Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies

Did you know you can use our Libre Naturals bulk oatmeal in cookies? It’s already got all sorts of yummy goodies like fruit and/or raw seeds to add flavor and nutrition. And since it’s already got cane sugar in it, you’ll only need to mix in a smaller amount of soft brown sugar to get a delectable cookie your family will love:

Recipe:
1 cup butter/alternative, softened
3/4 cup soft brown sugar
1 egg/alternative
2 cups Libre Naturals bulk gluten free oatmeal of your choice
1.5 cups flour/alternative (we used gluten free oat flour)*
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt 1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup Libre Naturals 55% cocoa organic mini chocolate chips (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cream the butter, sugar and egg together
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the all dry ingredients (including xanthan gum, if using) except chocolate chips until well mixed
  4. Add dry to wet
  5. Mix well
  6. Mix in chocolate chips, if using
  7. Drop onto parchment lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 8 minutes for soft cookies, 10 minutes for firm

*If making a gluten free cookie, we use 2 tsp of xanthan gum for a less fragile cookie.

Enjoy!
