These soft and chewy spiced apple oatmeal cookies are gluten-free, dairy-free and 100% whole grain.

I’m super excited about today’s post! A few weeks ago, I was asked if I’d like to contribute some gluten-free recipes to My Baking Addiction. I’d been a huge fan of Jamie’s since long before I started blogging so you can imagine how shocked and excited I was. I had to reread the email a few times before I actually believed it. My reaction was something along the lines of – “Huh? ME? No way. Was this supposed to go to one of the other Erins…?”

For my first post, I wanted to make something without any unusual ingredients. These gluten-free apple spice cookies are the very first gluten-free recipe on My Baking Addiction and I wanted to make it as friendly as possible for non-gluten-free households. I didn’t use my usual almond and coconut flours (I will be posting recipes with those later on!) but oats and oat flour. That means anyone with a bag of oats can make these apple cookies! If you don’t have oat flour and you don’t know how to make it yourself, go check out my post on MBA.

I initially tried these cookies with butter and while they came out decently, I preferred them with coconut oil. Plus using coconut oil makes them dairy-free, which I know makes a lot of you happy. They’re also 100% whole grain so you can get your fiber while downing these cookies. Aren’t apples also high in fiber? Why, yes they are! I just calculated that if you eat half a batch (that would be 18 cookies) you have your entire fiber intake for the day! You’re welcome. :D

If spiced apple oatmeal cookies aren’t your cup of tea, you can switch or leave out the spices and toss in whatever add-ins you want. The cookies are softer than gluten-containing cookies and therefore more fragile. Chocolate chips or chopped nuts or fruit would be okay but make sure the pieces aren’t too big or else your cookies will come out in strange shapes and may fall apart a little. So keep it chocolate chip sized or smaller and you should be good. :)
