Gluten-Free Oatmeal Shortbread

June2010 038

This easy recipe comes together fast. I should warn you though, that several members of my household independently described these as addictive. So remember, “With great shortbread, comes great responsibility”.

You can find this amazing Gluten-Free Oatmeal Shortbread Recipe at GlutenFree Flavor Full.

This recipe was adapted from Oatmeal Shortbread by Laura at I’m Losing It Here. Laura is not a gluten-free blogger, but I have discovered some delicious recipes on I’m Losing It Here that are either gluten-free or easily adapted. Here are a few of my favorite recipes and the changes I make so they will be gluten free:

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos – I replace the prepared mustard with 2 teaspoons of dry mustard, use gluten free soy sauce, and use corn or rice tortillas instead of flour tortillas.

Chili Pork Burritos – I omit the step where she coats the meat in flour and just cook the meat plain. I use corn or rice tortillas instead of flour tortillas.

Huevos Rancheros – no changes necessary.

Are you inspired by gluten eating bloggers? (I still haven’t figured out what to call people who eat gluten. Well besides lucky that is, but I digress.) Do you have any favorites that you follow? Are you adventurous and try to make their recipes gluten-free?

    HA! Love the responsibility comment :)

    This definitely looks tasty! I've never made shortbread, I but I know I would like this – especially with chocolate on top! haha

  2. I love shortbread, but I've never had an oatmeal version. Sounds yummy. Thanks for linking up.

    Haha on these being addictive and eating responsibly–I believe it though! :-) What brand of butterscotch chips have you found that are gluten free?


  4. I use Hershey's which uses cornstarch. They still have some yucky stuff like partially hydrogenated oils.

    Thanks, Alea! I actually think you told me that before … not sure if any of our local stores carry the Hershey brand of butterscotch chips, but I'll look. I remember oatmeal scotchies with fondness. ;-)
