Apricot Oat Crunchies- Cookies That Are GF Or Not!

Pin It

These Apricot Oat Cookies have a lot of good things in them- dried apricots, oatmeal, cornflakes and coconut.  The result is a lot of great flavors and a fun texture.  This cookie is great anytime and I love making it during the holidays because it looks beautiful as part of a plate of mixed cookies.

The recipe for this cookie is very versatile because you could substitute any other dried fruit in place of the apricots.

These cookies are very quick to put together- the part that takes the longest is cutting up the dried apricots.

You will notice that I used 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum in this recipe.  It needed the gum because the baked cookies fell apart when I made them without it.  I only use xanthan gum if the recipe needs it.

    What a great collection of cookie recipes you have in this post, Andrea, and I really like the look and sound of your Apricot Oat Crunchies. They would be perfect with a cup of tea for a special treat. I like how flexible the recipe is too, with the option of switching up the dried fruit, and the GF version.

    Hi Andrea,

    I can tell these are super good! We must be on the same wavelength. I’m also working on an apricot oatmeal recipe (I’m trying to copycat a store bought granola bar that my husband loves). I just adore dried apricots. Thanks so much for sharing with us on AFW! Can’t wait to see what you whip up for next week!!

    Be Well,
