Gluten-Free Banana Oatmeal Cookies

These Gluten-Free Banana Oatmeal cookies are soft, flavorful, and have a great chewy texture.  You'd never know they're gluten-free cookies - and they're easy to make, too!

YOU WILL NEED: GF Rolled Oats Sorghum Flour Light Buckwheat Flour Coconut Flour Ripe Bananas Unsalted Butter Brown & White Sugars Raisins or Nuts, Optional Lard Large Egg Vanilla Extract Baking Soda Cinnamon Ground Cloves Xanthan Gum Salt

In a large bowl, mix together oats, flours, baking soda, spices, salt, and xanthan gum, set aside.

Cream butter and lard together until smooth.  Add sugars, a little at a time, until fully combined and fluffy.

Mash the bananas into the creamed butters and sugars. Add egg and vanilla to the banana sugar mixture, continue beating until well combined and smooth.

Pour sugar mixture and raisins - if using - into the dry ingredients, mix just until well combined.     Cover - or wrap in plastic wrap - and chill for 1 hour

Use an ice cream scoop to portion out cookies onto prepared baking sheets, leaving 2" between each of them.

Using clean wet fingers, slightly flatten each cookie. Bake until golden brown. Enjoy!
