Krispy Cookies

A recipe:

Krispy Cookies (gluten free)

Makes 1-1/2 dozen cookies

¾ cup oats
½ cup gluten free flour (any kind should work)
½ t. baking soda
½ t. baking powder
½ t. salt
½ t. xantham gum
3 T. canola oil
½ cup applesauce
¼ cup natural sugar
¼ cup maple syrup
1-1/2 t. vanilla
1 cup rice krispies
¾ cup chocolate chips (or carob)
¼ cup peanuts (or any other nuts you like)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mix together the oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and xantham gum.

In a separate bowl, mix together the oil, applesauce, sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla. Stir the wet mixture into the dry and mix well. Stir in the rice krispies, chocolate chips, and peanuts.

Drop heaping tablespoons of cookie mixture onto baking sheet (I used a cookie scoop) and flatten slightly. Bake 13 to 14 minutes or until cookies are set and edges are golden. Let cool a few minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

Extra delicious while still warm.

Like all your baked goods, they look magnificent. I love anything with rice krispies (I love the crackle as you eat them!) so these cookies sound delicious to me!

These look amazing,I tried using rice krispies in cookies some time back but found the krispies became softer when baked,did yours remain crunchy ?

Usha, the krispies don't stay crispy for very long, but the peanuts do!

Mihl, yes, guar gum for xantham is okay.

I've never met a cookie I didn't like, ever! These look so yummy I want to go make them right now (rather than go for my run!)

Hey there - no, not an annual fast (my last was a year and a half ago), though I would like to make it an annual thing.

I'm going to have to quit looking at food blogs soon for a few days, methinks :P
