Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Who doesn’t love a nice chewy oatmeal raisin cookie?! (Well, other than MY husband of course! LOL) I definitely do! And I always think of Subway’s cause they’re just so stinking good! So I set out to make my own, because obviously I can’t have theirs! These are a little thicker (although you can squish them down a little more to get them flatter before you bake) but they have the same taste, texture and chewiness! YUM! I’m glad that it only made 18 cookies because that was more than enough for me! Freezing is always a great option too! 🙂  These stayed nice and moist and chewy for days too! I made them last Friday and they’re still amazing on Wednesday! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, or even had time to cook or bake, but now that things aren’t quite so crazy, I plan on trying out some great new recipes! Tomorrow is hubs b-day so tonight I’m cooking up a feast, so stay tuned for some super yummy dinner recipes coming soon! In the meantime, get in the kitchen already and make some cookies! LOL  Enjoy 🙂
