Allergy Friendly Cookies - Gluten, Dairy & Egg Free!

I am a sucker for the challenge of gluten, dairy and egg-free baking, creating options for my clients who are on gut-healing protocols. So, the next delicacy I wanted to conquer is the chewy and moist oatmeal cookie alternative that helps heal your gut with the addition of gelatin.  I like mine plain and simple with... a turmeric latte of course!
