Where Are My Valentine’s Day Lovers Out There?!

Some may call Valentine’s Day a commercialized holiday.  And I would have to agree with you… to some extent.

Remove all of the cards, the flowers, the elaborate/expensive dinners and look at what remains….

A holiday that focuses on showing the ones you love just HOW much you love them.

I don’t know about you, but I sure do know that I could use a friendly reminder every now and then!

Whether you are happily married, single, widowed, divorced, or have no interest in a relationship anytime in the near future…

Bake them for a neighbor, bring them to your kid’s classroom, or package them up in individual bags and give them to all of your girlfriends.

But wait!!  Are oats gluten-free?

In this particular recipe, it calls for “gluten-free oats.”

While yes, these are technically “gluten-free” as certified by the GFCO, some people who are sensitive to gluten will still have trouble with oats.

How Can You Evolve these Strawberry Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies?

While these strawberry chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are already gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, and dairy-free, there are a few ways you can change them up according to your dietary/taste preferences:

  • Don’t like strawberries?  Try using raspberries or blueberries.
  • Not vegan?  Feel free to use butter in place of the coconut oil and a regular egg in place of the flax egg.
  • Don’t have maple syrup?  Honey and agave nectar will swap out easily for the maple syrup.
  • Not a dark chocolate fan?  You can use white chocolate chips or milk chocolate instead.
