Gluten free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe by Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle (Rachelle Himmelman)

My husband has been raving about these cookies for days now, he tells me that these cookies taste exactly how his great grandmother used to make them for him (awesome compliment to me) and they are gluten free.  My family always seems so surprised when I make something gluten free that they used to have that contained wheat or gluten.  "Mom how do you make this taste so darn good gluten free?" Wether I'm at the grocery store, out to dinner or just chit chatting with friends I tell people that gluten free food tastes just as good if not better than foods that contain wheat or gluten.  I'm not quite sure why people have it in my mind that all gluten free food tastes like card board.  :)
I have a very picky family and I'm so very blessed that they all seem to enjoy our way of eating and my cooking and baking, thank goodness.  :)
