Soaked Gluten Free Breakfast Cookies

I keep adapting some of our favorite recipes to make them gluten free.  The other day I took some breakfast cookies out of the freezer…and couldn’t let my daughter have one.  So of course I had to tackle that challenge this week 🙂

Soaked, gluten free and delicious!  Fresh baked this morning for a nice treat for the family.  Do you ever have cookies for breakfast?  If not you should give these a try.

Soaked Gluten Free Breakfast Cookies
makes 10 – 12 cookies

1 cup oats
1 cup any combination of gluten free flour (I used white rice, brown rice and teff flours)
1/2 cup butter or coconut oil
1/3 cup kefir, buttermilk, sour milk or water + lemon juice
1/3 cup honey
1 egg
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup add-ins (chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruit, coconut)

Melt the butter or coconut oil.  Mix the oats, flour, butter and kefir.  Let soak 7 – 24 hours.

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Add the remaining ingredients to the soaked mixture.  Mix well.  Drop large mounds onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake 20 minutes, until golden.

Serve warm or allow to cool and store in an airtight container.  They freeze very well.

    Hi Mary,

    These look yummy and would like to make for my 5yr old son! If I choose to use only lemon juice instead of kefir or buttermilk how much lemon juice and water should I add to make the 1/3 cup liquid to soak oats and flour?

    I made your allergen free honey oat bars and froze them. My son liked them😊👍

    Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes.

    • I’m glad the honey oat bars worked out for you, Swarna! I usually do about 2 tsp. lemon juice and then the rest water to equal 1/3 cup. It doesn’t have to be exact. Just a splash 🙂 I hope your son likes them!

    Hi Mary,

    Thanks for getting back to me. I have one more question….
    Is there a particular reason why we should add lemon juice to the soaking liquid? Can lime juice or anything else can be substituted when I have no lemons on hand?
