You might be feeling like the season of cookie making is over but guess what – it’s not! Cookies are great for Valentines, Easter and Mother’s Day brunch too. Cookies are good all year round and this gluten free version of an all time favorite is sure to be a hit.

Ingredients

These are the ingredients that we love the most. The most common substitution is to replace the nutmeg with cinnamon. We LOVE nutmeg so we stick to this pretty close!

  • 5 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 3/4 C all-purpose gluten free flour
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten free oats
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips

Are Oats Gluten Free

This is such a great question. Oatmeal used in Oatmeal Cookies – I get asked often if oats are gluten free! Did you know that oats are naturally gluten-free! However, if they are processed in a facility that processes gluten containing grains, they can get contaminated.

Directions

Start by beating the butter with the sugars and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Next, add the egg and beat.

In another bowl, mix the flour, oats, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg.

Mix the ingredients from the two bowls together and add the butterscotch morsels.

On a parchment paper covered cookie sheet, drop by rounded tablespoonfuls about two inches apart. Bake for 12-14 minutes until edges are slightly browned.
