Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies:

My mom and I LOVE oatmeal cookies, and these were chewy and delicious! 
I think they would even be good without the chocolate chips!
Make sure you don't bake them longer than the directions say, though, because they have to sit on the cookie sheet for a few minutes, and that causes them to continue to bake!
I hope you try them out!!

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 & 1/4 cups flour
1 & 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups quick oats
1 cup chocolate chips, optional
1 cup chopped nuts, optional

In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add vanilla and mix well. Combine flour, xanthan gum, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix just until combined. Add oats, nuts and chocolate chips. Mix just until combined. You don't want to over mix these. Drop onto cookie sheets. Bake at 325 degrees for 12 minutes. They may seem like they aren't done, but go ahead and take them out. Let cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

-Swap out the chocolate chips for butterscotch or peanut butter chips for something really different.
-This makes approximately 3-1/2 dozen.
