Allergy Free Maple Glazed Oatmeal Cookies

I told my hubby I was going to make oatmeal cookies.  He was not very excited.  But I made them anyway.  I grabbed one from the oven and handed it to him.  He took a bite and stood there for a few minutes.  All he said was, "Wow!" We have a winner!  .....And there's someone in my house who will no longer complain about oatmeal cookies.  He only ate about 10 of them today alone. 

These are yummy cookies that remind me of Christmas.  The blend of cinnamon and nutmeg with the maple frosting is perfection!  They are more on the crunchy side so I think the glaze is totally necessary.  Also, they are even better on the second day-they are a little softer.

Maple Glazed Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup Earth Balance, melted
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tsp egg replacer whisked with 4 T original hemp milk
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 T baking powder
2 cups quick oats
2 cups flour blend
1 tsp xanthan gum

Combine sugars and melted butter in large bowl.  Mix well.
Add in egg replacer and stir well.
Fold in remaining dry ingredients, mixing only until just blended.
Chill in fridge for 30 minutes.
Drop by spoonfuls on parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake at 350 for 12-13 minutes.
Cool on sheets for a few minutes before removing to wire rack. 

Maple Glaze
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/8-1/4 cup vanilla hemp milk

Whisk together, starting with 1/8 cup vanilla hemp milk.  Add more milk only if needed.  Drizzle over cookies. 

Let glaze set up and harden before storing cookies.  It will take several hours.
