Stevia Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup flour (I use spelt or a mix of 3/4 spelt 1/4 amaranth)
2 cups regular oats
1 1/2 teaspoon stevia
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup safflower oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Tropical Source Semi-Sweet chocolate chips-The Best!! use as many as you want!
Preheat oven to 325, spray a cookie sheet. Mix flour, stevia and cinnamon in small bowl. Mix oats and baking soda in large bowl. Pour hot water over the oat mixture and mix. Add oil and vanilla to oat mixture, mix well. Add flour mixture to oat mixture, mix well. Add chocolate chips. Place on cookie sheet, they do not flatten so push them down if you want them to be flat or leave as is. Cook 13-15 minutes.
The texture of these cookies changes after a few days (they become soft, you might like this but I prefer them fresh out of the oven). I recommend cooking them in small batches. I don't add all of the chocolate chips at once. I use as much cookie dough as I want and add chips to those and cook them. Refrigerate the dough and add chips as you make each batch. I find that refrigerating the chocolate chips in the dough and then baking them alters the taste. It takes no time at all to have fresh baked cookies!
