hospital), but I recall that the breakfasts were toast, cereal and really nasty oatmeal. I can’t imagine them being much more creative now. You’d think that at a hospital is the one place you COULD get a decent (and safe) GF meal.
Hope your kids enjoy the cookies! 🙂

I actually use my medium cookie scoop, which would be about 2 tablespoons, so it would be drop by tablespoons, sorry!
I believe you should get 2 1/2 to 3 dozen cookies.

These are super easy to make. They turned out great. Kids love them (even non-gf kids)!

So glad to hear that the kiddos loved them, MK! Mine gobble them up too. What’s not to love? 😉
