Easy and kid-friendly, these cinnamon apple oatmeal cookies are a simple and nutritious gluten-free and dairy-free treat that’s 100% mom-approved.
Oats are a funny thing with celiac. Some people (like my dad – lucky) can handle them just fine and eat as much as they want (albeit certified gluten-free ones, of course), while some people (like myself), can pretty much have… none. Not even super organic, gluten-free ones.
<insert sad face here>
Every now and again though, I cheat and eat a little. I just make sure that my cheating is fully worth the results.
Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Cookies.
These cookies are one of my cheats. They are a favorite cookie with my family and friends – yep, even non-gluten-free-ers love them! And to make add to their wonderful-ness, they are actually pretty healthy. So I don’t mind making a batch for my kiddos (and hubby) to enjoy.
Here are a few more of my favorite, easy gluten-free cookies…

Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Cookies
Free from gluten, dairy, and refined sugar.
- 1/4 cup softened coconut oil (or butter, if you can do dairy)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup applesauce
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup peanut butter (or almond butter)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla (I like to make my own)
- 2 1/2 cups gluten-free oats
- 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup chopped apples (I like to use golden delicious)
- 1/2 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease it.
If your coconut oil is hard, warm it up. Make sure the applesauce, eggs, and peanut butter are at room temp so they don’t make the coconut oil harden again. Mix all these together in a large bowl, along with the vanilla.
Pour the oats, coconut and cinnamon on top, then sprinkle with salt and baking soda. Stir to combine.
Mix in the apples and raisins.
Scoop heaping tablespoonfuls of dough onto prepared cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes.
Aha! I should have guessed this was your amazing cookie recipe. I spotted it on Pennywise Platter this week. How sad that you can’t enjoy oats! I wonder why it is that come people can handle them fine while others suffer?
Aw, thanks, Julia. 😉 It is rather sad; I guess it just shows that not everyone suffers from celiac in exactly the same way. We all need to listen to our bodies! Thankfully there’s plenty of other good options out there!
These cookies look delicious! We are big oats and apple fans here so I will definitely have to give these a try!
I hope you enjoy them, Sydney!
Oh this sounds delicious! I can’t wait to try them!
