Gluten Free Ranger Cookies - Healthy style

Yes, I love desserts, and we eat way too many of them at our house!  Because we eat so many, I make them as healthy as possible and then rationalize that I can eat a dozen in one sitting.  So, although this is a cookie, I can happily say that they are made of 100% whole grain, no starch, reduced fat and sugar - and of course they are delicious. Plus they are dairy & soy free as well.   These are my gluten eating neighbor's favorite cookie!
Ranger Cookies

½ c. shortening(Spectrum)
1 c. brown sugar
½ c. sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1/3 c. millet flour
1/3 c. teff flour
1/3 c. sorghum flour
½ c. gf oat flour
1 t. xanthan gum
2 t. baking soda
½ t. baking powder
2 c. gf rolled oats
2 c. gf rice krispies
Chocolate chips, m&m’s, Craisins, or whatever you want

 In a large mixing bowl, cream the shortening & sugars.  Beat in the eggs and vanilla.  In another small bowl sift together the flours, xanthan gum, soda, and powder.  Stir flour mixture into sugar mixture.  Stir in oats.  Stir in Rice Krispies, and then stir in chocolate chips.  The dough will be crumbly, because there isn't really a lot of dough to hold all the stuff together.  Just pack it into your cookie scoop and bake at 350 for 10 min. Makes 4 dozen.
