Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies from Spinach Tiger

I’m happy to say that this gluten free oatmeal cookies recipe is just as good as any oatmeal cookie recipe I’ve baked. I’ve made a few different oatmeal cookies recipe here at Spinach Tiger, but only today it occurred to me to ice them the old fashioned way. This means that the cookie dough recipe does not have a lot of sugar, because the glaze is plenty sweet.

Then I made them again and browned the oats which took them yet to another level. Both ways are good. Toasting the oats give them more interest, more nutty flavor.

Options for Old Fashioned Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies Recipe with Icing

  • Make them with browned butter or toast oats in butter.
  • Add dried fruit, raisins.
  • Add nuts, almond butter or peanut butter.
  • Add chocolate chips.

Unlike some of my gluten free baking, I got lucky and this recipe worked for me the very first time.

The texture is more cake than crisp, but that’s what I wanted. I remembered an oatmeal cookie that I would purchase one at a time at a little grocery store called Ma n Pa’s in Long Beach California which sells prepared food. I looked them up and they are still there, but I don’t know if they still make their legendary oatmeal cookie. Sometimes I would stop in there just to get that cookie.

I like these because you can freeze the dough, freeze the cookies and keep on hand for snacks.

Let’s connect. I would love for you to come back for more gluten free baked goods and so many healthy choices. You’ll find such a variety of delicious food here. Please subscribe and never miss a recipe.

  1. I agree with the toasting. Whether it is toasting nuts or oatmeal the flavor certainly improves. Your cookies look scrumptious! I like that you decreased the sugar in the cookie and just let the sweetness come from the icing. YUM!
