Article Excerpt:

Okay, I managed to squeeze in one final Easter-themed recipe.  I adapted this recipe from Ali's Oatmeal Heart Cookie recipe at Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen, one of my favorite blogs. Ali, the doyen of gluten-free, allergy-free baking, developed an awesome oatmeal heart cutout cookie for Valentine's Day. I added a couple spices and shredded carrot, omitted the sugar, and used some cute spring-themed cookie cutters.  I'm not calling these cookies because they aren't super sweet.  They remind me more of oat biscuits, those tasty, crisp little things from Great Britain.  So, tea biscuits they are!
