If you are craving a sweet dessert but adhere to strict dietary restrictions, these gluten-free and vegan oatmeal cookies are the answer to your cravings. From Julia at the Free People blog, the digestion distress-free recipe is one you will not regret later.

Using ingredients such as gluten-free rolled oats, oat flour, coconut sugar, olive or coconut oil, maple syrup and a mashed banana, the recipe for vegan oatmeal cookies also allows you to add in some of your favorites, like raisins, dark chocolate chips (chopped gluten-free ones, of course), cocoa nibs or coconut. These treats are best enjoyed in cold winter weather, accompanying coffee (tea and hot chocolate are also suitable beverages). The light snack makes a great breakfast and late night studying sustenance alike.
