Soft & Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal cookies have become one of my favorite types of cookies, sometimes even preferring it to a chocolate chip. I know, my 8 year old self is looking at me in disbelief, but the truth is, the components of both are technically the same. Just add some oats to a classic chocolate chip cookie, and bam you got an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie- the best of both worlds. In my opinion, oats add a nice texture and bite to a cookie with some added whole grains. Who doesn’t love a cookie that’s healthy? Speaking of healthy, this recipe is completely flourless, gluten free, and made with simple, wholesome ingredients. Plus you only need one bowl, which means less dishes, which is practically a win in itself.

The great thing about this recipe is that you can add any additional treats that you’d like. I added some craisins and chocolate chips to mine!

Hope you love these as much as I do!
