These Gluten-Free Oatmeal Cookies are chewy and satisfying – here is the right from scratch version of those yummy oatmeal cookies that are rich and buttery and sweetened without refined sugar.

I can honestly say that this is the best classic oatmeal cookie recipe, except this is a gluten-free version. The cookies have that perfect chewy texture of oats, and they are sweetened with coconut sugar, adding a wholesome, earthy flavour.

Gluten-free oatmeal cookie recipe made with only 7 ingredients!

This oatmeal cookie is made with certified gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats, coconut sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla, baking soda and a gluten-free flour blend.

This oatmeal cookie has sulfite-free raisins for extra sweetness and texture, but the raisins are optional.

The primary reason I used coconut sugar is that it has a lower glycemic index. This is especially important if you are serving the cookies to children.

What does a low glycemic index mean? It means it takes longer to spike the blood sugar, keeping the energy at a more even level.

By using sweetener such as the coconut sugar, you will avoid the outbursts of energy that we see in younger children when they eat something sweet. I am sure you have noticed when you give your children sugar or chocolate how much energy they have all of a sudden. By using coconut sugar, energy is better balanced.

In this cookie recipe, I used only 7 ingredients, most of which you probably already have in your pantry. This means you can make these gluten-free oatmeal cookies at any time.
