Oatmeal Eggnog Cookies

Oatmeal Eggnog Cookies are a delicious way to capture that irresistible holiday flavour. They are soft and chewy with that warm nutty nutmeg flavour. If you are an eggnog lover, then you will love these cookies. Oatmeal eggnog cookies don’t actually contain eggnog, they are vegan and also gluten-free!
