A friend of mine recently inspired me to try gluten free recipes and while I had the option of purchasing gluten free flour or flour substitutes in the grocery, I wanted to experiment a bit with the stuff I had in my pantry. I got the idea to try these Gluten Free, Vegan Oatmeal Cookies after doing my oats and flax seed bread video. I thought, if I could make bread with that mixture I could probably use it for cookies as well. So I decided to take this recipe that you can find at the back of the cover for the Quaker Oats container and tweak it to make it gluten free and vegan. I mean, if we if we going hipster, is best we go all the way.
