Recipe: Gluten Free Toddler Oatmeal 'Cookies'

     I put 'cookies' in quotations on purpose.  These are definitely not your yummy adult crispy oatmeal cookies.  No, these are crumble-in-your-mouth, kids-don't-realize-they're-healthy 'cookies'.  My husband says they're flavorless, but the boys LOVE them. I wasn't going for sweet cookies, in fact these are actually only sweetened with honey. I was going for something for the boys to snack on that would be filling, and healthy.  I was also hoping to go for low-carb but considering these have 8g per cookie, THAT didn't happen (well not for Boaz anyways). Anyways, I hope your family finds these cookies toddler approved! 


1 1/2 T Grass-fed Butter
1 T        Peanut Butter 
1 T        Local Honey
2 t         Vanilla 
1 c        Rice flour 
3/4 t      Baking Soda 
1/2 T     Chia Seed
1 c        Oats
1/4 c     Milk
1/4 c     Coconut Oil 
Cinnamon, Nutmeg to taste 

Preheat oven to 350. Mix butter, peanut butter, honey, and vanilla in a bowl. Add flour, and baking soda and stir. Add in the milk and coconut oil and stir until just combined. And spices, oats, and Chia seeds.  Spoon onto cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 mins. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight to set.  Makes about 24.
