JENNIFER'S OATMEAL SPICE COOKIES (GF)



Jennifer's Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
These are exceptional! They are moderate in carbs, but more of a maintenance-level cookie. A regular oatmeal raisin cookie from MacDonald's comes in at 21 grams of carbs, so these are fully one third of the carbs. I made these for my girlfriends who are not low-carbers. They loved them!

up to 1/4 cup milk or cream (last time I only needed 1 tbsp.....? lol, not sure what's up with that - probably using the erythritol made the difference) - so this is optional
