Soft & Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies - Gluten Free

READY IN: 2hrs 35mins
Recipe by LARavenscroft

A recipe from that I have altered slightly. If your flour mix does not include xanthan gum, add 1 T of ground flax seed (although you may add it anyway as the outcome of the recipe won't be affected). It is also very important to chill the dough before you bake them - they won't spread as much. NOTE; If you are making this recipe as a non-gluten free recipe using regular all-purpose flour, do not use quick oats as the recipe was made with regular long cooking oats.

These are great, especially considering they didn't use any xanthan gum (usually a GF baking MUST). The only thing I would change is the baking time. The ones I put in for 10 minutes were still raw in the middle, but the ones I put in for 15 minutes burned. I think 12 minutes would be perfect.
