Iced Gingerbread Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup (125g) runny nut/seed butter (if it’s on the thicker side, add 1-2 tbsp coconut oil)
  • 3/4 cup (105g) coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup (80g) molasses
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp flax meal + 3 tbsp warm water)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup (105g) gluten-free flour
  • 1 cup (80g) rolled oats
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Glaze

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Using a hand mixer, beat together nut/seed butter, coconut sugar, molasses, flax egg, and vanilla.
  3. Add flour, oats, spices, baking soda, and salt. Use a spatula to mix to a thick dough.
  4. Scoop (about 2 tbsp per cookie) the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving some room for spreading (about 8 per baking sheet). Press the tops down to flatten slightly.
  5. Bake 11-12 minutes until golden around the edges. Cool 10 minutes on the pan before moving to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  6. Repeat with remaining dough, you will get about 16 cookies.
  7. For the glaze, whisk together powdered sugar and coconut milk until very smooth and drizzle-able. Add more coconut milk only if it’s too thick.
  8. Glaze cooled cookies. Refrigerate just until glaze is set.
