Today was Day #5 of Chocolate, Grains and Grasses Theme Week.

I found today's Chocolate Chip and Oatmeal Cookies from Nairn's (Edinburgh, Scotland) strangely addicting. These crunchy, satisfying sweet oat cookies were peppered with small chocolate chips and had a mild, oaty, chocolate flavor.

And the Scottish know their oats. Nairn's has been making oatcakes since 1896, and produces a line of gluten-free cookies made in a dedicated gluten-free bakery. They are careful to source gluten-free oats, and mention (on the back of the box) that one of their sources, a farm in Wyoming, is owned by a family of celiacs.

The box contained 4 "snack and go" packs (with 4 cookies per pack), a perfect size for a packed lunch, hike or emergency snack.

These cookies were made with gluten-free whole grain oats (50%) dark chocolate chips (14%), palm fruit oil from sustainable sources, demerara sugar, inulin, golden syrup, dark chocolate powder (3%), baking soda and sea salt.
