Oatmeal-Cherry Cookies! Gluten Free Conversion

Gluten Free LogoThis oatmeal cookie recipe is SO good. Well at least my conversion recipe is. LOL! I’m kidding I’m sure the original is good as well. You make which ever one you want and I’m sure you’ll be a happy camper.

Just remember that my conversions to the original recipe are in parenthesis and in italics.



1 c. butter, softened (I used 1/2 c. coconut oil, melted and 1/2 cup softened butter)

1 c. brown sugar, packed (I used 1 c. Coconut Sugar )

1/2 c. sugar ( I omitted and it tasted just fine)

2 eggs, beaten

1 t. vanilla extract

1-1/2 c. all-purpose flour (I used a cup and a half of oat flour. Just grind your oats up either in a food processor or a coffee grinder. Make sure to use GF oats if you have serious reactions to gluten.)

1 t. baking soda

1 t. cinnamon

Optional: 1/2t. salt

3 c. long-cooking oats, uncooked

1 c. sweetened dried cherries (I used Eden Organic Dried Cranberries .)


In a large bowl, blend together butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine flour (oat flour), baking soda, cinnamon and salt, if using. Mix well and add to butter mixture. Stir in oats and cherries. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, until golden. Cool for one minute on baking sheets; remove to a wire rack and cool completely. Makes 4 dozen (I didn’t quite get that many.)

You can find this yummy recipe and so many more in the Gooseberry Patch Cookbook, The Harvest Table.

 And as always, feel free to use the handy “printer friendly button” below the post or you can to save for later.

Also, if you have some of their books already and have a recipe you would like to see converted please don’t hesitate to ask. Here is a link with the books that I have on hand.

AND just so you know, Gooseberry Patch has given me permission to do this conversion thing for you, because they rock. *smile*
