Ingredients For Peach And Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies

  1. Gluten free rolled oats (choose certified gluten free rolled oats if you’re worried about cross contamination)
  2. Apple sauce (as butter substitute, you can also use mashed bananas in case you don’t have applesauce).
  3. Flax seeds (as egg substitute, they have good binding properties plus fiber).
  4. Oil – grape seed or avocado oil (for chewier crispier cookies). If not using oil you’ll get puffier and more cake-like cookies.
  5. Tigernut flour (or almond flour) to provide structure, or use any flour you like.
  6. Fresh peaches (as an alternative, apple or mango works too).
  7. Fresh blueberries (or other berries you like).
  8. Maple sugar (or coconut sugar) – the crystals help with caramelization of the cookie surface.
  9. Baking soda + lemon juice (as leavening agent, no baking powder needed)

What Oats To Use For Making Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies

For making these oatmeal cookies with blueberries and peaches I suggest you stick to old fashioned rolled oats and not quick oats.

Also if you’re strongly susceptible to gluten, it’s important to get certified (batch-tested) gluten-free oats (preferably organic), as the regular ones are often contaminated with pesticides and with gluten during processing. Sometimes people are sensitive to gluten free oats not because there might be something wrong with them but because they are heavily contaminated with pesticides. The oats, soybeans and wheat are the heaviest sprayed among all crops.

How To Make Healthy Oatmeal Cookies With Blueberries

Step 1. Prepare the blueberries and peaches:

  • Wash the fruits if necessary and cut the peach into small cubes. Set aside.
  • I used fresh peach chunks and wild blueberries for these oatmeal cookies because they were in season. These fruits are best used fresh (and ripe) because of their extra flavor and juiciness, but you could also use frozen fruits.

Step 2. Soak the rolled oats:

  • Cover the oats with water and let them soak for 10 minutes, then discard the water and let them drain through a sieve while preparing the rest.
  •  If you want your oatmeal cookies crispier, don’t soak the oats. Just add them along with the flour.

Step 3. Make the egg replacer:

  • Mix the apple sauce and the flax seeds – this combination is acting like an egg substitution is the best solution for making eggless oatmeal cookies.

Make the oatmeal cookie dough then spread into portions onto a cookie sheet.

Step 4. Then add the rest to form the oatmeal cookie dough:

  • To the apple sauce and flax seed mixture add the salt, oil, stevia (or your favorite sweetener) the flour, and the oats (soaked). Mix gently to combine.
  • At the end add the baking soda+ lemon juice, give it another final gentle mix (don’t overmix), the formation of bubbles will help the cookies puff up a bit. If you prefer hard crisp oatmeal cookies, skip this step.

Step 5. Spread The Cookies:

  • Heat the oven to 360°F. Using a spoon or cookie scoop, drop the cookie dough (about 2 tablespoons) into 14-15 portions onto the lined baking sheet with parchment paper.  Add the peach (small chunks) and blueberries on top.
  • Sprinkle with maple sugar on top. It’s optional, but it helps to form that top crunchy crust). The maple sugar will also add that caramelized yummy look / flavor that makes these healthy oatmeal cookies perfect along with the tartness of the fruits.
Arrange blueberries and peach chunks on top of oatmeal cookies and sprinkle with you preferred granulated sugar (I used maple sugar) to form a crisp golden crust.

Step 6. Bake The Cookies:

  • Bake at 360°F for about 35 minutes.
  • Cool on the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. 
  • Enjoy these vegan oatmeal cookies for breakfast, as snack or on the go.

Eggless Oatmeal Cookies With Blueberries

  • In most cookie recipes, eggs or butter mixed with cream is usually used to provide body and texture. Since these are gluten free eggless cookies, I’m replacing the eggs with apple sauce and ground flax seeds. This combination will provide some shape but also moisture and chewiness.
  • To make oatmeal cookies without butter is possible, but you need to add some oil if you want chewy crispy cookies. If you’re not going to use oil, you’ll get puffier and more cake-like cookies. So it’s up to you.
  • Of course it’s easy to use a vegan butter for a more buttery flavor, but I prefer to avoid unhealthy oils and artificial flavors and stick to the real food.

Tips For Perfect Oatmeal Blueberry Cookies

  • Watch your blueberry oatmeal cookies very carefully while they are baking – you want to take them out when they are golden but not hard. For crispier cookies, keep them in a turned off oven with the oven door slightly cracked for about 30 minutes.
  • Baking soda and an acidic liquid (vinegar, citrus) helps leaven the dough, creating a soft, fluffy cookie. If you want a hard crisp oatmeal cookie, skip these two ingredients.
  • Bake your oatmeal cookies on baking parchment paper. This helps prevent sticking, burning and it’s easier to clean.
  • Dairy Free Fat: don’t use vegetable oil and vegan margarine – these are highly processed and detrimental to your health. If you must, use a better wholesome alternative like this vegan cultured butter.
  • Soaking the rolled oats in advance will give the cookies more moisture and better texture. Don’t soak the oats for too long (only 10 min) or they will turn into a mushy paste. If you want your cookies crispier, don’t soak the oats and bake for 10 min longer.
  • If you want your eggless oatmeal cookies sweeter, you can add extra sweetener in the batter.

Storing Tips For Oatmeal Cookies

  • Storing leftovers: Keep at room temperature for up to 5 days in an airtight container. These oatmeal blueberry cookies are usually soft and gooey the first day and chewy the next day, so you can make them in the evening and enjoy the next day in the morning.
  • Freezing: Freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
  • Thawing: Let it slowly thaw in your refrigerator for at least 24 hours. Or place it in your preheated oven (350 degrees F) covered (to prevent moisture loss) and heat for 15-20 minutes or until warm.

Notes

Tips For Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies Without Eggs

1. Vanilla extract may be added. Maple sugar can be replaced with coconut sugar.
2. Make sure to prepare (cube) the fruits first before putting together the dough. Once you mixed baking soda and the acid you need to bake the cookies immediately. Otherwise they will not puff up.
3. Fruits that are frozen will work too (only make sure there is no extra liquid).
4. If you want your cookies crispier, don’t soak the oats and bake for 10 min longer.
5. If you want your cookies sweeter, you can add extra sweetener in the batter.

Hi, these cookies sound great. But I have a question. How you soak the rolled oats? I assumed the link in the rolled oats ingredients would lead to directions for this but instead to led to an Amazon listing for the rolled oats. I tried looking online and only found recipes that included soaked oats. Any info would be helpful. Thank you.

You just cover with twice as much cold water and soak them for the necessary time. I usually soak them for an hour, otherwise they turn really mushy.

How are these but free if you’re using tigernut flour or almond flour? Just curious, thank you

You mean if you don't use tigernut or almond flour? They are pretty good too, the tigernut flour would give them a more airy texture, I don't think there would be a much difference in taste though.
