“These cookies resemble oatmeal cookies, but they are crispier and have a unique taste. They don't contain any wheat, gluten, common headache triggers, milk or eggs. They're a nice treat for someone on a restrictive diet like mine, but I think they'll appeal to others too. (It didn't take long for my husband to ask for a second one, and he can eat anything.) I've only made this recipe at high altitude (5200 feet), so you'll have to test my low altitude suggestions.”
30-36 cookies
