Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Millet Cookies {Gluten Free, Low Fat}

My hubby created another awesome cookie recipe that got some rave reviews. These cookies have a moist cake-like texture and great flavor all while being gluten free. These aren't your ordinary chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. The sorghum and millet flours offer a great subtle sweetness and nuttiness and an unripe banana (bright yellow with a little green still) adds a light and moist texture without the fat.  Hulled millet is not just for birds. It's a healthy, easily digested whole grain that's high in protein and fiber and adds a great nutty crunch. These are tasty, you may need to make two batches. Enjoy!



Recipe: (makes 28-30 cookies)
Dry ingredients:
1/4 cup millet flour
1/4 cup hulled millet
1 cup sorghum flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
2 1/2 cup quick-cook oats (not instant)
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Wet ingredients:
1/4 cup butter (room temperature)
1 banana (not yet ripe)  *a very ripe banana will impart more banana flavor and result in a less fluffy cookie
1-1/2 cup brown sugar (loosely packed)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350'F. In a electric mixer, cream butter, banana and sugar together on medium speed for 1-2 minutes. At medium-low speed add eggs one at a time then add the vanilla.
2. In a separate bowl whisk dry ingredients together, except chocolate chips. With your mixer on low speed add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients slowly in 3 parts allowing each part to be fully combined before adding the next. Lastly fold in the chocolate chips.
3. Using a small cookie scoop or tablespoon, spoon dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, space at least 2 inches apart. Bake at 350'F for 12-14 minutes or until slightly brown on top. Remove, let cool and firm up on the baking sheet.
