Oatmeal, Chocolate, and Walnut Cookies

Chewy oatmeal and crunchy walnuts can completely transform the typical lunch box chocolate chip cookie, adding new flavors and texture while subtly increasing the cookie’s nutritional value.
  • Yield: Serves 39 (serving size: 1 cookie)

Ingredients

  • 2.3 ounces brown rice flour (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1.3 ounces white rice flour (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1.3 ounces potato starch (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1.15 ounces cornstarch (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1 cup certified gluten-free quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate minichips

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 375°.

2. Weigh or lightly spoon flours, potato starch, and cornstarch into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, potato starch, cornstarch and next 5 ingredients in a bowl; stir with a whisk.

3. Place granulated sugar, brown sugar, and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Beat in vanilla and egg. Gradually add flour mixture, beating at low speed until blended. Fold in walnuts and chocolate minichips.
