Delicious Gluten-Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies!

This recipe may be one of my favorites to share! It has taken me a VERY long time to perfect this recipe…but I think you will love it!

Growing up I LOVED my moms oatmeal chocolate chip recipe.

After becoming gluten-free I craved my moms cookie recipe.

It’s only taken me about thirteen years to get it right. But FINALLY I feel like the texture and the flavor is just like the original, delicious cookie that I loved growing up.

I experimented, and using parchment paper is best…it helps the cookie to rise more.
