Healthy And Nutty Gluten-Free Oatmeal Cookies

Simple Soft-Inner Crunchy-Outer Cookies Great for Health-Conscious Folks

This recipe has been made and eaten many times. It's one of those easy-to-make recipes you want to memorize by heart. The #cookies are soft yet #crunchy at the same time, and #hearty yet not too filling, just enough to be a nice #teatime snack to share among friends. Even Heartbroken Molly says she will make it again as soon as she takes a break from watching her favorite movie The Break-Up on repeat.

Creator's note:

"I came up with the recipe — I still remember — as a way to apologize to my wife that day. So I personally call these 'I'm Sorry Cookies'. She loved them and they got the job done. She's sensitive to gluten and carbohydrate-conscious so I wanted to create a simple cookie that she can eat without having to worry."
