Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe
This weekend my family gathered to remember the life of my loving grandmother. As hard as the past few days have been, we try and feel comfort having our family and friends by our side. I got to spend some quality time with my siblings. When my younger brother came across my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies, he immediately requested a healthy version of Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies (his favorite), and of course I set out to do just that. What’s more comforting than a nice chewy oatmeal cookie with a glass of almond milk? Not much! And these cookies will not disappoint!
- Softened butter or coconut oil
- Coconut sugar
- Vanilla extract
- Unsweetened applesauce
- Gluten-free rolled oats
- Almond flour
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Chocolate chips (optional)
How to Make Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
These cookies are made with a mixer to get that butter light and fluffy. And then the rest of the ingredients are added in. As with most recipes that involve creaming softened butter, it’s best if the rest of the ingredients are around room temperature, like the eggs, that way it doesn’t make the butter too cold and appear curdled.
- Cream the butter and sugar
- Add the eggs
- Finely process half of the oats
- Add the dry ingredients into the wet, and beat.
- Fold in raisins and chocolate chips, and bake!
