Tastes Like Mom’s Oatmeal Cookies


I was SO EXCITED to make these, after I bought gluten-free oats!

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix well in mixing bowl.

1-1/2 cups gluten-free flour (1/2 cup of three different gluten-free flours)
3 cups gluten-free oats
1 teaspoon guar gum
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Use spatula on sides to get dry ingredients well mixed in. Add one cup raisins OR chocolate chips, and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional). Mix well. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees about 10-12 minutes.

For kids on a dairy free diet, use shortening instead of butter. Bake 2-5 minutes less time.

I just made these the dairy-free way. They are delicious and taste so much better than any of the GF/CF cookies at the store. I would never guess they had ingredients that are different than any other oatmeal cookie.

I made these for my GF/SF/CF 4yr old tonight. I think these might be the best oatmeal cookies I’ve ever had – GF or not! Thank you so much for posting this!
