Want to know the number 1 question I get asked? IS IT GLUTEN FREE? Everything I make people are always asking me if it is gluten free, nut free, soy free so here we go. A cookie that does not contain gluten, soy, peanuts, dairy, eggs or tree nuts. The cookie is also refined sugar free.

The flour in this cookie is oat flour. It is so simple to make you just need rolled oats and either a food processor or blender. I do it in my Vitamix but whatever blender you have should be able to handle this process! Always make sure to check that your oats are gluten free.
2 1/2 cups of oat flour
1/4 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup coconut oil, softened
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tiny squeeze of lemon
Preheat the oven to 400F. Sift 1 1/2 cups of oat flour into a bowl. I find sifting really helps the oat flour since it isn’t the most smooth flour. Then add in the coconut oil, apple sauce, baking powder, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Mix your dough together. At this point the consistency should be rather sticky resembling almost like a thick cake batter. Then you can add in the other 1 cup of oat flour. Do this in 1/2 cups at a time. Oats can soak up liquid very slowly. So it may take a few moments of the oats sitting there to really soak up the coconut oil, apple sauce and maple syrup. Once your dough is crumbly use your hands to help bring it together. The dough should be able to form into a nice ball. I like to cut the dough in half to roll it out. Place on half onto a piece of parchment paper and top with another piece of parchment paper. Roll it to a 1/2 inch thick and then cut out whatever shape you would like. You want to bake it for about 7-10 minutes. It just depends on your oven don’t over bake them you want them to be a little golden brown on the bottom. Allow to cool for half hour before icing.
For the icing just take your powered sugar, avocado and a tiny squeeze of lemon and mix together with a hand mixer. You can spread this with a knife or put it into a piping bag. Either way just have fun with it. I topped them with some sprinkles but you can top them with coconut chips, pomegranate seed or cacao nibs!
Yields 20-25 cookies
