total time


1 cup gluten free rolled oats

½ cup gluten free oat flour – if using homemade oat flour, make sure it’s very finely ground (not coarse)*

¼ teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon saltÂ

3 tablespoons melted coconut oil

2 tablespoons coconut sugar

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1 flax egg (1 tablespoon golden ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons water, whisked together, set for 15 minutes)

½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside for later.

In a medium bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients: oats, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and salt.

In a large bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients: coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple syrup, flax egg and vanilla. Whisk until thoroughly combined and resembles caramel.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Whisk until thoroughly combined and thickened. The dough will be sticky.

Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop and drop balls of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Using a fork, flatten cookies into a round disc—they will not spread during baking.

Bake for 8-12 minutes. Mine took 10 minutes. Place baking sheet on a cooling rack, allowing cookies to firm up on the pan for 10 minutes. Using a flat, heatproof spatula, carefully lift cookies off the baking sheet and transfer to a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.
