These orange marmalade oatmeal cookies are naturally gluten-free, dairy-free (ghee and coconut oil) and egg-free.  They are highly addictive and super easy to make from scratch.

Gluten-free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free Orange Marmalade Cookies

It’s not something we make often, but I wanted to make a gluten-free Chicken L’Orange recipe as a special treat for Christmas dinner.  

So I found gluten-free marmalade (Bonne Maman) and the recipe only required two tablespoons. So what was I going to do with the rest of it?  I’m not a huge fan of marmalade on it’s own so I wouldn’t really like it on toast.  

And you know I hate to waste food.  So I thought why not try to bake something with it.  To sweeten up the marmalade and not let it just go to waste.

I thought why don’t I adapt my recipe for cranberry oatmeal cookies (in my ecookbook) into some type of orange marmalade oatmeal cookies.  And on the first try they were delicious.  I could have devoured them all.  You are going to love them!

Orange Marmalade Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are made with gluten-free orange marmalade, ghee (you can use a butter substitute or vegan butter instead), and coconut oil.

Sugar is usually sprayed with glyphosate, so we try to keep it clean and use an organic brand. Wholesome Sweet is a great brand that sells organic fair trade raw cane sugar.

For the gluten-free flour we use a blend of almond flour, coconut flour and potato starch. Let’s Do… Organic makes a great unsweetened flaked coconut.

As for the certified gluten-free oats, try to also find an organic brand as well. You want them to be certified gluten-free because oats are usually grown next to wheat and there is potential for cross-contamination. Also, they started spraying glyphosate (Round-up) on oats as a desiccant to dry them out before harvesting. So there is a lot of it on them and so you’ll be better off finding an organic brand.

You get one life - do your best to ENJOY IT! So hi, I'm Deana. This food blog is all about cooking wholesome real food and developing gluten-free recipes for some of our favorite comfort foods. I had to start eating gluten-free in 2010, then cut dairy and casein (except for the occasional Parmesan) in 2014. We learned A2 casein (goat, sheep and buffalo milk) is easier to digest than the predominate A1 form in cow milk. So we brought back goat milk dairy into our recipes in 2016. Thank goodness, right! So I'm kind of a science nerd, too. In the '90s, I earned an undergrad degree in biochemistry from The University of Texas at Austin. Hook 'em! Then followed up with a PhD in biochemistry and a law degree from the University of Houston. I recently earned a certificate in genomics/sequence analysis from Johns Hopkins University, where I also took a very cool food microbiology course. Currently, I'm learning about the microbiome and gut health. And trying to come up with healthy recipes to feed those gut bugs! #feedthegutbugs
