Oatmeal-chocolate cookies get a seriously tasty gluten-free makeover
Not only are these cookies amazingly delicious, but they're gluten-free too. Brown sugar and dark chocolate chunks take classic oatmeal cookies over the top, and don't forget the sprinkling of sea salt on top.
Use a food processor to turn oatmeal into flour for baking these gluten-free treats. These cookies combine oatmeal "flour," almond flour, spices, chocolate chunks and brown sugar to make a sweet snack you might not be able to stop eating.
