Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Chippers (Gluten-Free)

To make them gluten-free, you need to use gluten-free oats, otherwise old fashioned rolled oats work great. They’re healthier than most regular oatmeal chocolate chip cookies since they’re made with no white flour, all oats, just a little light butter, and dark chocolate chips.

Makes 50 cookies total

Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Chippers Gluten Free

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons light butter, melted (I used Smart Balance Light Butter and Canola Oil Blend or Smart Balance Light)
  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats or gluten-free oats, see shopping tips
  • 1 (14 oz) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips, I used Ghirardelli 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Parchment paper for baking, see shopping tips

Instructions

  • 1. In a large bowl, add melted butter. Stir in remaining ingredients. Mix well to combine all ingredients.
  • 2. Refrigerate batter for at least 30 minutes so it’s easier to handle. The batter is not your typical cookie batter.
  • 3. To Bake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
    Using a tablespoon, scoop 1 level tablespoon for each cookie and add to the pan. When scooped it creates a little blob of batter. You’ll need to squish each cookie together a bit.  It does hold together once baked.
  • 4. Place both trays in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes. Rotate trays and bake for an additional 8-10 minutes or until light golden brown. Total bake time, 18-20 minutes. If you have batter left, bake remaining cookies.
  • 5. Store cooled cookies in an airtight container or plastic bag. These cookies freeze great, too. In fact, my favorite way to eat them is frozen!
