Lemon-Lavender & Macadamia Nut Oatmeal Cookies. Sugar- and Gluten-free.

 

Gluten-free Sugar-free Lemon Lavender Cookies by An Unrefined Vegan

These crumbly, shortbready oatmeal cookies taste like summer to me with bright lemon and warm lavender. They get a little crunch from macadamia nuts and a bit of chew from the oats. They’re the perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea sipped on a late, sunny summer afternoon as you take in the breeze on the shady back porch.

What’s to love about:

Oats:

  • rich in dietary fiber
  • regular consumption may help prevent heart disease and help lower blood pressure
  • may lower the risk of colorectal cancer

Lavender:

  • a powerful anti-fungal that works by destroying the cell’s membrane
  • helps heal wounds and soothe rashes and bug bites
  • has a calming effect and helps reduce anxiety, insomnia, and depression

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup gluten-free flour blend
  2. 1 tsp. baking powder
  3. 1 tsp. arrowroot powder
  4. 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  5. 1/3 cup coconut butter
  6. 1/4 cup coconut milk
  7. 1 Tbsp. flaxseed meal + 3 Tbsp. water
  8. 1 1/2 tsp. lemon-flavored liquid stevia
  9. zest of 1 small lemon
  10. 1/2 cup toasted macadamia nuts, roughly chopped

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350-degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and arrowroot powder.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix the applesauce, coconut butter, coconut milk, flaxseed meal/water, stevia, and lemon zest until creamy. Add the nuts and lavender and pulse a few times to incorporate into the dough.

    Aah, summer. I would very happily sit on the back porch with a stack of these cookies and a nice cup of tea or two.
