Berry Good Oatmeal Cookie Cake cooking and serving ideas

If you’d like to make this Berry Good Oatmeal Cookie Cake recipe gluten free, make sure to use an all-purpose gluten free flour like Bobs Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour.

You’ll also need to use certified gluten free oatmeal like Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Old Fashioned Rolled Oats and gluten free vanilla extract.

To make this oatmeal cookie cake dairy free, use a vegan or non-dairy buttery spread instead of butter and a vegan cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese.

If you're nut free, eliminate the almond extract and add a little more vanilla extract.

You may want to bake and serve this giant oatmeal cookie on a pizza stone or pizza pan. The Wilton Perfect Results Pizza Stone comes with a chrome serving rack.

Or you can bake the Berry Good Oatmeal Cookie Cake on a Lodge Cast Iron Pizza Pan, which has awesome reviews and can be used as a skillet for eggs, pancakes, steaks, fish –  you name it!

(I LOVE cooking with Lodge cast iron on my induction cooktop!)
