Big and Chewy Healthy Oatmeal Cookies with Orange Citrus Icing

Big and Chewy Healthy Oatmeal Cookies with Orange Citrus Icing

Big and chewy healthy oatmeal cookies with orange citrus icing–it’s quite a mouthful but every word is extremely important in the description of these cookies. I debated whether or not to add gluten-free, refined sugar-free, high in protein with a vegan option to the title. What do you think? Probably best the way I left it. Now you know that besides these cookies being big, chewy, healthy oatmeal cookies with orange citrus icing they are also everything else I listed above–and absolutely delicious, of course!

When I was little, I was always one of those weird kids that actually loved oatmeal cookies. In fact, I preferred them over most cookies. Weirdo–I know! Now that I’m adult, it’s much more accepted for an oatmeal cookie to be your favorite kind and I embrace it for all it’s worth. Bring on the oatmeal cookies!!!


For these oatmeal cookies, I added almonds and flax meal just for funsies. No, I’m kidding. I did have a specific reason in doing so. The almonds adds a little extra crunch and the flax adds a little fiber. Can’t go wrong with either, right? Along with almonds and flax, I added protein powder. I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla Select Protein. Get 30% off using my affiliate code PBCHOCO at checkout on their website www.pescience.com. For a vegan option, use a plant based protein (PEScience has that as well).

Can we take a second to admire how beautiful thee cookies are and they taste just as good as they look. Only way to find out is to make them for yourself!

Big and chewy healthy oatmeal cookies with orange citrus icing.

Ingredients

    for the cookies
  • 3/4 c gluten-free oat flour
  • 3/4 c gluten-free rolled oats
  • 32g vanilla protein powder, vegan if necessary PEScience 30% off code PBCHOCO
  • 1/4 c granulated zero calorie sweetener Swerve
  • 1/4 c coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 c + 1 tbsp maple syrup (sugar-free works as well)
  • 1/4 c slivered almonds
  • 1 tbsp ground flax
  • 2 tbsp orange juice
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch sea salt
  • zest of 1 orange
    for the icing
  • 1/4 c zero calorie confectioners sweetener Swerve
  • 1 tbsp orange juice
    other (optional)
  • dried orange slices

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place all dry cookie ingredients into a bowl and stir until combined. Add in the wet ingredients and mix until a sticky dough forms. Separate the dough into 8 evenly sized balls. To keep dough from sticking to your hands too much, wash your hands after rolling every 2 balls.
  3. Press the balls flat onto the parchment paper. Top with dried orange slices if desired and bake for 16-18 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Remove from the oven and let cool. Once cooled, stir together the icing ingredients and drizzle over cookies. Serve.

Notes

You can replace confectioners sugar with protein powder for the icing. Be mindful of liquid amount used. You may need to add more or less orange juice until you have reached a desired consistency.

Blueberry Lemon & Thyme Gluten Free Galette

Blueberry Lemon & Thyme Gluten Free Galette

This rustic and simple blueberry lemon and thyme gluten free galette is a perfect way to celebrate spring time! This gluten-free galette recipe is bursting with blueberries and a hint of lemon flavor.

If you are an incredibly simple (aka lazy) baker–this gluten free galette is for you!

Galettes are essentially pies for the simple folk. The best part about them? The more you mess them up, the more rustic they start to look. Basically, this is a fool proof recipe that tastes just as good as a well constructed pie.


Lets talk berries. The berries are the easiest part of this gluten free galette recipe. Soak them in sweetener, lemon juice and tapioca flour for 20-25 minutes before you dump them in your galette. That’s all! No pre-cooking required.

What’s in the dough? I know, I know this gluten free galette recipe calls for grass fed butter and I don’t often use butter in my recipes but the crust will taste so much better with butter, just trust me. The butter may be replaced with vegan butter or solid coconut oil. If you using coconut oil, know going into it that the dough will not be as moldable as if you were using butter or ghee. Using coconut oil will make the crust difficult to fold.

Blueberry Lemon & Thyme Gluten Free Galette

This rustic and simple blueberry lemon and thyme gluten free galette is a perfect way to celebrate spring time! 

Ingredients

    for the crust
  • 1/2 c gluten-free baking flour
  • 3 tbsp grass fed butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp cold water
  • pinch sea salt
    for the filling
  • 1/3 c fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp tapioca flour or starch
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • zest of half a lemon
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves + more for topping
    other
  • almond milk for brushing

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, toss together all filling ingredients. Let sit for 20-25 minutes.
  2. Prepare your dough by placing all dough ingredients (except water) into a food processor and blitz until small crumbles form. Add in the water and continue blending until a dough forms. Roll the dough on a well dusted surface until it's about 1/8 inch in thickness. Try and get it as close to a circle as your can but it doesn't have to be perfect.
  3. Drain all juice from your berry mixture and dump berries into the center of the dough leaving about 1 inch around the edges. Fold the edges inward. Brush the crust with almond milk. Bake for 30-40 minutes at 350 F.
  4. Serve warm with your favorite healthy ice cream!

Notes

butter can be replaced with ghee, vegan butter or solid coconut oil but keep in mind the texture will change
