    Gluten-Free White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

    Oatmeal raisin cookies are some of my favorite cookies ever. I’m always trying to figure out new ways to make them and I tried someone’s white chocolate oatmeal cookie and I wanted to try and make some myself. And I did.

    I’m a self-professed cookie monster and connoisseur and I must say that this white chocolate chip cookie recipe came out soooooooo good that it’s not even funny. The best part was that I tried this recipe out when the kids weren’t here and I didn’t have to share them!!! I know, I’m terrible but whatever.

    This recipe calls for coconut flour making them gluten-free for my friends with allergies to wheat. It’s important to note that in order for these to truly be gluten-free, your oatmeal cannot be contaminated with wheat so just check your labels.

    A delicious and almost nutritious year round treat!

    Cuisine American
    Prep Time 15 minutes
    Cook Time 15 minutes
    Total Time 35 minutes


    • 2 sticks unsalted butter I used organic butter
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 cup coconut flour
    • 3/4 tsp baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 2.5 cups old fashioned rolled oats
    • 1 cup white chocolate chips


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper. 

    2. In a bowl, beat the butter and sugars on medium high until they're light and fluffy.

    3. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 

    4. Once the butter and sugar is fluffy, add the egg and the vanilla continuing to beat. 

    5. With the mixer on slow, gradually add the flour mixture to the butter/sugar mixture until combined.

    6. Slowly add the oats in 1/2 cup increments. Make sure to scrape down the inside of the bowl with a spatula and mix on slow until combined. Add white chocolate chips. 

    7. Form the dough into 28 equal balls and arrange on the baking sheet. Leave lots of space in between them. Use your fingers to mash down the dough balls to be about 1/2" thick discs.

    8. Place cookie sheet on the middle rack and bake for about 15 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Remove the pan from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Allow cookies to cool on the cookie sheet.

    red velvet is like my red lipstick. it’s something i need in my life. well, maybe my thighs and stomach don’t need them but man, red velvet anything is delicious.

    since i’m not much of a cake eater but i love cookies, i decided to try my hand at making them myself. with the following batter, i made some basic red velvet cookies and then i dipped some oreos in there and made those too. oreos are definitely my favorite cookies so naturally these things went together in my head.

    red velvet cookies:

      • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
      • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
      • 1 teaspoon baking powder
      • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
      • 1/2 teaspoon salt
      • 1/4 cup butter, room temperature
      • 1 cup sugar
      • 2 eggs
      • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
      • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
      • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      • 1 tablespoon red food coloring

    i just mixed the ingredients together and baked at 375 for 10 min.
