Gluten-Free Oatmeal Cookies with Cranberries and Chocolate Chips

Gluten-Free Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate Chips and Cranberries (400x255)

Last month I had fun making some recipes from Nestle. My husband loved the oatmeal cookie recipe that I made. He called them “an  amalgamation of everything that is good”, so I was determined to make a gluten-free, dairy-free version.

Gluten-Free Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies (400x267)

I have to agree with my husband, these cookies are amazing! I replaced the flour with gluten-free flours, used dairy-free, soy-free margarine, dairy-free chocolate, and rice milk. Even though these are free of most allergens, you will not notice a thing missing! They may just be the best oatmeal cookies ever.

You must be careful when making this recipe to use Gluten-Free Quick Cooking Oats.
