These Gluten-Free Oatmeal Cookies Are The Perfect Treat for #NationalOatmealCookieDay

Today is National Oatmeal Cookie Day, and these gluten-free oatmeal cookies are the perfect treat to celebrate. I wasn’t always an oatmeal cookie fan unless you count Walmart’s iced oatmeal cookies. However, my mind on the cookie quickly changed with the right recipe! Oatmeal cookies are super healthy as they are packed with iron and fiber, so you don’t even have to feel guilty about the calories.

Dr. Jessica B. Harris oatmeal cookies are delicious yet straightforward for any oatmeal cookie lovers! She is an award-winning culinary historian, cookbook author, and journalist specializing in the African diaspora’s food and foodways. Dr. Harris married an old-time classic with a family secret that adds a bright twist – lemon extract.

Why Oatmeal Cookies Are Perfect

Did you know the foundation of this beloved cookie provides multiple benefits? Outside of being a household staple, oatmeal is considered a superfood packed with multiple health benefits. Some of those benefits include:

  1. Great for the gut
  2. Reduces cholesterol
  3. Oats are packed with antioxidants

They can satisfy your sweet tooth without all of the guilt because of how nutritious they can be. In addition, these cookies can truly be a blank canvas allowing you to add anything such as nuts, craisins, or in Dr. Harris’ case, coconut.
