Share Favorite Oatmeal Cookie Recipes

So I took a huge risk this morning, but after finding a deal too good to pass up I had a bag of oats in my pantry so I had oatmeal for breakfast. It's only been about an hour but I haven't gotten sick. Yet. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the day.

Anyway, on to my point. I know the internet is full of recipes but I also trust you guys more than random websites so I was hoping I could get you all to share your favorite oatmeal cookie recipes. I have one already for just plain oatmeal peanut butter but I'm looking for ones with raisins, or really anything else. I'm not free of anything other than gluten so no worries there.

I make these for my hubs. I can't "do oats" yet. I hold out hope. :) He likes raisins in them, but I added chocolate chips instead once and he did not complain. If I were eating them, that's what I'd want in them!

My gluten-free Mom makes these too and shares them with GEs and she said no one knows the difference. They are very good.

They are from Bob's Red Mill recipe collection ( I believe)

1-1/2 cups gluten-free All Purpose Baking Flour

1 tsp Xanthan Gum

2 large Eggs

1 tsp Cinnamon

1/2 tsp Sea Salt

1 tsp Baking Soda

1 tsp Vanilla

1/2 cup Granulated Sugar

1 cup Brown Sugar

1 cup Butter (softened)

3 cups Gluten Free Rolled Oats

1 cup Raisins


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Beat butter and sugars together until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well.

In a separate bowl, blend flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and Xanthan Gum.

Stir flour blend into wet ingredients. Add oats and raisins and mix well.

Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes, or until golden brown.

Cool for a few minutes then transfer to wire rack.

These have passed the family test with flying colors! My husband's mother used to make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for him all the time and he does like these.


I use King Arthur Flour and have baked them this time without parchment paper. My cookie sheets are new and haven't been used for other gluten cookies so I'm not worried about any Cross contamination.

If the same recipe passes two tests than it must be good. I'm thinking dark chocolate chips and dried cranberries. It'll be delicious and it'll keep my husband away from them.

I really think the key to the soft and chewiness of the second recipe is putting them in the freezer and DO NOT overcook them. They become rock hard if you do! :rolleyes:

    • Sure, you should consider getting tested for celiac disease.  There is no test for Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance or Sensivity.  However, you have to be consuming gluten daily for at least 12 weeks as ALL celiac tests require you to be consuming gluten.   Learn more about testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
    • Welcome Isabel!   It is hard having celiac disease, but after a while it does get easier.  Just so you know, I am an adult, but I am a Girl Scout Leader, have a daughter who is 16 and one of my daughter’s friends was just diagnosed with celiac disease just three weeks ago!   Social events can be hard, but you can bring some food that is actually better than just snacks.  If I am going to a friends house, I can bring food and reheat it in the microwave.  I also have a good thermos that I can fill with Spaghetti, chili or soup.  I also bring ice cream and keep it in the freezer.  One of our troop members is really allergic  to nuts and milk, yet all her friends (true friends) accommodate her.  For example, I make some pretty good gluten free, dairy free, and nut free brownies for her.  At our troop meetings or camping, we never bring nuts.  She is never left out.  Now, we are working with our Newbie celiac friend.   My daughter and I took her a care package, so that she can start baking gluten-free chocolate chip cookies.   Short!  That is me.  Not everyone with celiac disease is short.  You may find that you end up growing more, but remember, genetics plays into it too.  My brother grew after high school!   I think that you probably see your doctor often, because they want to insure that you are following the gluten free diet.  Consider yourself lucky because some people do not have access to medical care.  They must manage this all on their own.   Take care and be safe!  Do not give out too much private information (did I say I was a Mom?”)  be patient and some other teens should show up in the other sections, but you can always ask anyone here a question.   P.S. Check out celiac summer camps.  Google it.  Imagine a ton of kids just like you!    I wanna go!    
    • I have two suggestions. First try switching to mostly natural gluten free foods. It makes the diet much easier. Second, i know you said you know the consequences, but really think deeply. in some ways, gluten is poison to your intestines. it literally eats away at it! so next time you think about eating gluten, think what you are really putting your body.
    • I’m in middle school and here is my story of celiacs. i was short all my life and had mild stomach aches. Finally, about a year and a half ago, my doctors realized it was celiacs. The blood tests came back positive for it, so i got the endoscopy. sure enough, i had celiacs. it is so hard for me for many reasons. 1. at social events it is so awful to not be able to eat anything except snacks from home. 2. I am still very short and it’s embarrassing! 3. i have to go to the doctor every 3 months for lots of blood work. Is every celiac’s life like this or just mine? Can anyone help me cope with celiacs?
    • Hey I’m around the same age! I get it and feel the same way. I was diagnosed only over a year ago and my celiacs very hard to deal with at social events. But what ever you do, don’t cheat the diet! The consequences will come back. I’m here to chat if anyone needs support
