Cookie Love

Oatmeal cookies are a favorite around here. Well, really all cookies, but I love oatmeal ones because they kinda feel like I’m sneaking in a little something healthy. They do have oatmeal of course!

Anytime I can sneak in cookies for breakfast (like with these Oatmeal Cookie Overnight Oats) it’s a win. This individual apple cinnamon gluten free mug cake is perfection. It only takes a couple minutes to whip up, a few in the microwave, and bam- the perfect little gluten free coffee cake.

I especially like treats like this on those rare mornings I have a few minutes to myself. The little bits of cookie streusel and bites of apple are absolute perfection.

Oatmeal Cookies

If you are a celiac or have a gluten sensitivity it is important to know that just any oatmeal cookie is not gluten free. Make sure that they are certified gluten free. Even though oats are naturally gluten free, they often have high levels of cross-contamination.

My favorite gluten free oatmeal cookies are Goodie Girl’s Oatmeal Raisin. They are just the right amount of sweet, and have a nice crunch. I have to hide them from my daughter! She loves them. On top of being delicious on their own, they are great in dishes like this Apple Cinnamon Gluten Free Mug Cake or my Inside Out Apple Crisp.

Apple Cinnamon Gluten Free Mug Cake

I tested this recipe out multiple times trying to get the ratios just right. It’s moist, but still has that slight denseness that you want from a gluten free coffee cake.

If you aren’t a huge fan of cinnamon, you can omit it and it is still delicious. I tried it!

For gluten free flour, I used GF Jules, which does contain xanthan gum. It’s my favorite blend. If your flour blend does not already contain it, you may want to try adding it, but it is such a small cake, it shouldn’t be necessary. As soon as I get my hands on some other gluten free flour I will give it a try!

What really makes this gluten free mug cake is the streusel. Any good gluten free coffee cake is going to have streusel and Goodie Girl’s Oatmeal Cookies are perfect for this. You get a bit of cookie in every bite!

You are going to love this apple cinnamon gluten free mug cake. It’s the perfect size for not sharing…if you need to share, you may want to make two!

Happy Gluten Free Eating!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Goodness

We are huge chocolate chip cookie lovers at this house. Chocolate chip cookies are my husband’s favorite. As I was working on this post I kept having to hide the cookies because my husband kept eating them. He would give me a sad puppy dog look every time I told him, “No, I’m not done with them yet!”.

These chocolate chip cookies are some of the best on the market. If you like your cookies a bit on the crunchy side with just the right amount sweetness, they are perfect. These Quinoa Chocolate Chip Cookies even have Quinoa in them to give a little boost of healthy. Plus, Quinoa means that it would only be right to eat at least two….or 3…or the whole bag. Whatever you prefer!

Goodie Girl Cookies

There are some new cookies hitting the shelves of Publix. With flavors that will remind you of Girl Scouts (except these are gluten free!), one bite and you will understand why their slogan is

Goodness Never Tasted so Naughty.

They are ridiculously good. When I got my first boxes in, my family had to taste them. Next thing you know I’m hiding them to keep them from eating them before I take my pictures. No one can tell they are gluten free. There is nothing “gluten free” tasting about them and let me tell you, you better be careful because you will eat a whole bag.

One of the things people miss most when becoming gluten free is the baked goods. You probably thought good cookies were a thing of the past. Sure you can make them, but that takes time. You can’t just open up a bag and enjoy. Thankfully, Publix is now carrying three of the Goodie Girl Cookie flavors for you to enjoy any time you want, plus I have a great giveaway for you to win some for yourself!

Goodie Girl Cookies in South FloridaThe Cookies

Thin Mints

You all know that time of year. Little girls start showing up at tables in front of every store with piles of cookies. You walk by with your head hanging low, trying to avoid eye contact so you won’t have to tell them you aren’t buying any. All those gluten filled Thin Mints you used to love, now a thing of the past.

Well, not anymore. Goodie Girl Cookies has your back. Their Thin Mint Cookies taste just as good, if not, dare I say, better than the Girl Scout Thin Mints. If you love chocolate and mint, these cookies are for you.


Goodie Girl Cookies in South FloridaQuinoa Chocolate Chip

Now, when I first read “quinoa” I thought, oh great, another cookie ruined by someone’s attempt to make cookies healthy. Cookies just aren’t healthy, it’s part of the definition. I was wrong. They are awesome! They don’t even taste like quinoa, they taste like chocolate chip cookies. These were a quick favorite at our house. Chocolate chip cookies are just that one cookie that everyone loves. The Quinoa Chocolate Chip also come in go packs, which are perfect for lunches or when you’re out and about.



Goodie Girl Cookies in South FloridaOatmeal Raisin

Sooooo good. Crisp, with a bit of a crunch. Everything that you would expect in an Oatmeal Raisin cookie. These have that great balance of being sweet but not to sweet, with that great oatmeal texture. Out of the three these are actually my favorite.
