Giant Chocolate Chunk Cookies

1/2 c. dairy free butter/margarine
1 t. chia seeds in 2 T. warm water
generous 1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 c. gluten free all-purpose flour
1 1/2 c. oat flour
1/4 c. ground flaxseed meal
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
egg replacer equivalent of 1 egg
2 t. vanilla extract
1 c. vegan dark chocolate chunks (Whole Foods has its own 365 Value brand) or bittersweet chocolate chips

Stir chia seeds into water and set aside to form gel. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt the dairy-free butter/margarine over low heat, remove from heat and stir in the sugars, whisking until no lumps remain. Sift together the flours, baking soda, salt and ground flaxseed meal. Flaxseed will be left in the sifter, just dump it into the flour mixture and stir to incorporate. In a medium bowl, prepare egg replacer, then stir in vanilla extract and chia gel. Stir into butter/sugar mixture and whisk until smooth. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix until a soft dough forms. Stir in chocolate chunks. Using clean hands, form balls of dough and place on cookie sheet, leaving about 2 inches between cookies. Flatten slightly with hands. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring to wire rack.
