Oat Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

You can grind your own oat flour, it is cheap and easy.  Just put oats in processor and buzz away to a fine flour.  I use a magic bullet, I have had for years.  Easy to clean too.  They are still available to purchase and less expensive then they were over ten years ago.

The photos below are the first try at this recipe, believe it or not,  the flat cookies were really good too. They flattened out and ran together, I cut them  with the spatula to separate.  I actually liked them better, is was like the less oat flour let the other ingredients come through with more flavor, the buttery taste.  

I started the recipe with one cup of oat flour, I added 1/3 cup more oat flour to the recipe so they wouldn’t flatten out, basically I experiment with measurements when I try new recipe ideas, you can too, just don’t add to much flour they will taste more like biscuits!
