  1. For best results you should always weigh ingredients like flour and sugar. Kitchen scales are relatively cheap but if you can’t weigh the ingredients, use the spoon and level method (don’t scoop).
  2. Use brown sugar when making these gluten free oatmeal raisin cookies. Brown sugar has a bolder flavor and higher moisture content than regular sugar, which adds to both the moistness and chewiness of the cookies. It also enhances the butteriness (technical term, of course!). You can use light or dark brown sugar.
