Gluten Free Orange Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

by tw

This recipe is an oldie for me from my pre-gluten free days. I have always loved them and I don’t know why it’s taken me this long to convert it to being gluten free. I checked and the last time I made them was 2015! That’s way too long to go without these Orange Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies. And did I mentioned, they are filled with big chunks of dark chocolate. It’s an unexpected combo that goes perfectly together.
