Gluten-Free Oatmeal Cookies

Today, this Nonnie is sharing a brand new recipe for Gluten-Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. If you follow me on social media, you know that I’ve been blowing up my Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter accounts with posts of our new little grandson. I can’t help it. He’s just so cute!

Anyway, since LittleMan was born, my nurture instincts have kicked into high gear and for me, part of nurturing is to feed people. It’s been a little hectic the past couple of weeks so I haven’t spent very much time in the kitchen other than to throw some quick meals together and we were all having some comfort food withdrawals. So yesterday I decided to bake some of our favorite traditional Chocolate Chip Cookies.

LittleMan and his Mommy & Daddy are staying with us for a few days and since his Mommy is gluten intolerant, I realized that she wouldn’t be able to eat our cookies so I found some gluten-free oatmeal from Trader Joe’s in the pantry and discovered that it had a gluten-free cookie recipe right on the package. Obviously, I can’t take credit for this recipe but I can certainly share it with you. They are absolutely delicious!

The only thing I did differently from the recipe printed on the package was omitted the nuts and pressed the cookies down slightly before baking them because I wasn’t sure home much they would spread out. They turned out perfect!

I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as we have.

Old Fashioned Devil’s Food Cake

 

When my mom passed away, one thing I made sure to keep was her set of Woman’s Day Cookbooks from the early 1970’s. They were a collection earned from a grocery store with Bluechip Stamps. Anyone remember those or am I the only old person here? Anyway, there are twenty-six books in all which means it took her twenty-six weeks to collect them!  They are in very rough condition and when I use them, I do so carefully!

The other day we were craving chocolate cake so I pulled out one of those cookbooks and found the most delicious Devil’s Food Cake recipe which I’m sharing with you today! Trust me, if you like chocolate cake, you won’t be disappointed! In fact, I think this is going to be my new go-to chocolate cake recipe! YUM!
