Gluten Free Rhubarb Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Note:  I often double this recipe when I want a nice large batch.
Note:  I use organic ingredients to extent possible.

  •  1/2 cup butter, softened
  •  1 1/4 cups coconut sugar
  •  2 large eggs
  •  1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  •  2 1/2 cups stone ground whole grain brown rice flower
  •  1 cup almond flour
  •  1 tsp cinnamon
  •  1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 3 cups rhubarb finely chopped
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • OR 1 cup no sugar-added chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup walnuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees (or 350 degrees if using convection).

In a large bowl, beat butter and coconut sugar until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and blend.

In a separate bowl, mix flours, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt.

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and blend until smooth.

Add oatmeal (add slowly and mix well – you may find that you do not require the full amount but do make as thick as possible) and stir with wooden spoon until well combined.

Add cholate chips and stir well.

Add walnuts and stir well.

Line baking sheets with parchment paper and drop cookies by large spoonful onto paper.  Bake for 9-13 minutes, depending upon size of cookies.
