When I discovered "Only Oats" had certified gluten-free oats , I was THRILLED!! The thought of being able to eat oats again was exciting... especially my old-time favorite - oatmeal cookies.
(see how to order Only Oats below)
Then to top it all off.. I found this 'normal' recipe for 'normal' people !! All ordinary ingredients found in anyone's kitchen !!
But the cookie is GLUTEN-FREE !!
I have to share it with you !!(oh.... for those of you who haven't had to learn all this stuff about gluten.... oats is a grain that is gluten-free but the problem is that farmers always rotate crops between wheat and oats which causes cross contamination because some wheat will always come up with the oats and be harvested together - so until Only Oats came to our rescue... oats was on the Celiac forbidden list!)
