I invented these for a gluten-intolerant friend. They're very simple and delicious. —verysmallanna

  • Makes 3 dozen
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried lavender
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons melted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened dessicated coconut
  • 2/3 cup raw oats
In This Recipe
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Grind the sugar and lavender in a prep food processor or a mortar and pestle until the lavender is finely ground throughout the sugar.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, beat the egg. Add the lavender-sugar mixture and mix well. Stir in the remaining ingredients.
  4. Drop the dough by half-teaspoons onto a lined baking sheet (parchment is fine but I preferred the shinier bottoms that a Silpat yielded), about an inch apart.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes, until the edges are lightly golden brown. Allow to cool fully before removing from sheet.
