Oatmeal Barley Cookies (Wheat Free)

“Delicious, chewy, relatively healthy oatmeal cookies that do not contain wheat flour. Chocolate chips, raisins, dried cranberries and butterscotch chips all make great add-ins, you can also add more than the amount specified in the recipe. These cookies travel very well in lunchboxes and backpacks. The original recipe came from the Rocking P Ranch in Nanton, Alberta. I found it in a cookbook called The Cowboy Country Cookbook that my dad bought for me at the UFA in Falher, Alberta, not the place you would think to find a great recipe.”
24 cookies
