Why this recipe works
I love a classic oatmeal cookie, but oftentimes they have regular flour and other ingredients I cannot have. These simple almond butter oatmeal cookies contain just 5 simple ingredients. Gluten free oats, almond butter (or nut butter of choice), eggs, coconut sugar, chocolate chips, and cinnamon. You can make them in 20 minutes from start to finish! Perfect for eating for dessert OR breakfast. You can also sub in whatever you have – peanut butter or nut butter of choice, and toppings of choice!
What You Need To Make These Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Old fashioned rolled oats– It’s important to look for gluten free oats if you have a gluten intolerance or Celiac Disease. I love Bob’s Red Mill brand and Thrive Market brand! Thrive’s is Certified GF, and Bob’s is batch tested and process it in a separate facility.
- Almond butter or nut butter of choice – peanut butter also works well. Please note if you use sun butter your cookies might turn green (which could be fun for St. Paddy’s!). Make sure the nut butter is smooth. My favorite is Costco almond butter. It only contains almonds and salt! My favorite peanut butter is Justin’s.
- Coconut sugar
- Baking soda
- Chocolate Chips – Enjoy life dark chocolate chips are my personal favorite.
- sea salt

How To Make Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Combine the eggs, coconut sugar, and nut butter in a bowl and mix well using a fork. In a separate bowl, mix the oats, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir using a spatula. Fold in the chocolate chips (if using).
Drop 1/4 cup spoonfuls onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Press down using your fingers to form round cookies about 1 inch high and 3 inches wide. Bake them for 11-13 minutes. Let them cool for 15 minutes. Enjoy!

Other Fun Mix-Ins:
Don’t feel like you are limited to just chocolate chips! You could also turn these into delicious gluten free breakfast muffin tops by adding:
- Nuts – pistachios, pecans, or walnuts would be delicious
- Dried cranberries
- Coconut flakes
- Date pieces
Regular oats are naturally gluten free, but they may come in contact with gluten-containing grains such as wheat, rye and barley at the farm, in storage or during transportation. For this reason, it’s important to look for gluten free oats if you have Celiac or a gluten intolerance!
