chChocolate Chip Cookies are my very favorite cookie.   The maple syrup in this recipe adds to this cookie’s great flavor too.

I know many people are trying to cut down on their gluten, so I tried this with oat flour and they were terrific. Give it a try. Just take 2 cups of oatmeal (not the instant style) and place them in the blender and blend to flour consistency. You can try half wheat flour and half oat also.



TEDEd is excellent for any beginner chef, it explains the cookie ingredients and how they work together so well.
