Questions about Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies
How to make Chocolate Chip Oat cookies . To make Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies, you will need just 4 ingredients: oats (ground up into a flour in the blender), peanut butter, maple syrup and chocolate chips. Heat the maple syrup and peanut butter together until a runny mixture results. Add in the flour and form into a dough. Fold in the chocolate chips and make into balls. Flatten these slightly then bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
Are oats gluten-free? Oats are generally free of gluten, but due to their processing methods, they are produced in the same factories as other gluten-containing grains so there is a possibility that they will have been contaminated with gluten. Oats that state they are gluten-free have usually undergone more stringent measures to ensure they do not contain gluten so are generally safe for those avoiding it in their diets.
Can cookies be frozen? These cookies can be frozen, though their texture may not be identical as when they were first prepared. However, they can be popped into the oven for a couple of minutes to get that fresh-baked texture and taste.
Can oats be replaced with another flour in this recipe? It is possible to switch oats to another flour, but depending on the type used, the recipe may need slight alterations to ingredient quantities, though cooking time and cooking temperature can most likely remain the same.
