Recipe Notes

Vegan Gluten Free Orange Cookies


Vegan Gluten Free Lemon Cookies

The oat flour creates a very creamy texture. The kind that sticks to the roof of your mouth (which is why I didn't bother to make icing for these. They didn't need it!). The almond flour is a little more nutty, but nothing close to crumbly. (Look closely at the pictures: the lemon cookies were made with almond flour, the orange with oat.) You could also substitute another GF baking flour. The textures will be various shades of smooth, and the flavor is consistent.
