Gluten-Free Oatmeal Cookies Recipe
You are probably thinking that cookie season is over now that the holidays have passed. Cookie season never really passes for one, and two – we have several other foodie holidays coming up like Valentines Day and Easter.
Gluten-Free Oatmeal Cookies aren’t attached to a holiday, which makes them a year-round cookie. And a favorite of mine. Especially this gluten-free oatmeal cookie recipe.
We’ve never talked about purity protocol oats here on Gluten-Free Palate, but I think it’s important that I at least highlight a few things. I don’t claim to be an expert on cross contamination, or gluten-testing, so please don’t think that my words are golden words, but separation vs. never-touched are pretty clear when it comes to oats.
Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
We like to add chocolate chips to make gluten free oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, but you don’t have to. Simply add the chocolate chips when you add the oatmeal to these gluten free oatmeal cookies, and stir them in.
Oatmeal used in Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies
Purity protocol oats can vary but really the goal is to eliminate contamination of oats. Purity protocol means they are grown with care not to contaminate the crops AND they are processed in a dedicated facility.
Very few companies have what’s considered to be purity protocol oats. GF Harvest is just one that we love. There are several companies that process oats, who have the gluten-free label on their packaging, that still risk cross contamination.
While oats themselves are naturally gluten-free, if processed in a facility that processes other gluten containing grains, they can become contaminated. I’m not saying that they do. I’m saying the CAN.
While people who are gluten-intolerant are not always impacted by oats that may have been processed in a facility with wheat, people who are Celiac should never take that risk (this is my opinion).
Ultimately it’s up to you to read labels and make the decision on whether or not you feel comfortable eating oats that are not considered purity protocol oats.
If you have a favorite brand of oats and you’ve had no issues, then please continue to enjoy your oats. We used purity protocol oats when we made these gluten free oatmeal cookies.
