You can snack on these cookies knowing that they are healthy and not so bad for you compared to a regular chocolate chip cookie.

I found this recipe in the Cooking Light Gluten-free Baking cookbook.

Make sure when making these that you flatten them when placing on the cookie sheet before baking. I made the mistake of not doing that and they didn’t look as nice but still tasted good though.

Here is what you need:

* 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 tsp. xanthan gum

* 1 tsp. baking powder

* 1/2 tsp. baking soda

* 1/4 teaspoon salt

*3/4 cup granulated sugar

* 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

*1/3 cup butter, softened

* 2 tsp. vanilla extract

* 1 large egg

* 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

* 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate mini chips ( I used regular size chips)

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  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 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 chips.
  4. Drop dough be level (flatten cookies ) table spoonfuls  2 inches apart onto baking sheets lined with parchement paper. Bake for 10 minutes or until edges of cookies begin to brown. Cool 5 minutes on pans. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks. Serves 39
