Healthy Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies

Gluten free, dairy free, egg free, vegan, almost sugar free. Think it tastes like cardboard? Think again.

I was playing around with organic ingredients from Whole Foods and came up with this delicious treat. Surprisingly, the cookies turned out better than I expected, and held its shape. (I thought it would crumble since there is no egg–I was wrong). I felt like following that ‘green, organic, yoga, healthy’ trend, and created these cookies to go with it. Enjoy.

  1. How can the cookies be gluten free if yu are using regular flour? The recipe does sound good but I need gluten free.

    Thank you very much for clarifying this for me.
