Whatever xanthan gum is, it really makes a difference in gluten free cooking. I’m very happy to say these Gluten-free oatmeal raisin cookies did not fall into a pile of crumbs like previous attempts.

In a bowl cream butter and brown sugar together. That’s my brown sugar, I just threw a generous squirt of molasses on the sugar and call it brown sugar. I’m a believer in not going to the store for one ingredient. There’s always something you can substitute.

Then add an egg and beat it.

Adapted from Smitten Kitchen

  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour (my gluten free mix: 1/2 cup garbanzo flour, 1/2 cup Bob’s all purpose gluten free flour, 1 teaspoon xanthan gum)
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup quick oats
  • ¾ cup raisins


In a bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until they are well mixed.  Add egg and vanilla and blend well.  Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt stir to combine.  Fold in oats and raisins until they are incorporated into the dough.

Spoon onto the baking sheets.  Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are browned.

Allow the cookies to cool for 10 minutes.  Transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
