Here’s a great recipe that uses oatmeal instead of wheat flour or having to use a special gluten-free flour blend .
Oats do not contain gluten, but they are often processed in plants that also handle wheat, so the oats processed in these facilities may contain trace amounts of gluten. That’s why to be safe, it’s important to look for gluten-free oats. Bob’s Red Mill is a good one.
I like this recipe because it doesn’t have raisins in it. I realized that the reason I was never a big oatmeal cookie fan is because of the raisins. Here, the raisins are replaced by dried cranberries. And the chocolate chips just make these cookies even yummier! Enjoy!
