If you want to make them oat-free, I highly encourage you to try buckwheat flakes as an alternative to oats. These flakes would make the cookies safely gluten-free, they are super-duper in their nutritional value PLUS no one will know the difference! You can find buckwheat flakes in all Health Food Stores.
