I like to use a combination of almond flour for dry ingredients. the It helps cookies get that golden color and chewy texture. It is my secret ingredient in many baked goods!

If you are not a coconut lover, you can also skip the coconut and add a little more oatmeal. Cookies are delicious either way!

Is old-fashioned oatmeal gluten-free?

Oatmeal is inherently gluten-free, however they are often grown in conjunction with gluten-containing grains and cross-contaminated. When baking gluten-free, be sure to choose certified gluten-free oatmeal.

This is a common mistake when it comes to gluten-free. Unless oats specifically say they are gluten free, they are not. My favorite brand of safe gluten-free oatmeal is.

Tips for delicious gluten-free cookies

  • Gluten-free 1: 1 baking flour: Be sure to use one containing xathan gum to bind cookies.
  • Almond flour: For chewy texture and delicious taste (you can use GF all-purpose flour instead if you have a nut allergy)
  • Butter / coconut oil: The combination of these two works very well in these cookies!
  • Gluten-free oatmeal: Use certified GF oatmeal to keep these cookies gluten-free.
  • 1 hour of rest: Give flour time to hydrate and avoid grit

Can I freeze these?

This recipe makes a large number of cookies that is ideal for a crowd. You can also mix the dough and scoop out cookie dough balls to freeze for later. I usually freeze them on a plate and then transfer them to a ziplock bag once they are frozen.

You can bake these cookies directly from the freezer, just add 1-2 minutes to the baking time and be careful – this cookie dough is highly addictive!

TIP: Freeze extra tablespoons of dough on a plate and then transfer them to a ziplock for storage for later.

Recipe Notes

MAKE IT NUT-FREE: Add an additional 1/4 cup of gluten-free 1: 1 baking flour in place of the almond flour. DO IT DAIRY-FREE: Use Earth Balance buttery sticks instead of butter.

  • It is very important to let this dough rest in the refrigerator for at least an hour before baking. This allows the cookie dough to absorb the gluten-free flours so that the cookies do not have a grainy taste. It also allows the butter and coconut oil to solidify so that the cookies don't spread too much during cooking.
  • This dough freezes great! Simply scoop rounds of the dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze. Frozen dumplings can be baked directly from the freezer. Just add 1-2 minutes to the baking time.
