    I've never seen a recipe. But generally you can replace normal flour with gluten free. I use White Wings gluten free, in the health food section of the supermarket, for my gluten free baking. Really the only difference you will find is the food doesn't last as long, and it sometimes doesn't rise as well in things like cakes. You can use a product called Xantham gum, which you can get from most cake decorating stores to help stabilize whatever you are cooking if you find this is happening badly.

    I think the main issue is the oats - I've never seen GF oats here in Australia - though maybe they're available in specialty shops these days.

    My dd is coeliac, has a milk allergy and has anaphylactic shocks from egg.
    We just use any recipes we find.
    Just change the flour to gluten free.
    Use rice milk instead of milk and Nutalex instead of butter.
    And use apple sauce instead of eggs.
    1/4 cup of apple sauce= 1 egg.
    Or a mix of veg oil, water, and baking powder for egg.

    You can also buy gluten free Muesli, however it's just a rice blend.. Not really "muesli" just looks like it.. If that makes sense...

    Just found this online:

    1 cup butter or coconut oil at room temp (coconut oil will make the cookies dairy free)
    1/2 cup flax seed meal
    1/2 cup water
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 cup coconut flour
    3 cups oat flour
    2 cups rolled gluten free oats
    1 bag dark chocolate chips (73% cocoa will keep the chips dairy & soy free)
    2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast Flakes
    1 tsp baking soda
    3/4 tsp salt
    parchment paper


    Directions

    1. Preheat oven at 375.
    2. Mix flax seed meal and water, set aside 3-5 minutes.
    3. Cream butter/coconut oil and sugar.
    4. Add flax seed mixture and nutritional yeast flakes. Mix until light and fluffy.
    5. Add coconut and oat flour and mix well.
    6. Add baking soda, salt & rolled oats. Mix well.
    7. Add chocolate chips and mix well.
    8. If mixture seems dry add in a little more water, 1 tablespoon at a time.
    9. Bake on parchment lines cookie sheets for 11-15 minutes, depending on oven.


    It says gluten free oats, so I would be hitting up your local Health food store

    Happy baking
