We’re pleased to partner with our friends over at Simple Mills for this tasty, gluten-free treat. These cookies are perfect for any cold-weather party you have coming up, and you don’t have to feel guilty about eating a few on the way there.

As I was mixing up the batter I realized how odd it was that I seldom eat hazelnut flavored snacks; not for a matter of preference, but I can never find anything with hazelnutty that isn’t packed with sugar and additives. That’s why these are perfect. The Salted Butter Hazelnut cookies have no artificial sugar additives and are gluten free.

Also, the dark chocolate coconut drizzle ads the perfect cap to this savory treat!
