Gluten Free Breakfast Cookies

Hello!  My kid got the job.  Only 2 days a week though so we are going to look into something else for 3 days!  I am so proud of her!  Thanks for the positive thoughts!

I cannot believe I finally got to make these breakfast cookies today.  I have been wanting to make them since I saw this post at Iowa Girl Eats!

Check out her site for this recipe AND many others.  I have been following her for many years.  You will love her easy to follow recipes, easy to print out and pretty images as well.

I started my Sunday like a normally do.  Hanging out in my bed with my my iPad, kitties and a good book.  I actually finished another book this morning.

Can I just add here that reading is a blessing and I cannot tell you how it is helping to save my sanity during this journey!


Once my kid woke up and I could start banging away in the kitchen, I got started!

I pulled out my presto shooter to make the shredded carrots.  I don’t use this often, not since last Christmas, hence the bow.  However, I would not be without one of these now.


I had everything I needed on hand today because I bought the ingredients a long time ago!


Since I had all these expensive ingredients, come hell or high water, I was determined to get these made!


They turned out great!  Look!


Look how nice and brown, NOT BLACK the bottoms are!  Remember this?


If you have been reading for awhile you know that my stove is horrible.  It burns everything.

But not these~!


Perfection!  (You don’t come here for the pretty pictures right?)  😉


This is why they did not burn!


I finally wised up!  This and I put the oven rack up high and turn oven down low.  I think I figured it out finally.

I froze some of these.  My kid loves them.  She did sprinkle on a little sugar to sweeten a bit.

The best thing about cooking and baking at home is you know what is in the the food.  Other than that, I just think buying already made is so much easier.

I have lots of left over Oats and flour so now I have to make something else.  Gluten Free Oatmeal cookies maybe?  Now that I won’t burn them!

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day!

  1. Yay on the first job – always an exciting time!!! Once they see what a good worker she is, maybe they’ll increase her hours. It’s funny, my kids are as lazy as could be at home but let me tell you, they have a fantastic work ethic so we must have done something right 🙂

    Not sure about the cookies….they look very healthy which is usually NOT the way I go 😦 They do look perfectly cooked though – LOVE that parchment paper 🙂 Are they moist?

    • Yes! They are super moist! If i make them again I would def sweeten them up. Maybe instead of nuts I would use dates.

      Healthy can be good! ;/( sometimes!

  2. Yum, I think the cookies look good. I like to bake with pumpkin instead of oil and eggs. Yea for your daughter getting the paying gig. I bet she’ll do a great job and it will lead to bigger things. I’m on a good roll with my books. I’ll finish a really good one tonight, Walden On Wheels. Then I’m starting one by Stephanie Marston. Were you the one who mentioned her?

  3. Congratulations to your daughter! I had a hunch she’d get the job, and hopefully able to find something else to fill her days.

    Good job on the cookies, although I admit I am not a carrot fan AT ALL (do not even like carrot cake). I’ve made some applesauce oatmeal muffins that used gluten-free flour, but they did have some sugar and I added blueberries, so perhaps not quite as healthy as your breakfast cookies.

    • Those muffins sound good! I should look for a recipe then do what Kim does, use pumpkin instead of oil and eggs! Now that I prob won’t burn everything! 😉
