One bowl oatmeal cookies. Wouldn’t you like to make a quick batch of gluten free oatmeal cookies that are also vegan? A recipe so easy that all you need is a bowl, a spatula and the ingredients? Well, this is that recipe!
At work we received a new cookbook by Erin McKenna, the owner of Babycakes bakery in New York. Her first cookbook had some gluten free recipes and some not. Her new book “Babycakes, Covers the Classics” has all gluten free vegan recipes.
So far I have tried the oatmeal cookies and the granola. Both were great and I will post the recipe for the granola on next weeks blog.
