Orange Oaties

Orange Oaties


  • 3/4 cups honey
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup Postitively Free™ Instant Oats (toasted, if desired)
  • 1 1/2 cup Baking Free™ gluten-free all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 orange (just the zest, finely shredded)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum


These cookies stay slightly sticky.  Every cookie recipe I've ever baked with honey stay a little sticky.  Taste great though!


Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside. Toast oats in a dry frying pan 1/2 cup at a time until golden.
Step 2
Put the honey and orange juice in a small pan and simmer over low heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thick and syrupy.
Step 3
Put the oats, flour, sugar, xanthan gum and orange zest in a bowl. Mix the baking soda with one tablespoon boiling water and add to the flour mixture together with the honey orange syrup. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
Step 4
Place spoonfuls of the dough on the prepared baking sheets, spacing slightly apart, and bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Leave to cool on the sheets for 7 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 16 cookies.
