Chewy and gooey with brittle edges is an advantage of cooking with oats instead of wheat. In order to get the same chewiness with wheat flour you have to use more butter. The chewy gooey to butter ration with oat flour is better. These chocolate chip cookies are packed with healthy gluten free ingredients so you can feel good about serving them. They are a great choice for healthy entertaining. You can also add variety with granola or differentiate textures with cocoa nibs or chunks of chocolate. They are really easy to make and deliciously customizable. For a fun sugar twist sprinkle powdered sugar on top. And wait until you warm one up and put a scoop of ice cream next to it. Brittle, warm chewy gooey, and ice cream.
Oats also possess a high amount of dietary fiber, which is essential for healthy digestion. Due to the high fiber content in oats, it can be said that they have a cholesterol-lowering effect helping to lower the chance of heart disease.
