Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal cookies like Grandma used to make. These gluten free cookies use old fashioned oats and a hint of cinnamon to create a chewy, flavourful snack.

The first thing I did was dump some Golden Flavour Crisco, brown sugar and granulated sugar into a large mixing bowl.

I used an electric hand mixer to cream the shortening and sugars together.

Then I added the egg and vanilla extract.

Using the electric hand mixer I again beat the batter until it was smooth.

Once the batter was smooth I measured in some oatmeal flour.  I make my own whenever I open a new bag of oats.  I just blend a portion of the bag in my Ninja Blender until it is the consistency of flour.

I also measured in xanthan gum, corn starch, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon and some old fashioned oats.

Using a large rubber spatula I stirred all the ingredients into the batter until they were well combined.

Now I added Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend and stirred again until just combined.

Once the batter was ready I used a 1 tablespoon scoop to drop balls onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

I baked them in a 350F oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Do not overcook if you prefer chewy cookies.

Once baked I allowed them to cool on the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

These Oatmeal Cookies will now be a staple in our home.

Another option is to pour boiling water over one cup of raisins and let them sit for 5 minutes.  Then add the drained raisins to the batter before scooping.

Or you may prefer to add one cup of chocolate chips.
