Soft “Oatmeal” Cinnamon Raisin Cookies

Posted 14 June 2014 | By | Categories: almond flour, cookies, gluten free, grain free, healthy dessert, recipe | No Comments

When I was little, chocolate chip cookies were my favorite type of cookies on the planet. Oatmeal raisin? Not so much. It wasn’t that I didn’t like them, because I did, they just weren’t at the top of the list. It wasn’t until I started cooking and baking when I was 9 or 10 that […]

This recipe is a part of Simply Sugar and Gluten-free’s ‘Slightly Indulgent Tuesday’s’! I used to love wheat thins when I was younger.

Sausage meatballs add flavor to any dish, whether you are adding it to spaghetti (using zucchini noodles, perhaps?) or to eat them on their own, they will definitely be a look forward to meal.
