To me, these are unique cookies, but this is a simple cookie recipe that you can try out today, especially with easily available ingredients. You do not need any fancy stuff here to make gluten free cookies.
Flavored with honey, these crunchy bites use a mix of oats, coconut, and barley. If you are on diet and looking for a low fat, low carb recipe, this one should work. With subtle sweetness, this Anzac cookie recipe is a class apart from all other varieties of cookies with oatmeal.
