These Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies are perfectly chewy and so easy to make. You’ll love them!

This oatmeal cookie recipe is made with 10 ingredients and comes together in no time. I used my stand mixer to make these cookies, but a hand mixer will work just as well.

I opted to keep these oatmeal cookies plain, by leaving out the chocolate chips. But if you’re wanting gluten free oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, by all means, throw in those chocolate chips!

Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies – How To Make

First, fix the paddle attachment to the stand mixer. Place the butter, sugar, vanilla, and egg into the mixing bowl.

Cream the ingredients together until light and fluffy. About 2 minutes.

Slowly add in the gluten free flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until a dough forms.

Add in the oats and chocolate chips if using, and mix on low speed. Or, if using a hand mixer, mix them in by hand.

Scoop the cookie dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake in a 350℉ oven for 10 minutes.

Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to come to room temperature. They’ll continue to cook as they cool. Who says gluten free desserts can’t be delicious!

Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies – Tips

The cookies will continue to cook on the pan as they’re cooling to become the perfect chewy texture.

When subbing the brown sugar for more white, the cookies will be lighter in color but just as delicious.

The cookies will look underdone when you take them out of the oven – this is perfect!

Not all gluten free flour is created equal. I recommend using the same brand I used for this recipe!

To make these oatmeal raisin cookies, just swap the chocolate chips for raisins!

I haven’t tried these cookies using substitutions like oat flour, almond flour, or coconut oil instead of butter, so I recommend sticking to the recipe for this one.

    My family loves this recipe. I make it dairy free with Mykanos plant based butter and it still comes out great.
