We absolutely love our fans! Michelle is a blogger from A Little Moore from My Kitchen who has used Kelapo Coconut Oil in many of her gluten-free recipes. Being an avid runner, mom, and on a mission to fulfill a healthier lifestyle, she creates recipes that are a healthier alternative to most tasty treats that we all enjoy. From seeing a plethora of her delicious recipes that use coconut oil instead of butter or other oils, we wanted to feature her Apricot Oatmeal Cookies. I have a new-found obsession for apricots, so I was extremely excited when Michelle posted this recipe! Let’s take a look at why she created these:
“By now you have probably noticed that I have a thing for oatmeal cookies. I am not sure why, but they are the ultimate cookie to me. I do know that many with celiacs cannot tolerate oats, and for that I do apologize. I have yet to come up with the perfect gluten free flour blend for cookies and so that may be part of the reason that oatmeal have been my go to so far.
While at Trader Joe’s the other day, I picked up a package of their unsulfured, unsweetened dried apricots. I happen to love those little guys. Over the weekend, my baking wheels started turning and I thought they would make a great binder for cookies. I dropped 24 of them into my Ninja blender and ground them down to a sticky paste. I did add my oat flour to them in the blender so that they weren’t nearly as sticky. There isn’t a big apricot flavor to the cookies. They are a great texture, moist and chewy. In my opinion, that’s how oatmeal cookies should be!” -Michelle from A Little Moore From My Kitchen
