Glutenfreeda Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

This should make you believe in small miracles.

It’s evening. After dinner. And you want something. Something seems to be an oatmeal cookie. Your brain conjures up the smell of homemade oatmeal cookies fresh from the oven –  and now you might be slightly drooling. Sadly, there’s nothing to be had in the kitchen.

Time to grab the wallet and keys and to the store you go.

I know. You’re probably already in your pajamas, but go with it. A craving is a terrible thing to waste. And now you’re in the store madly looking for the GF oats and there are none. Stupid store. Panic starts to bubble up because you can still smell those imaginary cookies.

But wait. You might be coming up on that small miracle. Off in the area they call Gluten-Free which in reality is half a shelf, there is a box of Glutenfreeda Apple Cinnamon Instant Oatmeal. Friend. You have what you need. Say a small hallelujah – buy the box and take it home.

Relax. You aren’t going to have to eat oatmeal instead of a cookie. With that box of Glutenfreeda Apple Cinnamon Instant Oatmeal you’ll have cookies in no time. Really good cookies.

Full disclosure – no one paid me or asked me to say this stuff. I just like Glutenfreeda oatmeal because it was the only thing I found at a store on a long road trip and it saved our bacon. It’s pretty tasty and versatile. You can make stuff with it. Like these cookies.

See? Small miracles. One tasty cookie at a time.
