Wheat-Free Soft and Spicy Molasses Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Missmagill

Yummy! You won't even miss the wheat!:] This could be made gluten-free by subbing brown rice flour (or other gluten-free flour) for the spelt flour and the oats. You may add some finely chopped nuts, if you'd like.

These were very good! We have wheat and rice intolerances in the family, so I used rye and barley flour instead of rice and spelt. Very nice, not your usual cookie!!!
