Birthday Cookies

My dad had a big birthday last month... I guess I'll be nice & not say just how big ;) 
But I felt it was an occasion worth celebrating. 
So I made his favorite cookies & sent a package! 
These are my favorite cookies to make because everyone loves them. Everyone!
They're a crispy-yet-still-chewy oatmeal cookie packed with craisins & walnuts and topped with white chocolate. 
What's not to love? 
They're also really fun for holidays because they're pretty :) 
And since the holidays seem to be upon us I thought I'd share the recipe. 
Send some to someone you love. 
Or maybe to someone you whose love you're trying to win... 

Sugar Mama Cookie

1/2 c Spectrum organic shortening1/2 c Earth Balance vegan butter

1 c dark brown sugar
2 TB agave nectar (not neccessarily required but it makes them super chewy!)
1 TB flax meal mixed + 3 TB hot water
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp xanthan gum
2 c gluten free flour mix
2 c gluten free oats
1/2 c craisins
1/2 c chopped walnuts
white chocolate

Cream shortening, butter, sugar & agave. 
Add flax+water mixture. 
Mix in dry ingredients. 
Stir in oats, craisins & walnuts. 
Drop by tablespoon or ice cream scoop onto cookie sheet. 
Bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees F. 
Cool on a cooling rack. 
Melt white chocolate (or dark chocolate is also delish) and drizzle on top of cookies. 


  1. Wow, these look amazing! I will have to try them!

  2. Yum! I could never come across these ingredients where I live, but the idea of a craisin white chocolate cookie sounds great. They look so pretty with the drizzle. I'm visiting from Together in the Kitchen today. Have a great weekend, Ashley.

  3. I've never had oatmeal cookies with frosting and it just seems like they all should have some! I cannot wait to try this, especially because I'm giving gluten-free a try here pretty soon :) Thank you so much, Love this linkup!
