Oh, they sound heavenly--but I don't like margarine. Would butter work? Or shortening? Or should I use coconut oil?

Im so excited to try them, we are all sick right now so it will have to wait till we get better. buffettbride- I hope your daughter likes them.

mamaw- Im paranoid about using gluten-free oats, Im so sensitive it wouldnt shock me if it bothered me too. I bet it would taste good with them though.

fiddlefaddle- I would imagine butter would be fine to use.

Gosh! Little Debbie Oatmeal Cremes were my staple in high school!!! :P I can't wait to make these! I have a question about the flour mix - how much xanthum gum do I add? Most of my mixes don't come with it, so I add it to the recipe.

My wife made these for me and our kids tonight. They are awesome. I ate until I got a stomach ache. We used gluten-free oats and WOW. Anyone that says gluten-free doesn't taste good needs to try these.

Thank you for sharing the recipe with us.

Standard addition of xanthan gum is one teaspoon for every 1- 1 1/2 cups of flour. (I think, I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.)

You are right, there was a recent post about about how much xanthum gum/cup of flour. It's 1 tsp/cup of gluten-free flour for cookies.

Sorry Laura, I forgot to post the info on xantham gum, Im having major brain fog today :blink:

Belinda, My friend only uses quinoa flakes and her kids love them hopefully they will taste just as good that way.

I made these cookies the other day and they were a hit!! Even my non gluten-free friends loved them! I put in gluten-free oatmeal instead of the quinoa and theywere just like Little Debbies! I wasn't sure how it would taste with the quinoa, but I had a recent baking disaster so I was a little aprehensive about using it.

I will definitely make these again!

    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      I  think you need to watch where you get your medical info!    Of course you can't introduce gluten back in. And  of course you have to be strictly gluten-free and not intentionally eat gluten.   "The gluten-free diet is a lifetime requirement. Eating any gluten, no matter how small an amount, can damage your intestine. This is true for anyone with the disease, including people who do not have noticeable symptoms. It can take weeks for antibody levels (indicating intestinal damage) to normalize after a person with celiac disease has consumed gluten. Depending on a person’s age at diagnosis, some problems, such as delayed growth and tooth discoloration, may not improve. The gluten-free diet requires a completely new approach to eating. You have to be extremely careful about what you buy for lunch at school or work, eat at cocktail parties, or grab from the refrigerator for a midnight snack. Eating out and traveling can be challenging as you learn to scrutinize menus for foods with gluten, question the waiter or chef about possible hidden sources of gluten, and search for safe options at airports or on the road. However, with practice, identifying potential sources of gluten becomes second nature and you’ll learn to recognize which foods are safe and which are off limits." http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/living-with-celiac/guide/treatment    
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      FlowerQueen is correct.  Once diagnosed with celiac disease, you should never consume gluten again without the risk of becoming very ill (osteoporosis, liver damage, lymphoma, etc.).   I think everyone has trouble in the beginning sticking to a gluten free diet.  That's because gluten is in so many processed foods.  It takes time to learn to read labels, make a safe kitchen, learn to eat out, get your family to support you.  I would advise reading out Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum.  It contains valuable tips for becoming gluten free.  Also, check out the University of Chicago's celiac website to learn about celiac disease.  Knowledge is power!   Everyone has different degrees of damage, but I would say that learning the diet and healing can take months to a year or longer.  The good news is that this is an autoimmune disorder that is treatable -- avoid gluten at all costs!   Take care and welcome to the forum!   
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      Not sure what you mean by perfecting your diet? Do you mean accidentally eating gluten?   As to re-introducing gluten again, if you have celiac disease, please DO NOT ever re-introduce gluten again. It's an auto-immune disease, not a food intolerance. It will damage your gut again if you do.  Hope this helps.
    • 3 months gluten-free still feeling cramps
      First of all, your doctor does not seem to be celiac savvy.  It is so easy for a GI doctor to miss patches of intestinal damage on an endoscopy because the small intestinal wall, if spread out is the size of a tennis court!   How many samples were taken and submitted to a pathologist?  A visual look from the GI often results in nothing!  For example, my endoscopy visual was recorded as normal.  But my biopsies revealed moderate to severe intestinal villi damage (Marsh Stage IIIB).  GI's are supposed to take four to six tissue samples.  I would suggest getting copies of all your lab/procedure reports.  Don't trust me.  Here's the research: http://gi.org/guideline/diagnosis-and-management-of-celiac-disease/ http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/living-with-celiac/guide/diagnosis Next, three months of eating gluten free is not very long.  The reality is that there is a steep learning curve to going gluten free.  You can get "glutened" by kissing someone who just consumed gluten.  You can get it from a shared toaster, coated frying pan, wooden spoon, etc.  Gluten can be hidden in prescription medications, etc.  Do you EVER eat out?   I can tell you that it took me a year to feel pretty good and another to feel really normal!  My learning curve was not so steep since my hubby had been gluten-free for 12 years prior to my diagnosis, so I knew the drill.   You could have something else besides celiac disease.  Like SIBO, Crohn's, etc.  You might consider going back to your GI for another celiac antibodies test to see if you are diet compliant  before looking into other illnesses.   You could have developed intolerances (lactose is a huge one).  These can be identified by keeping a food diary.  They develop because your gut has been damaged (or is continuing to be damaged by gluten).  You might consider digestive enzymes (use certified gluten-free ones) and stick to whole well-cooked foods (including fruit) for a month or so.  I can tell you that I could not eat eggs for years.  Now I eat them daily.  Same for hard-to-digest things like nuts and crunchy fresh veggies!   Check out our Newbie 101 section pinned under the "Coping" section of this forum.  Review it to be sure you really are gluten free.  Then give yourself some time to heal.   I hope you feel better soon!
