Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, Gluten-Free

Coooooookies! Yes, everyone needs cookies. If you have a sensitive system that can't handle gluten, I'm assuming you have difficulty tracking down tasty treats you can stomach. Well, these babies are yours!

You can also share these with your nearest and dearest, but that's up to you. Maybe they can have the crumbs?

These are soft and chunky, with a nice bite to them with the oatmeal. However, despite the oats, these are not a breakfast cookie. I mean, they're not terribly bad for you, but they are a cookie's cookie, complete with sugar, butter and chocolate.

I think your belly would love the addition of these cookies. It would warmly welcome them, I'm sure.
