Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies...

... a dandy treat after a relaxing day in the spring air.
 These cookies are really light and crunchy. A nice alternative to wheat flour based oatmeal cookies that are more on the chewy side.

I used the recipe on Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Old Fashioned Rolled Oats bag, however, I made some modifications.

Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies
3/4 cup brown sugar (loose)
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
2 Tablespoons coconut milk
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
1 cup unsweetened finely shredded organic coconut
1 cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 cups Bob's Gluten Free Old Fashioned Oats
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Add some nuts, too if you feel adventurous

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, coconut oil, vanilla, sugar, coconut milk. Add flour, oats, coconut, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the chocolate chips and nuts last. Mix altogether. Form dough into balls and place about 3" apart on the cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
