Welcome back to “Gluten-Free with your TEA!” People who need to eat gluten-free foods avoid wheat, barley, and rye products. The gluten in these grains may cause digestive troubles and other health issues. Because oats are often stored near wheat, they are also avoided by many gluten-free eaters. This delicious cookie recipe uses certified gluten-free oats to feed your cookie cravings. Enjoy!

How sweet are Your words to my taste,
Sweeter than honey to my mouth! Psalm 119:103 (NKJV)
Today I was short on oats, so I substituted 1 cup shredded coconut for 1 cup oats. It turned out really well! I also used Earth Balance butter, rice milk, and Enjoy Life chocolate chips to make this dairy free. Delicious!
