  1. I saw this recipe you posted on fb a while back, but didn't write it down. Perfect timing for me to come across your awesome new site, I'd planned to bake cookies today :-) Thanks for these great resources and for sharing your story of God's healing through nutrition!

  2. Your welcome, Nancy. I hope you enjoy and can use what you get from visiting Healthy Journey Cafe. You're welcome to share this site with others, especially those who have decided to make a change to achieve optimum wellness.

  3. So if I'm staying away from gluten, should I stay away from oats? Because these cookies sound really really good!

  4. Erin,
    The issue with oats and gluten is not that oats contain gluten, but they are contaminated by gluten having been processed where there is wheat. So unless you have celiac's disease, you are probably alright eating oats. Bob's Red Mill makes gluten-free rolled oats if you want to play it safe.
