Servings 2 1/2 dozen cookies


  • 1/3 cup solid coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 Cup GfJules™ All Purpose Gluten Free Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups certified gluten free rolled oats or use the ones from Jules, but this is what I had at home
  • Glaze:
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Cream the sugars and coconut oil until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and thoroughly blend. Stir in vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk all dry ingredients, except oats, powdered sugar and maple syrup. Add dry ingredients to the coconut oil mixture and stir until well blended. Mix in oats.
  • Scoop the dough into tablespoon sized balls and place at least 2 inches apart on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Note: If the dough is too sticky to roll, either scoop without rolling, or refrigerate until dough is cold before scooping and baking.
  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 8 – 10 minutes, or until light brown. Let cookies set for a couple minutes on pan then move to cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Make glaze: Mix together powdered sugar and maple syrup. If needed add a small amount of water, up to 1 teaspoon, a bit at a time until glaze is still a good spreading texture. Using a knife speed cookies with glaze. I purposely left gaps in my glaze, drawing the glaze only across the bumps of the cookie tops to create the crackled look I remember as a kid. Yum! Set cookies on cooling rack until glaze firms up.
  • Store in a sealed container separated by waxed paper. Or, freeze, removing as much air as possible from the container, remembering to label and seal freezer container.
