Cook's Notes

You don't need any specialty flour for these cookies. Grinding oats into a fine meal is the trick to making them gluten-free. Although oats don't contain gluten, they're often processed in facilities that also handle wheat, so they may contain trace amounts. To be safe, look for a gluten-free label. Blend up a double batch to have on hand -- these cookies are bound to be requested again and again.

    So good! They didn't fall apart like some people have said. If you follow the directions and process 1.5 cups of oats into a fine powder like it says, these should come out perfectly!

      I did do as you suggested and my cookies came out horribly dry and super crumbly

    This recipe turned out incredibly dry ... the cookies completely crumbling. Really disappointed 😔

    This is my favorite type of cookie and the best GF cookie I have made. I’ve made them many times and love them.

    Ok. just made these this morning! I highly recommend chilling the dough and I think the addition of mol[filtered] is helpful as another reviewer recommended. They come out looking a little bit like lace cookies. Pretty flat. They taste awesome though!

    Love these but since I already have oat flour on hand can someone tell me how much oat flour they get from 1.5 cups oats? Some sites say it yields a cup of oat flour. Thanks! Also did dried cranberry and white chocolate instead of raisins and milk chocolate :)

    I had the same crumbly results as another reviewer, although they taste delicious! They will be nice over dairy free ice cream.

    QUESTION: Can I skip the raisins? If I do, how much chocolate chips do I have to add?

    These cookies are the bomb! I added crasins and white chocolate chips. Instead of white sugar I used 1/2 cup of Stevia. The cookies stayed together nicely. My husband likes these better than regular oatmeal cookies. I will absolutely make again.

    These cookies are the absolute BEST oatmeal raisin cookies I've had. My daughter -in-law has Celiacs so I was looking for a Gluten Free version to regular Oatmeal Raisin cookies. I happened across this recipe as I didn't have some ingredients for my own recipe. The only thing I added was a teaspoon of mild molasses, and instead of just raisins, I made a 1 cup mixture of white & dark raisins, & craisins. These cookies are crispy on edges & bottoms, moist & chewy inside! Absolutely Delicious!
