Gluten Free Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies

I love Carrot Cake and I love cookies so put them together and you have a pretty unstoppable combination. These Gluten Free Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies are absolutely delicious and definitely on the healthier end of the cookie spectrum because of two ingredients- oatmeal and gluten-free flour. But just because these are a little healthy don't think they lack sweetness or flavor- they definitely have a lot of both thanks to the addition of raisins, cinnamon, and shredded coconut. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed!
