Brilliant for both starting and ending the day with.
Who doesn’t want cookies for breakfast?! This little gem is packed with rolled oats and a plethora of fruit. It’s chewy and soft and ideal for breakfast on the run, school lunch boxes, or an afternoon pick me up. Pro tip: I like to pop these babies in the microwave and crumble on top of a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Side note- if you prefer your cookies with gluten, this recipe can easily substitute all-purpose flour instead of gluten-free flour.
225 grams butter, softened
220 grams dark brown sugar
220 grams granulated sugar
2 whole eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

3 cups gluten-free rolled oats
1/2 cup dried strawberries, chopped
1/2 cup dried blueberries
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup currants

In the first bowl, cream together the butter and sugars for five minutes.
Add the second bowl to the butter and sugar mixture and continue to mix for an additional two minutes.
Whisk together the dry ingredients in the third bowl and add to the butter, sugar, and egg mixture. Mix until evenly combined.
Fold in the dried fruits in the fourth bowl ensuring the are equally distributed throughout.
Chill the cookie dough for thirty minutes.
Portion the cookie dough with a medium cookie scoop or large spoon. Freeze portioned dough for at least one hour or up to one week.
