Gluten-free pumpkin-oatmeal cookies could be describes as Soft, fluffy, pumkin-y deliciousness.
Many gluten-free cookie recipes end up being hard and brittle – like a sweet cracker – or crumbly. But not these. I was looking for a good, healthy cookie recipe, possibly to freeze, for Garrett to snack on. His super power as it happens is making messes, so despite my opinion that these cookies are remarkably un-crumbly, he managed to crumble them all over the living room carpet. So maybe sweet crackers are in order for him. No matter, while they may not be a candidate for large keeping in the snack jar, they’re a great treat.Print
