Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are delicious and they're wheat free. They taste like oatmeal raisin cookies because I used an oatmeal raisin recipe (courtesy of FoodDoodles), but nixed the raisins (blech raisins!) and subbed with chocolate chips.

I feel like I should be baking lighter more spring-like treats, but I'm still in hibernation mode, so these suit me just fine.  Try them for yourself, they're sweet and not as crumbly as other wheat free cookies I've baked. In fact crumbling these up into a mug with almond milk is pretty deadly. My BFF (who I think is totally skeptical of my wheat free baking) told me they win cookie of the year, so they must be good.
