Oatmeal Cookies (Gluten-free, Sugar-free and Dairy-free)

These yummy cookies are wonderful just as shown.  However, they are especially good with white chocolate chunks in them.  If you choose to add white chocolate, use a quality brand like Callebaut. A healthier option would be to use raisins, dried cranberries, cherries or cocoa nibs.

Oatmeal Cookies with Nuts

1/2 c melted organic butter from grass-fed cows (or ghee)
1/2 c coconut nectar
1 egg beaten (organic from grass-fed cows)
1 T  buttermilk, (use coconut kefir or coconut yogurt for dairy-free version)
1 t vanilla
1 c almond meal
2 T coconut flour
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t baking powder
1/8 t coriander
1 c rolled oats
1/2 c walnuts or pecans
1/2 c white chocolate chips, raisins, dried cranberries, dried cherries or cocoa nibs (optional)

Add Coconut Nectar to melted butter or ghee and cool.  Stir in egg, buttermilk and vanilla.

In another bowl combine rest of ingredients together.  Add wet to dry ingredients being careful to stir just until ingredients are combined.  Use a spring release scoop to make 12 cookies on a silpat covered baking sheet.  Bake at 350 for 12 minutes.  Allow cookies to cool completely before removing from pan.
