Sugar Free Oatmeal Cookies: GF/DF (serves about 20)

These are perfect when you crave something sweet but try to avoid sugar.

  • 8 dates (soak in hot water for at least 10 minutes)
  • 1 apple, shredded
  • 1 1/4 cup (3 dl) gluten free rolled oats
  • 3 T + 1 t gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 5 T coconut oil, melted

Preheat the oven to 350 F/175 C

Put the soaked dates in a blender and blend into a paste. Put the date paste together with the grated apple in a mixing bowl. Add the dry ingredients. When everything is well blended, pour over the melted coconut oil and stir well. Scoop up the dough with a table spoon and make into small balls. Put the cookies on a parchment covered baking tray and flatten them slightly with your finger.

Bake in the middle of the oven for 10-12 minutes. (The cookies should be a little chewy).

Freezes well.
