You are going to love this new cookie recipe. This is the one cookie that you will want to take a big bite out of and horde the batch for yourself!

These gluten free oatmeal raisin cookies with Irish cream are a twist on an old fashioned oatmeal raisin cookie.

I can’t believe I have never posted an oatmeal cookie recipe on my blog. I make these cookies pretty often. Mr. Fearless Dining and my kids love them. They even love the new twist I gave these cookies for St. Patrick’s Day. If you haven’t tried Irish cream, you will be in for a treat with this easy Irish cream icing recipe!

Gluten Free Oats

These gluten free oatmeal cookies are full of healthy oats. I want to take a moment to remind you how important it is to make sure your oats are certified gluten free. Oats themselves are gluten free, but they are frequently come into contact with gluten. Trader Joe’s, Bob’s Red Mill, and several other companies have gluten free oats available.

Irish Cream

Who doesn’t love Irish cream? I used Bailey’s Irish Cream for this icing, but you can always make your own Irish cream. Check out this homemade Irish cream recipe. I bet this sweet icing would also taste great on these Gluten Free Blonde Brownies or this giant Gluten Free Oatmeal Skillet Cookie!

The icing will harden on the cookie, just like one of those old fashioned iced oatmeal cookies you probably ate before going gluten free!

How to make gluten free oatmeal raisin cookies:

Gluten free oatmeal raisin cookie dough

Combine the oatmeal cookie ingredients as listed in the recipe below. Mix the cookie dough well.

Use a cookie scoop to drop dough balls onto a baking sheet. Press down slightly with your hand to flatten slightly. Don’t eat that gluten free oatmeal cookie dough since there are raw eggs in there! (I know you will be tempted!!)

    Would it be possible to obtain calorie count and carb count for your
    recipes? Besides having celiac I am a diabetic 2 candidate. I am certain
    that I am not alone. This oatmeal cookie sounds delish but I need more

    • Hi Barb, the short answer is yes. I am trying to add this to all of my recipes. The long answer is it takes a LONG time to do this for each of my 400+ recipes. I am trying to update 1-2 old posts per day, but it is difficult to carve out time many days. I should have this new recipe finished with this information by tonight…though you may have to leave the icing off because of the sugar.

  2. I love these cookies! Would you consider mailing me a batch! ;-P Cannot wait to try them!
