Gluten Free Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies with Crystallized Ginger

I woke up today feeling terribly nauseous. My love picked up a package of crystallized ginger at the store to naturally help reduce the nausea. Unfortunately, I quickly learned that eating pure crystallized sugar can be difficult due to its powerful flavor. Thankfully, I was able to whip up these cookies in no time, and have fallen in love with this recipe. This may  now be every pregnant women’s dream recipe.

These soft, chewy gluten free cookies are the perfect blend of oats, chocolate and ginger. The smooth chocolate and crisp ginger combination in these cookies will keep you coming back for more.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Yields 24 cookies

Ingredients
3 cups Gluten Free ‘Bob’s Red Mill’ Old Fashioned Oats
1 cup Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
1 tsp salt
t tsp baking soda
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1-1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
1/4 cup honey
2 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup crystallized ginger, finely chopped

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. In food processor or blender, combine oats, flour, salt and baking soda. Pulse until oats are completely chopped, about six-1 second pulses.
3. In large bowl, beat melted butter and brown sugar until fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Add eggs, honey and vanilla, mix about 1 minute. Add oat mixture and stir just until incorporated. Stir in chocolate and ginger.
4. Use two spoons to drop round tablespoons of dough about 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies for 14-16 minutes on the top shelf. Cool on sheets about 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling racks to cool completely. Continue making cookies with remaining dough and cooled sheets.

Store Cookies - To keep cookies fresh, pack the cookies in sealed containers with waxed paper between each layer.

Oatmeal Cookies – I am most definitely going to make this recipe again with white chocolate chips and cranberries. Mix up these cookies by replacing the chocolate chips and ginger with your favorite oatmeal cookie fillings like raisins, nuts and peanut butter chips. Enjoy!

Are Snickers Gluten Free?

Technically yes… According to Snickers website, the company has strict policies on clearly stating the eight most common allergenic foods: milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, soybeans and wheat.

A May contain <allergen>” statement is required to be clearly labeled in the ingredients section on every package for the eight common allergenic foods.

However, barley and rye are not included on the top 8 allergen list. This means barley and rye are not clearly labeled on the ingredients list, and at Mars snacks are at risk for gluten cross-contamination.

Milky Ways have barley, and if Snickers are made on the same equipment as them, the chance for cross-contamination is high enough not to risk for someone with Celiac.

It is important to listen to your body, and decide for yourself what you want to do. Maybe next time instead of grabbing a Snickers, grab a safer gluten free snack instead.
