Gluten Free Gingerbread Oatmeal Cookies

Gluten Free Gingerbread Oatmeal Cookies are a soft-baked and chewy, ginger spiced cookie perfect for your holiday cookie plate!

Prep: 40 minCook: 10 minTotal: 50 min
Servings: 18 cookies 1x


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


  1. Cream together the room temperature butter, coconut sugar, egg, and vanilla. You can use an electric mixer, or vigorously whip it with a handheld whisk.

  2. Once combined, add the almond flour, oats, spices, salt, and baking soda.
  3. Mix again until combined.
  4. IMPORTANT STEP!! Chill the dough. This will make sure the cookies don’t spread out too much when you go to bake them. Chill the dough for just 30 minutes – you can chill it for longer, but 30 minutes should do the trick.

  5. Preheat oven to 350F.
  6. Use a cookie scooper to scoop 8 – 12 cookies out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  7. Use your fingers to flatten the tops of the cookie dough balls and tuck in any edges. Bake for 10 minutes.

  8. ANOTHER IMPORTANT STEP! Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 10 – 15 minutes before you transfer them to a cooling rack or plate. Right out of the oven they are a little too soft to handle and will crumble. If you allow them to sit for 10 minutes on the baking sheet, the edges crisp up and are amazing. 

  9. Sprinkle the tops with flakey salt and/or ground cinnamon and enjoy!
