The best gluten free pumpkin oatmeal cookies defy everything that a gluten-free cookie was before. Moist, cakey, and truly addictive, drizzled with a fiercely ginger maple glaze. Oh man, you need to make these!
I just want to live in a world where it is perfectly acceptable to eat pumpkin baked goods every day. A world where pumpkin oatmeal cookies are always on the menu. A world where it is a priority, NO, it is our god given right to bake pumpkin themed everything and not give a damn about it.
This world I speak of, I do live in it. I created it. Since Septemeber, there has been pumpkin everything coming out of my kitchen and I. Am. Not. Sorry.
With only a few days left in October, I feel this mad fury to post all of my pumpkin recipes, but I am going to take my time because pumpkin deserves more than a mere month, it is a season dammit!
Today I am gifting you with a cookie that is not only delicious but super easy to make. Grab your blender and ONE bowl. That's right ONE bowl and get to work. In less than 5 minutes your house will smell like fall heaven.
Pumpkin, molasses, oats, and a ginger maple glaze creates a cookie that is the very essence of all things fall, all things pumpkin, and all things right with the world. The secret to the moistest gluten free cookie you've ever had? Almond butter. Yup, just 1/4 cup of almond butter blended into the batter transforms this cookie into a moist cake like fall delight, not a sandy dry typical gluten free cookie. Nope, not in my kitchen!
Ok, I'll stop bragging about it, you just have to promise me you'll make this one. The perfect little treat for the kiddos during this pumpkin loving season.
