I love the way my house smells after baking a fresh batch of cookies. It smells warm, cozy and welcoming. Today while Emma was napping I was in the mood to bake a batch of my favorite chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. I love giving them out to friends and my husband is thrilled about having freshly-baked cookies when he comes home from work. I also think baking cookies just goes hand-in-hand with the holiday season.
These flourless chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are the perfect healthy treat! They require minimal ingredients and are simple to make. They are made with oat flour (just ground up oats), which makes them ‘flourless’. This recipe is free of gluten and dairy as well. These cookies are made with healthy and simple ingredients: oats, oat flour, coconut sugar, egg, cinnamon and vanilla.
