5-Ingredient Oatmeal Cookies (Gluten Free & Vegan!)

The only "bad" thing about these cookies is that they're dangerously easy to make — and eat! But with only five ingredients and no refined, processed ingredients, these cookies are one of your best options when the urge to splurge strikes. Store in an resealable container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
