Soaked Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

I decided to delete this post because several people have not had the best luck in trying it.  I didn’t do as much testing of it as I should have! They turned out well for me, so maybe I will go back and test it sometime soon for a little more consistency.

Here’s a recipe for a baked oatmeal cake (that also calls for soaking the oats first) that might be a good substitute!

My apologies!

  1. My son is gluten free, would soaking his gluten free oats work the same way? What would u soak them in and for how long? If omitting the dates and adding cranberrys or blueberries how much honey would u use to sweeten it?

    1. Hi there, Kim! Yes, GF oats would work just the same. In the ingredients list next to oats is the description of how to soak them. And I’m not sure how much extra honey you would need to add. I’d just start with a little, mix it in, taste, and then add more until you get the level of sweetness you want! Good luck! I’d love to know how they turn out!

      1. Ill let u know gonna attempt to make them next week. Thanks for the quick reply.

  2. I told u I would let u know how they turned out so here goes. I soaked the gluten free oats for 24 hrs in apple cider vinager then rinsed and drained and rinsed and drained again. I didn’t add any fruit to it the person I made them for doesn’t like dried fruit. I used honey as sweetener and added a little extra plus some finely chopped nuts and chocolate chips. He prefers bars so I mashed the mixture into a bread loaf pan and chilled all night. Then cut and served the next morning. Just to be honest they turned out nasty melt in ur hand before even taking a bite. Any one know how to fix this?

    1. Oh no! I am so sorry to hear that! I can’t really vouch for results that are so different from the original recipe, though. The dates are a key part of the bars holding together. But I’m sorry these didn’t turn out well for you!

  3. The cookies don’t hold together too well. It makes it hard to take them as snacks for the kids. Could I add an egg or 2 and bake it?

    1. Hey there! I am so sorry to hear that these didn’t hold together very well for you. I think you could definitely try adding an egg or two and baking it, though I don’t know exactly how that would turn out. I am sorry! Here’s a recipe for baked oatmeal that my sister-in-law cuts out as bars– this recipe adds baking soda as well as eggs, so maybe look at this recipe and see if it would be useful!
