I like quick recipes and with that said I really like this one. It has since recently become one of my go to quick bakes. The cookies are sweet, soft and chewy. I had to restrain myself from eating the entire batch in one day, that is how good they are. I used quick oats but you can also use rolled oats, either one will work great as long as it is labelled gluten-free.
Sometimes I switch it up a bit by adding raisins, wine and chocolate chips. I even experimented and added ripe bananas (see Banana Oatmeal Cookies for the recipe) which came out really great. You can also add shredded coconut. I like how simple this recipe is because it makes it really easy for us to alter ingredients.
