Gluten-Free Cherry Chip Almond Oatmeal Cookies

Gluten Free Cherry Chip Almond Oatmeal Cookies

For the last few months I have been diligently researching gluten-free baking. I didn’t need to do it. Nobody in my house has a reason to go gluten-free but I myself have a lot of health issues and I figured it couldn’t hurt to swap out some gluten for some gluten-free. It also doesn’t hurt that I love adding almond meal to baked goods already to give them a protein bump. I have read up so much on what flours are good for what, how people like the tastes and textures and which ones come closest to something like all-purpose flour. Then a few weeks back I found out that one of my great-nieces (No I’m not THAT old but my husband is older than me so he is that old and I’m the aunt about the same age as my nieces and nephews.) has been put on a gluten-free diet for health reasons. I figured this weekend at the family 4th of July festivities was the perfect time to break out with my first gluten-free recipe for the blog, Gluten-Free Cherry Chip Almond Oatmeal Cookies. I was really pleased with the texture and taste of these and the cookies were well liked by everyone.

During my research on gluten-free baking I learned that you could get gluten-free oatmeal now and process it in the food processor to use as a flour. I decided to use that and a bit of almond meal for this recipe because oats in cookies are very common so it was not to much of a drastic textural change. So, if you are a fan of oatmeal cookies then this will definitely be a recipe you will like but a little kicked up with the white chocolate chips and the sweet and tart dried cherries.
