The gluten free cookie recipe is pretty basic because all you will need is pantry ingredients. However, the ratio of butter, sugar, eggs and flour is what makes the crumbl cookie stand out.

How is gluten free crumbl cookie made?

There are a few key steps to making a gluten free crumbl cookie. First, you’ll need to make sure all of your ingredients are gluten free. This includes using a gluten-free flour blend and ensuring that other ingredients (like chocolate chips, powdered sugar or sprinkles) are also gluten free.

In this gluten free Oreo crumbl cookie recipe, I used coconut sugar. I will always use coconut sugar in recipes that require granulated or brown sugar simply because it is slightly better for you and adds more flavor to baked goods.

Start by adding coconut sugar and cocoa to warm melted butter. This melts the sugar, and the cocoa mixes well with the warm butter.

After the butter cools, beat in the eggs. The eggs are what give the cookie the crumbl texture. 

Then blend in dry ingredients and oreo cookie crumbs. Gluten free Oreo cookies are now available in most stores. Or you can get them here →

Once the dough is formed, create small balls and dip the top half into Oreo crumbs. Press them gently on the baking sheet into disks and bake.

Since the cookies are larger and have eggs, they take a little longer to bake than traditional cookies. 

The chocolate butter frosting is super easy to make. However, my favorite frosting for Oreo crumbl cookies is the homemade gluten free Nutella frosting. YUM!
