Gluten-Free Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookie Goodness
If you like our oatmeal cookie recipe, you’re going to LOVE our gluten-free cinnamon oatmeal cookie crumble!
We like to shake them on top of ice cream or even hot or cold cereal. And we admit to eating them out of our hand when we don’t want to invest in (or admit to) eating a whole cookie =)
Best of all, they keep in the freezer for 6 months. So you can make a large batch and use them to add great taste and texture to many moments of your life!
Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookie Crumble: How this Recipe is Better
We added cinnamon to this recipe intentionally. You see, we recognize this is a COOKIE. And, we don’t shy away from it. After all, how sad would life be without cookies?
But we all know sugar can spike your insulin. So we add cinnamon to help keep your blood sugar from spiking. Cinnamon is incredibly powerful. In fact, have you ever gotten a “sugar headache”? You can actually take a half-teaspoon of cinnamon to get rid of it! Just make sure you don’t breathe in through your nose. Try putting the cinnamon on your tongue and then drink it down with water.
Special Diet Features
Our best oatmeal cookies are allergy-friendly and free from wheat/Gluten, dairy, egg, soy, tree nuts (including coconut), peanut, fish, shellfish, the top 8 Allergens, sesame, lupin.
And, though we’d never argue they are diabetic-friendly, they are in the sense of portion control. By having the cookies crumbled, it’s easier to have just a tablespoon to satisfy your craving or wake up your afternoon.

Best Oatmeal Cookie Crumble with Cinnamon

2 tbsp of rice flour
1 egg (or egg substitute)

Shake them on top of ice cream or even hot or cold cereal. We also like to eat them out of our hand when we want to feel like we aren’t eating a whole cookie =)
