    Total Time: 1 day

    1/2 cup rolled oats, quick cooking
    2-1/4 cups gluten free general purpose baking flour
    1 tsp. Xanthan Gum
    1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
    1 tsp. sea salt
    1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    1 cup butter, softened
    3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    2 tsp. vanilla
    1/2 tsp. lemon juice
    2 eggs
    3 cups semi-sweet, chocolate chips
    1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts

    Note: If you use regular flour instead of the gluten free flour then delete the Xanthan Gum. You can also try hazelnut flour instead of ground rolled oats to make the recipe more gluten free and give it a slightly different flavor.

    Grind oats in a food processor or blender until fine. Combine the ground oats with the flour, Xanthan Gum, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl.

    Cream together the butter, sugars, vanilla, and lemon juice in another medium bowl with an electric mixer. Add the eggs and mix until smooth. Stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture and blend well. Add the chocolate chips and nuts to the dough and mix by hand until ingredients are well blended.

    For the best results, chill the dough overnight in the refrigerator before baking the cookies. Spoon rounded 1/4 cup portions onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Place the scoops about 2 inches apart. Bake in a 350°F oven for 16-18 minutes or until cookies are light brown and soft in the middle. Store in a sealed container when cool to keep
