Gluten Free Oatmeal Apple Toffee Cookies:

1 stick (1/4 pound) butter
¾ cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1¼ cups Gluten Free All Purpose Flour (****Recipe down below or use a pre-made mix)
½ teaspoon xanthan Gum
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup minced apple, about ¼" cubes or smaller
1½ cups  Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Quick Cooking Oats
⅓ cup toffee bits
Optional 1/3 cup Chopped Walnuts
1.Set your oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment or lightly grease. I used Silpat Baking Mats.
2.Cream together the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
3.Whisk together flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, powder, salt and spices. Add the flour mixture a quarter at a time to the butter mix, beating on low speed after each addition.
4.Gently stir in oats, apple, toffee bits and walnuts.  I used my Kitchenaid mixer to add the Oats and used a Spatula to fold in the Apples, Toffee Bits and Walnuts
5.Place dough by tablespoons on the cookie sheet, about 1½" apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are light brown, the centers are set but still rather soft and pale.
I used the Pampered Chef Cookie Scoop to help measure out the cookies.
Mine took 15 minutes to bake. 
6.Allow to cool a minute on the sheet, then remove cookies to cool completely on racks.

I froze my cookies in a Ziplock bag in a container. They defrost very quickly.

I got this recipe at the Gluten Free Expo.

2 1/4 Cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Brown Rice Flour
1/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Potato Starch
2/3 Cup Bob's Red Mill Tapioca Starch
3/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Sweet Rice Flour
1/3 Cup Cornstarch

Measure all the ingredients into a container. I used a spoon to lightly mix it together then put the cover on and shake well.
(Making sure its a tight fitting cover)

The original recipe called to add 2 tsp. Xanthan Gum
I did not do that, I like to add mine to each recipe individually.
