Truth be told, I'm not a gluten-free cook. But, I was asked to come up with a recipe for a soft, healthy, gluten-free oatmeal raisin cookie. The first two people that have tried them said the same thing, "You need to sell these." lol Looks like I'm on to something. =) I think this would be a fantastic base recipe. For instance, you could easily make them into chocolate chip oatmeal cookies by omitting the raisins. Add nuts, cinnamon, whatever your dietary needs might be.This is an original recipe. I can promise you that you won't find it anywhere else. Great base recipe for our GF friends.

My Photo
    Drop by heaping tablespoon to parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until edges become golden brown. Refrigerate dough between batches. ** I like my cookies thick and soft. If you like them a little flatter, flatten the tops slightly with your fingers.
