Why This Recipe Is Great:
- This gluten free skillet cookie is so easy to make.

If you are an ala mode person like me, you are going to want a gooey sweet sauce to drizzle over your gluten free oatmeal pizookie cookie. Here are some fun ideas for sauces:
There are a few brands of certified gluten free oats, and they are all good. I mostly buy this because you get four bags for a lower price.
- Gluten Free Oats - Use rolled oats, not quick oats. Be sure your oats are certified gluten free!
- Gluten Free Flour Blend - Most brands of gluten free flour will work in this recipe but don't use any gluten free flour blend with bean flour. You can use my DIY Gluten Free Flour Blend if you need a gum-free blend.
- Brown Sugar - light or dark brown sugar both work well.
- Butter - Use unsalted butter. Use vegan butter if you are dairy-free.
- Eggs - Use size large.
- Vanilla Extract - I recommend using pure vanilla extract.
Certified Gluten Free Oats Are Critical:
I can't stress enough how important it is to use certified gluten free oats. Regular oats are very easily cross-contaminated with gluten every step of the way, from growing in the fields to harvesting equipment to silo storage.
Certified gluten free oats are grown with a purity protocol to ensure they do not get exposed to gluten.
- Dolce Leche sauce (I buy it at Trader Joe's)
- Hot Fudge
- Bourbon Butterscotch Sauce (see the picture below!)
- Old-Fashioned Vanilla Cream Sauce
Tips For Success:
- Let the batter sit in the skillet for 15 minutes before baking. This will help soften the rolled oats.
- Be careful not to overbake this cookie.
- Use gluten free frosting to pipe decorations for a birthday.

Step 2: In a separate bowl, add all of the wet ingredients and whisk to blend.
