Gluten free chocolate chip cookies

It is difficult to be healthy 24/7 and we all have certain weaknesses. Some cravings disappear as healthy eating becomes the norm but certain cravings rear their ugly head every now and again, and thats ok. We just need to remember that balance is important.

This recipe is perfect for those moments when you're craving something sweet and are missing your usual chocolate chip cookies. These cookies can be gluten free, just be sure to buy gluten free oats and chocolate chips. We haven't added in a lot of sugar so they are not overly sweet but if you have given up sugar they'll taste sweet enough. They're delicious just out of the oven and will last a couple of days; that is if you don't eat them all first!
