These loaded oatmeal breakfast cookies are a reduced fat version of a classic oatmeal cookie. But this version is loaded up with all of the ingredients that you might stir into a bowl of oatmeal at breakfast. With heart healthy walnuts, dried cranberries, raisins and slivers of dried apricots there’s something for everyone. For the kids, I’ve also included a handful of semisweet chocolate chips which make these cookies hard for anyone to resist. A few of these yummy cookies are nutritious enough to be a quick breakfast or a healthy snack the whole family will enjoy.

    ok right :) I never knew about rye though I thought it was fine, but there is always going to be some traces around that we cant prevent

  2. EZGlutenFree says:

    You’re absolutely correct. Dr Peter Osborne of the channel (glutenology) actually advocates eliminating all oats, corn, rice and other grains that are typically thought of as OK for people with gluten problems. Oats are the worst offender as they are often cross contaminated by being processed in areas that also process wheat etc so it is important that they are certified gluten free. Most of my recipe focus on the standard advice of eliminating wheat, rye barley and some oats.

    I dont think everyone who is a coeliac can actually have oats, because it contains oat gluten? That is what my dietician has told me, but great recipe!

  5. EZGlutenFree says:

    Thanks for stopping by. These turned out very well. You’d never guess that they are gluten free. I hope you try them out.

    these look yummy! I LOVE oats!

  7. orlendatube says:

    well soy is toxic, so i wouldnt be too unhappy about having to stay away from it!

    sorry to hear about the wheat and dairy though! are you ok with rice or almond milk? I know that doesnt help with finding dairy products though….i;d die without ice cream! Do you have any good recipes that you make that are free of that stuff? I;d love to know about them!

    The kids will love them.

    I just checked out your blog. They look awesome. Well done.

    Thank you. Last night I posted a Gluten Free, Vegan, Sugar Free Blueberry Muffin Recipe. I hope you like it.

    Oh very cool, my daughter is always asking about Bento boxes. Love the cat in the hat pancake box. Ground Flaxseed is always a good addition to boost nutrition. The cucumber chain is so cute. Nice job.

    I currently don’t upload videos of my recipes, but I have a blog where I occasionally share gluten free recipes. If you are interested my blog is called Kat’s Bento Love. (Youtube is not letting me post a link.)
    It is a food blog, but it is mostly about Bento lunch boxes. I also share recipes that I come up with ranging from desserts, dinners, breakfasts, and snacks.

  14. EZGlutenFree says:

    These are definitely cookies and not breakfast. They’re cookies that taste like breakfast with less fat and sugar than my normal recipe. I like to use the baking mixes for the youtube recipes I write so that they are easily accessible to a greater number of people. I’ve just subbed you in hopes that you’ll upload videos with your recipes. For Youtube I’m doing my older recipes revamped to get them gluten free and a little healthier. I look forward to learning more.

    For a breakfast cookie, these sure are loaded with sugar and fat. I would make a flourless vegan oatmeal cookie instead of these. And they would be a lot healthier and lower calorie. I am gluten intolerant, but I prefer not to use many gf baking mixes because they are so low in nutrition and fiber.

  16. EZGlutenFree says:

    Thanks for stopping by. It’s always best to eat organic when you can afford it. Being allergic to wheat soy and dairy must be difficult at times when you’re trying to plan meals. But then final dishes are probably pretty healthy which is a bright point in the situation.
