Gluten-Free Chocolate Oatmeal by Sweet Lorens

Hi Everyone,

Loren Brill is the owner of Sweet Loren’s cookies which is a line of cookies that are sold in the frozen section in all of the NYC Whole Foods stores and many more.

Below is Sweet Loren’s very special Chocolate Oatmeal Chunkers cookie recipe that you can make yourself. Thank you Loren for letting us share! The cookies are easy to make and are out of this world amazing. They are SWEET and filling and count as a snack or dessert. We’ve made them a few times and they disappear right away. You’ve probably seen them in our lunch box pictures lately.

Loren’s story is inspiring. In 2006 she got very sick and started focusing on healthy foods, but when she wanted a treat there were no healthy options, so she started her own line of healthy cookies that have all whole food ingredients. Click on Sweet Loren’s link below to look to learn more about her cookies and hear her story. You can also order the cookies on her website.

We hope you enjoy making these delicious cookies. We are eating them right now as we post this blog. Have a great day.  Lyla and Emily, The Kitchen Twins
