Gluten-free recipe for beginners: oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

Gluten-free oat chocolate biscuits - the perfect snack for in between:

Sufficient for approx. 30 pieces


  • 80 g Ruut cassava flour , or gluten-free oat flour
  • 110 g gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 110g softened butter
  • 90 grams of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 handful of choco chips


Put all the ingredients in a large bowl and start mixing them together. Knead the dough well with your hands before forming about 30 small balls . Place the balls on two parchment-lined baking sheets and flatten them, about 3mm to 5mm, with a wet spoon (or your fingers). This keeps the biscuits nice and crunchy after baking and they are perfect for an upcoming movie night or your afternoon snack, among other things.

After you have flattened the biscuits, put them in the oven at 180 °C, top and bottom heat, and let them bake for nine minutes . To ensure that you get evenly baked cookies, you should bake each tray individually. After baking, it is best to let the biscuits cool down on the baking sheet for a few minutes before placing them on a wire rack.

Once the oatmeal cookies have cooled, the delicious cookies will stay crispy in the cookie jar for at least a week . So, what are you waiting for? Even if you are a beginner, get on the stove and conjure up a delicious gluten-free snack for you, your family or your friends!

If you have opted for the savory version, you can add the fresh, chopped herbs to your dough in this step. Now you can preheat a frying pan on medium temperature .

Use some oil for frying and then put around 60 ml of batter in the hot pan . Swirl the dough in the pan until it's about 6 inches in diameter. Now fry the pancake for about 3 to 4 minutes, turning it regularly , until it is golden brown on both sides. Be sure to reduce the heat if the pancake gets too dark.

Set the finished pancake aside and repeat the process until the batter is used up and all the pancakes are baked. If necessary, you can add some oil to the pan before each pancake to fry.

When all the pancakes are baked, you can top and decorate them as you like . In addition to rocket and ham, cream cheese with wild salmon is also a popular combination for a savory version.
