"This is a recipe I created for a child who can't have dairy, eggs, gluten, corn or sugar. I modified another recipe on this site and it worked out great. I was going to just note my changes in my review of that recipe (Healthy Honey Oatmeal Cookies) but there were so many, I thought it would be easier for people searching for an allergy-free recipe to find it here. NOTE: These bake up soft n puffy, but if you want them flatter,crispier and chewier, melt the coconut oil first. Be sure to allow space between cookies to spread in that case. I've edited this from 1/2 c to 1 cup of flour from based on the helpful reviews."

"This is a great recipe. I served it to friends who eat everything without dairy restrictions and they did not realize it was a very modified cookie.
I used agave syrup instead of maple syrup.
For flours I used a combination of millet, amaranth and buckwheat flours.
Instead of apple butter - which we do not get in Switzerland, I used 1 blended raw apple.
I added dried raisins and dried cranberries.
Thanks for the great idea - I wanted a "treat" from my very restricted dining for a dinner party."
"Added 1.5 cups of a flour mixture of rice flour, tapioca flour and GF white flour. Also I will eliminate the almond extract in future as it made them taste weird. I also added the xanthan gum. Very nice cookies. I got 36 cookies and froze them in bags of 6! Yummy."
"I had to add lots more gf flour and a bit of xanthan gum otherwise these were great! I will try them again. Thanks!"
"yummy. I used honey, all purpose gf flour. I might add a tad of Xanthan next time. We put cashews, currants and coconut in. They did end up puffy rather than thin and crispy even though I used melted coconut oil. Definitely a keeper!<br/><br/>I still haven't got the crispy and chewy not the soft and puffy texture. I love the taste, but the consistency is more like granola than a cookie. Any ideas? I use flax seed instead of egg sub. Could that be the problem? I've tried Xantham gum."
