Oatmeal Cookies, Gluten, Dairy, and Refined-Sugar FREE

Update: HELLO friends from Pinterest. I hope you like this recipe 🙂 If you like this – you’ll probably also like my recipe for chocolate banana flax muffins. Enjoy!

The first week of being dairy free (for Miss Lulu’s lil’ eczema problem) was rough. And then I discovered Silk Vanilla Almond Milk. And Life was better.

But I still miss cheese.

Anyway.
I’ve had a non-pregnancy related craving for oatmeal cookies. So I found a recipe, busted out my GF oats, and got mixin’.

Instead of margarine or butter, I use coconut oil. Instead of brown sugar I use honey. And the flour mix I use is Pamela’s GF Bread mix and flour blend.

Ok. Here are the cookies:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

First, preheat your oven to 350. I always forget to do this until my cookies are mixed. And then I have to wait even LONGER for my cookies. So, don’t forget. Preheat your oven FIRST.

1 3/4 c. flour mix of your choice
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Put all the dry stuff in a bowl and mix with the nearest clean fork.

1/2 cup coconut oil (melted in the microwave for 20 seconds, or until clear)
3/4-1 cup honey, depending on how sweet you want it
1 tbsp vanilla
2 large eggs OR 2 tbsp milled flax seed, mixed with 4 tbsp H2O

Mix all the wet stuff together, if you use the flax seed – make sure you really really mix it well. It takes a minute to emulsify the oil and honey together.

Mix the wet stuff and the dry stuff together. Then add:

3-3 1/2 cups GF oatmeal.

Fold in. And if you want raisins or other stuff add:

1 cup raisins or chocolate chips or chopped pecans (OPTIONAL)

I made 16 big cookies. 8 on each silpated or parchment papered pan.

Bake for 12-15 minutes.
I love the smell of warm honey. Its very fragrant. Reminds me of Burt’s Bees baby wash I use for Miss Lulu.

Nice smelling babies. Cookies. PB and Honey Sandwiches. Honey on Pancakes. Honey on biscuits. These are all good things. Use more honey.

Enjoy your awesome, yummy gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, and possibly egg-free deliciousness.
Allergy Friendly food can still be good food. Promise.

    Where do you buy your coconut oil? I have found some at Kroger that is about $5-$7 for … oh I dont’ know how much is in that tub! I also mail ordered for some that tastes WAY WAY better than Kroger’s but it cost an arm and leg. Really, I’m nearly armless and legless now 🙂 Just wondered if you had a good source. I’d love to use it more in my cooking and baking.

    Those look really good! My son has an eczema problem, too. Unfortunately, he comes by it honestly, I’ve battled it for years. I never thought about going dairy free for it?!?!

    I think these make great breakfast cookies. Not too sweet and they stick to your ribs.

  • crystal  says:

    when i tried to make these, the “dough” was so dry and crumbly it was impossible to make any sort of ball or shape. i followed the directions exactly. what may have gone wrong? anyway i added a little almond milk to moisten it a bit so fingers crossed.

    • Fannie  says:

      Crystal, I hope they worked for you with the extra almond milk! What kind of flour did you use? I don’t know how the recipe would turn out with regular white or wheat flour – let me know.

    • Demetree Robinson  says:

      The same thing happened to me. I’m going to use the dough to make apple crisp since it’s crumbly. I think the amount of flour is too much. I think it should be 3/4 c. flour instead of 1 3/4. I’m going to try again. I hope someone is reading these comments.

    Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe. I made a batch of these cookies a few days ago and they were a big hit in our household. My modifications were: omitted the nutmeg. Substituted the honey with brown rice syrup (allergic to honey), and substituted the eggs with 1/2 cup of applesauce. The coconut oil gave it a delicious nutty flavor. I will surely make these again.
