Grain-Free “Oatmeal” Cookies with Marshmallow Filling and “Cooking for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet” Book Review

by Deliciously Organic on August 1, 2013

Grain-Free "Oatmeal" Cookies with Marshmallow Filling

I enjoy promoting great products I believe in and companies I can stand behind. More than that, I like helping fellow bloggers. Erica’s site  Comfy Belly provides useful resources for those following a grain-free, Paleo, gluten-free or Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD). Her straight-forward and easy-to-follow recipes provide helpful guidance and ideas. Some of my favorites on her site include cinnamon bun muffins, thai chicken salad, and popovers.

I was delighted to learn Erica has a new cookbook, Cooking for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. It contains over 100 refined sugar-free, gluten-free and grain-free recipes (many are also dairy-free). She has plenty of baked goods, sweet treats, vegetables and mock starches, soups, stews, and condiments. If you’ve been looking for great, familiar grain-free recipes, I recommend this book for your kitchen.

One recipe that stood out to me was the “Oatmeal” cookies with marshmallow filling. We were packing last week for a road trip, so I whipped up a batch of these for the kids. The coconut flakes and cinnamon give the flavor and texture of an oatmeal cookie without the grain. You can eat them alone or add a quick and easy marshmallow filling. I plan to make these quick cookies without the filling and store them in the freezer for a school lunch treat.

Grain-Free "Oatmeal" Cookies with Marshmallow Filling

Serving Size: Makes 16 three-inch cookies or 8 cream pies

Recipe from Cooking for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (used with permission)

Ingredients

    For the cookies:
  • 1 cup smooth almond butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • For the frosting:
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350ºF and adjust rack to middle position. Place almond butter, honey, egg and vanilla in the bowl of a standing mixer. Mix on medium speed until blended.

Place shredded coconut, cinnamon, baking soda, and sea salt in a medium bowl and whisk until thoroughly mixed. Pour dry ingredients into almond butter mixture and mix until blended. Stir in raisins. 



Scoop cookie dough using a 1 1/2-inch cookie scoop and place each dough ball onto a baking sheet lined with unbleached parchment paper. Space the cookie dough balls about 1-inch apart. Bake for 12 minutes until just golden brown. Cool completely.

For the frosting:

Pour the honey or maple syrup into a small saucepan and heat over medium-low heat until liquid reaches 220ºF. 

Place the egg whites, lemon juice and vanilla into the bowl of a standing mixer and whisk on medium-high using the whisk attachment until stiff peaks form. While the mixer is running, very slowly add the hot honey to the egg whites (the entire process should take about 30 seconds).

To assemble:

Place one cookie bottom-side up on a work surface. Spread about 2 tablespoons of frosting on the cookie. Top with another cookie. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve.

Cookies (without frosting) can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week in the refrigerator. Whoopie pies are best eaten the day they are assembled.

Would it work to make them with the fiiling and then freeze? Or does the filling not freeze well?

Reply

Deliciously Organic August 1, 2013 at 12:53 pm

The filling is delicate b/c of the egg whites so it doesn’t freeze well. It’s best to make the filling just before serving.

These look so good. One question, do the egg whites end up cooked in some way? I’ve never been fond of raw eggs.

Reply

Laurie August 1, 2013 at 8:32 am

Adding the 220 degree honey to the egg whites should temper them enough to consider them cooked :) It doesn’t take much heat to cook egg whites.

Is there another ingredient that can be used to make it egg free?

Reply

Erica August 5, 2013 at 8:37 am

Hi Denise.
I haven’t tried to make these egg-free yet, but I know some folks have success using the “flaxseed” substitute for eggs and it works quite often. Because there’s no flour here (ground almonds) I think it will work. Here’s the formula for replacing flaxseed meal with eggs: 1 tablespoon of flax meal + 3 tablespoons of warm water = 1 egg

And here are some other egg sub ideas:

1/2 mashed banana = 1 egg
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce = 1 egg
4 ounces of pureed prune (baby food) = 1 egg

Hope that helps!
Best wishes,
Erica

I would love to learn how to cook like this. It’s completely different from anything I’ve ever tried. I’m so used to the flour-sugar-butter-eggs way of doing things, and I LOVE to do it … but I really want my family to be as healthy as possible, and to feel our best … I’ve had more and more health problems as I’ve gotten older, and wonder if my modern diet isn’t the cause… If I won this cookbook, I feel like I could learn a whole new method of cooking, eating … and possibly living. Maybe Paleo/Grain-free/Gluten-free is the ticket to my revival!

Reply

Laura September 14, 2013 at 12:30 pm

Changing your diet can do amazing things! I doubt it’s ALL bad (flour-sugar-butter-eggs sounds pretty wholesome actually). But lots of people have sensitivity to gluten and/or dairy. I seem to tolerate gluten ok, but dairy I am hit or miss. And we have a nut allergy so there goes lots of the dairy substitutes!

Jackey Perry August 7, 2013 at 11:23 am

I am over the moon about these cookies! Great with the cream or without. I used maple syrup for the cream and couldn’t believe how much it tasted like real marshmallow. I will never make another oatmeal raisin cookie again! Delish!

Reply

Amy August 13, 2013 at 6:58 am

Made these cookies last night and they were wonderful. I tried to make the cream and it turned out “ok”. Doesn’t look quite as stiff as your pictures above, not sure what I did wrong. Thanks for the great cookie recipe.

Deliciously Organic August 13, 2013 at 11:10 am

Is it possible that the maple syrup or honey was too hot or that it wasn’t whipped enough? Those are the first two things off the top of my head. Erica did a great job developing this cookie recipe! I’ll pass on the compliments to her. :)

I am THRILLED to see a new SCD cookbook!! There is so little published information on the diet (I own about four cookbooks :)) I have Chron’s and following SCD has literally changed my health. Having recently also been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s- these two blogs mean more to my health and life than I can say. Thank you both for your efforts!

Reply

Paulette January 28, 2014 at 1:55 pm

It would be great if these were not called oatmeal cookies – kind of misleading even though it clearly states without oats. To me this name means that the only change from a standard oatmeal cookies is the lack of oats – using coconut flakes is sheer genius for getting that lovely texture. They should be called Coconut almond cookies or something similar then talk all one wants about the similarity to oatmeal cookie texture. The addition of almond butter (not expected in a standard oatmeal cookie) is a concern for those with allergies – no issue if the baker is making them but potentially an issue of you are making them for others (a group say) and you don’t know of allergy concerns. (Yes the allergic person should always ask, but hey – why leave things to a chance lack of vigilance). I will definitely play with this recipe subbing out the almond butter (because of allergy concerns). It had not previously occurred to me to use coconut flakes in a cookie this way.

Reply

Sarah November 14, 2014 at 9:29 am

The name is not misleading at all. I understood exactly what it meant. And who cares that you can’t make these for a group of people without asking about allergies? Sometimes I can’t believe the trouble people go to typing up a big negative paragraph. About a cookie.
P.S. These look great, I will be trying them asap!

I think these will be fantastic if I can get the timing right. I made them tonight and they burned at 12 min. I tried the next pan at 10 min. and they were still hard and slightly burned on the bottom. The flavor is so good that I’m trying them again and will watch VERY carefully. Might just be me! Thanks for the great idea though!

Thanks for the awesome recipe! I made these without the filling simply because I’m trying to cut back on calories. They were absolutely amazing!! Can’t wait to try more of your recipes!!

So there really is no oatmeal in the recipe?

Right. That’s why I had parenthesis around the word “oatmeal”. But you’ll be surprised how much they taste like the real thing! :)
