Gluten-Free Vanilla and Dark Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies

Gluten-Free Vanilla and Dark Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies

I baked a batch of these vegan, gluten free oat cookies last week after dinner and they only took 30 minutes including baking time from start to finish making a wholesome dessert for my kids and I.They’re also ideal as a snack on the go or even breakfast.

My youngest loved them so much he asked me if we could bake them every day! Sweet!
