Notes

Tester's notes: Bonnie got this recipe from her friend Heather, who got it from a manufacturer of gluten-free oats. Gluten free products can now be found at many Winnipeg health food stores, organic food stores, specialty shops and even some grocery chains. This is a soft, chewy, delicious

cookie that should appeal to everyone, gluten issues or not. Bonnie prefers adding raisins and coconut, but you can use any combo. Make sure to watch while baking: peanut butter cookies can scorch quickly.
