Oats & Maca Breakfast Cookies

Maca adds a wonderfully sweet and cozy flavour to these lower-fat oatmeal cookies, as well as energising benefits. To make this recipe gluten-free, simply use gluten-free oat flour and rolled oats. You can also add in raisins and nuts in addition to/instead of the chocolate chips.
