Gluten free Vegan Iced Oatmeal Cookies

Gluten free Vegan Iced Oatmeal Cookies

Adapted From: Fork and Beans

Recipe by Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle (Rachelle Himmelman)

Cookies, Cookies, Cookies, we all love cookies in this house.  I have recently had to go on more of a restrictive diet these days and have decided to try out some vegan recipes, not just vegan but gluten free and vegan combined.  I really enjoy working with all different types of ingredients.
I have always thought that I wouldn't enjoy it as much, but gosh I really am pleasantly surprised.
My family really doesn't know the difference if I used flaxseed meal opposed to using eggs and or applesauce.  My husband Chris is so funny, he will eat almost any sweet treat that I make and I usually can tell right away if he likes it or not, he really never needs to tell me otherwise.  He truly enjoyed these cookies and asked if I would please pack some for his lunch, let me not forget the kids as they were sneaking cookies every time they entered the kitchen and acted sneaky.  I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we do.
