Modified from the back of the Trader Joe's Rolled Oats bag.
Now my family and I are not gluten free, but every once in awhile we have a family member or friend who is, which is why I LOVE this recipe. It is an overall great cookie with the added bonus of being gluten free if you need that.
I will caution you that it is NOT peanut free, chocolate free or egg free. They are also easy to indulge in and hard to put down! Consider yourself warned.

1 1/4 tsp baking soda
