I have a new favorite cookie you guys, and (in case you haven’t guessed it already) it’s these salted gluten free oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies!

IMHO they have the perfect texture that every cookie should have – a little crisp on the edges and tender and chewy on the inside. Plus they are loaded UP with melty dark chocolate, and finished with a healthy sprinkle of flaky sea salt – which really takes them to the next level.

If you haven’t tried adding flaky sea salt to your cookies, now is the time my friends! It’s pretty much the best thing since cookies themselves 😉
