Cookies. What is it about cookies that are so darn comforting? For instance, take Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies. Why do people love them? Maybe it’s because they can be eaten on the go, right out of our hands, without the need for plates, utensils, or napkins.
Perhaps it’s because they remind us of our childhood when mom or grandma served us freshly baked cookies with a tall glass of cold milk. Or maybe, just maybe, sharing warm cookies is a great way to make a new lifelong friend.

Several years ago my a close family member informed me that Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies are one of their all-time favorite cookies. It’s crazy but after all these years, I FINALLY made them a big batch of them.
Personally, I find it kinda hard to narrow down my favorite cookie, although I really do love chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin white chocolate drop cookies, chocolate caramel cookies, just to name a few. Sometimes, it’s fun to make sandwich cookies, i.e. chocolate chip mint ice cream cookie sandwiches.
Every single bite of Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies is loaded with a delicious combination of flavors.
Now anyone on a gluten-free diet need not worry because these delicious cookies can easily be modified to be gluten-free. Simply use certified gluten-free oats and vanilla, and gluten-free flour. All of the other ingredients are naturally gluten-free.
