Secundogeniture recently acquired a taste for oatmeal raisin cookies. So today I decided to make some for him at home. I looked for a soft and chewy recipe online and found Sally's Soft & Chewy Oatmeal Rasin Cookie recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction blog
I don't bake much anymore as I was recently diagnosed with an allergy to both wheat and gluten. While it's disappointing - because I love baking - I already feel so much better than I have in years. So many problematic issues that had previously been misdiagnosed are resolving themselves. That's such a relief. I have the added benefit of having spent so much time in Brazil - so a lot of recipes that I love so dearly are naturally gluten-free (think rice, beans, and farofa). I miss bread, cakes and cookies - but I can manage that (OK - except at the holidays when I cheat and try some of my favorite holiday cookies).
So while these are NOT gluten free cookies - I can still bake sporadically for my boys. I am not a fan of gluten free flours unless absolutely necessary. The gluten free breads I've tried have been seriously lacking in taste, flavor and consistency - so I simply don't bother anymore.
How about you? Do you have any favorite gluten free products or recipes?
