Unconventional Oatmeal Cookies (gf)


This recipe was so unique,
I just had to give it a go.
So many delicious ingredients
that I never thought to put together before.
But Jami Boys, at An Oregon Cottage did.
Many of her recipes have found their way 
We like to pass the good stuff along.


 Oat flour was made by simply placing oats in the blender
and whizzing away until the right consistency was obtained.
As no flour is used, these yummies are gluten-free.


With a mix of nut butter, seeds, nuts and chocolate chips,
they were bound to be good.


Chocolate Chip, Nut & Seed Oatmeal Cookies (GF)
Jami Boys

1/4 C butter
1/4 C nut butter (we used Sunbutter)
2/3 C brown sugar (we used coconut sugar)
3 T honey
1 egg
1 t vanilla
1 1/4 C oat flour (we made our own)
3/4 C whole rolled oats
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/2 C chopped nuts (we used pecans)
1/3 C sunflower seeds
2 T flax seed meal
1/2 C chocolate chips

Beat butter, nut butter, sugar and honey in a large bowl until smooth.  
Add egg and vanilla and mix until incorporated.
To the mixture, add oat flour, oatmeal, soda, powder and salt; 
stir just until mixed well before folding in 
the nuts, seeds, flax meal and chocolate chips.
Heat oven to 350 degrees and line sheet pan with parchment paper.
Drop cookies a tablespoon at a time onto prepared sheets,
flattening slightly.
Bake 8-10 minutes, then let cool on sheet pan 5 minutes
before transferring to cool on cooling rack.
Makes 3 dozen.
Enjoy!
